Strategical compensation and driving behaviour in older drivers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande studie jämförde körbeteendet hos äldre (67+) förare som antingen körde under hela året eller endast under sommarperioden. 41 äldre försöksdeltagare körde i VTI:s körsimulator under både vinter- och sommarförhållanden och kombinerade delvis bilkörningen med en sekundär uppgift som mätte visuell uppmärksamhet. Hypotesen var att körbeteendet skulle skilja sig mellan grupperna och att de eventuella skillnaderna skulle vara mera uttalade under vinterförhållanden. Grupperna var olika i så måtto att sommarbilisterna rapporterade mera stress i trafiken och att de sommarkörande männen hade lägre kognitiv status än de manliga åretruntbilisterna. Det fanns dock inga gruppskillnader i körbeteende. Slutsatsen är att den strategiska kompensationen antingen inte hade någon effekt på körbeteende eller att effekterna var så subtila att de inte kunde upptäckas i en simulerad situation.

Abstract [en]

The present study compared the driving behaviour of older (67+) drivers who either drove throughout the year or only during the summer season. 41 older subjects drove in VTI’s simulator in both winter and summer conditions, partly combining the driving task with a secondary task of visual detection. It was hypothesised that the groups would differ as to their driving behaviour and that any differences would be more pronounced during winter conditions. While the groups did differ with respect to stress experienced in traffic (more for those driving in summer only) and to cognitive status (only in males, lower for those driving in summer only), there were practically no differences in their driving behaviour. The conclusion is that the strategic limitation of driving exposure either had not affected their driving behaviour or that the differences were too subtle to be detected in a simulated driving situation.
