Abstract [en]

The present on-road study is part of a major research project, Safe Mobility for Older Drivers – SAFE MOVE, carried out between Sweden and France in collaboration. 42 participants were recruited to perform an on-road driving. The aim was to identify the cognitive and driving ability of the drivers from the cohort and to match it with their own assessment of ability. The project also aimed to identify difficulties encountered in traffic, both the type of behaviour and in which traffic scenarios they encountered the difficulties. The participants drove for 45 minutes in many different traffic environments. Two more people were present in the vehicle; a driving instructor who was responsible for safety (dual controls) and gave directions to follow throughout the route and an occupational therapist who observed and assessed the driving by means of the B On-road protocol. They also underwent a cognitive screening. Results showed that the behaviour which were found challenging for the drivers were related to speed adaptation, driving too fast for the situation, and lack of visual attention to other road users at intersections. All drivers had a visual acuity level required for holding a driving license in Sweden.

Abstract [sv]

I detta notat presenteras resultat från en delstudie inom forskningsprojektet Safe Mobility for Older Drivers (Safemove). Ett körtest på väg visade att det var främst anpassning av fart och brist på uppmärksamhet som skapade problem för förarna. 42 personer i åldrarna 70 eller äldre rekryterades till ett körtest på väg. Målet var att identifiera förarnas kognitiva förmåga samt körförmåga och matcha detta med deras bedömningar av den egna körförmågan. Forskarnas hade också som mål att identifiera vad de äldre upplever som svårigheter i trafiken, både typ av beteende och i vilka trafiksituationer som svårigheter uppstår. Deltagarna körde i 45 minuter i många olika trafikmiljöer. I bilen fanns med en körinstruktör som var ansvarig för säkerheten (hade dubbla kontroller) och gav instruktioner att följa genom hela körningen. Dessutom observerade och bedömde en arbetsterapeut körningen med hjälp av ett B On-road protokoll. Förarna fick också göra en kognitiv screening. Resultaten från körtestet visar att de brister som fanns var relaterade till anpassning av farten och brist på uppmärksamhet i korsningar. Resultaten från de kognitiva testerna visade på god uppmärksamhet eller god kognitiv förmåga för deras ålder. Det visade sig att de förare som hade bättre resultat i de kognitiva testen också gjorde färre fel under körningen på väg
