The Psychology of Driving and Traffic Safety for Seniors

Accident statistics as related to driver age will be presented briefly and the implications of these will be discussed. Limitations encountered by many older drivers (vision, cognition, reaction time, range of movement restrictions, driver workload, medical conditions, etc.) will be presented. Design of roads and traffic signs to meet the needs of older drivers will be outlined. Other topics will include the effects of alcohol, drugs and medications, fatigue, driver aggression, gender differences, nighttime driving, and driver distraction. Medical fitness to drive and driving cessation are discussed. Issues related to older pedestrians, especially in winter, are described briefly. 

Bob Dewar is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Calgary, where he taught from 1965 to 1990. He was the recipient of the 1990 Human Factors Society's A. R. Lauer Award for outstanding contributions to the understanding of human factors aspects of highway safety and driver education. He has presented several workshops and has co-authored three books related to driving and traffic safety. His publications include book chapters on older drivers, as well as a discussion of older pedestrians. His research and consulting include investigation of traffic accidents, and evaluation of traffic signs, especially for older drivers.

Part 1: Results of a  U of C Concussion Research Program

Presenter: Dr. Keith Owen Yeates

What is the ICRP?

The integrated concussion research program (ICRP) is a University of Calgary-wide initiative to study concussion, which has brought together experts from the Cumming School of MedicineFaculty of Kinesiology, and Faculty of Arts, with support from the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute (ACHRI) and the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI).

What is the problem the ICRP is addressing?

Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), including concussion, is a common occurrence. In Canada, approximately 250,000 concussions occur per year. Unfortunately, concussions can be difficult to detect and diagnose and can result in long-term problems. The ICRP was developed to address the growing concern about concussions, better the lives of those who have experienced these injuries, and prevent concussions for upcoming generations.

How are we going to address this problem?
