Do housing tenure and car access predict health because they are simply markers of income or self esteem? A Scottish study. (1/1390)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate relations between health (using a range of measures) and housing tenure or car access; and to test the hypothesis that observed relations between these asset based measures and health are simply because they are markers for income or self esteem. DESIGN: Analysis of data from second wave of data collection of West of Scotland Twenty-07 study, collected in 1991 by face to face interviews conducted by nurse interviewers. SETTING: The Central Clydeside Conurbation, in the West of Scotland. SUBJECTS: 785 people (354 men, 431 women) in their late 30s, and 718 people (358 men, 359 women) in their late 50s, participants in a longitudinal study. MEASURES: General Health Questionnaire scores, respiratory function, waist/hip ratio, number of longstanding illnesses, number of symptoms in the last month, and systolic blood pressure; household income adjusted for household size and composition; Rosenberg self esteem score; housing tenure and care access. RESULTS: On bivariate analysis, all the health measures were significantly associated with housing tenure, and all except waist/hip ratio with car access; all except waist/hip ratio were related to income, and all except systolic blood pressure were related to self esteem. In models controlling for age, sex, and their interaction, neither waist/hip ratio nor systolic blood pressure remained significantly associated with tenure or care access. Significant relations with all the remaining health measures persisted after further controlling for income or self esteem. CONCLUSIONS: Housing tenure and car access may not only be related to health because they are markers for income or psychological traits; they may also have some directly health promoting or damaging effects. More research is needed to establish mechanisms by which they may influence health, and to determine the policy implications of their association with health.  (+info)

Biomarkers for exposure to ambient air pollution--comparison of carcinogen-DNA adduct levels with other exposure markers and markers for oxidative stress. (2/1390)

Human exposure to genotoxic compounds present in ambient air has been studied using selected biomarkers in nonsmoking Danish bus drivers and postal workers. A large interindividual variation in biomarker levels was observed. Significantly higher levels of bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts (75.42 adducts/10(8) nucleotides) and of 2-amino-apidic semialdehyde (AAS) in plasma proteins (56.7 pmol/mg protein) were observed in bus drivers working in the central part of Copenhagen, Denmark. In contrast, significantly higher levels of AAS in hemoglobin (55.8 pmol/mg protein), malondialdehyde in plasma (0. 96 nmol/ml plasma), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-albumin adduct (3.38 fmol/ microg albumin) were observed in the suburban group. The biomarker levels in postal workers were similar to the levels in suburban bus drivers. In the combined group of bus drivers and postal workers, negative correlations were observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adduct and PAH-albumin levels (p = 0.005), and between DNA adduct and [gamma]-glutamyl semialdehyde (GGS) in hemoglobin (p = 0.11). Highly significant correlations were found between PAH-albumin adducts and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and GGS in hemoglobin (p = 0.001). Significant correlations were also observed between urinary 8-oxo-7, 8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine and AAS in plasma (p = 0.001) and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.002). The influence of the glutatione S-transferase (GST) M1 deletion on the correlation between the biomarkers was studied in the combined group. A significant negative correlation was only observed between bulky carcinogen-DNA adducts and PAH-albumin adducts (p = 0.02) and between DNA adduct and urinary mutagenic activity (p = 0.02) in the GSTM1 null group, but not in the workers who were homozygotes or heterozygotes for GSTM1. Our results indicate that some of the selected biomarkers can be used to distinguish between high and low exposure to environmental genotoxins.  (+info)

Urban-rural comparisons of drink-driving behaviour among late teens: a preliminary investigation. (3/1390)

A preliminary study was conducted to examine the nature and extent of urban-rural differences in self-reported drinking and driving among youths in Western Australia. A total of 102 youths aged 17, 18 and 19 years were surveyed via a random street sampling technique about their alcohol consumption and drink-driving behaviour. Analyses indicated that urban youths had a significantly higher level of self-reported drink-driving behaviour than their rural counterparts. Males indicated a higher level of self-reported drink-driving behaviour than females. This article also provides a review and summary of youth drink-driving literature with special focus on urban-rural comparisons.  (+info)

Considerations in pharmaceutical conversion: focus on antihistamines. (4/1390)

The practice of pharmaceutical conversion, which encompasses three types of drug interchange (generic, brand, and therapeutic substitution), is increasing in managed care settings. Pharmaceutical conversion has numerous implications for managed care organizations, their healthcare providers, and their customers. Although drug cost may be a driving consideration in pharmaceutical conversion, a number of other considerations are of equal or greater importance in the decision-making process may affect the overall cost of patient care. Among these considerations are clinical, psychosocial, and safety issues; patient adherence; patient satisfaction; and legal implications of pharmaceutical conversion. Patient-centered care must always remain central to decisions about pharmaceutical conversion. This article discusses the issues related to, and implications of, pharmaceutical conversion utilizing the antihistamines class of drugs as the case situation.  (+info)

Simple reaction time, duration of driving and sleep deprivation in young versus old automobile drivers. (5/1390)

Car accidents are one of the major causes of death in modern society and sleepiness is identified as one major risk factor. The purposes of the present study were: (1) to relate the sleep loss and driving time to a performance indicator and (2) to identify risk factors of performance decrement. We investigated 294 drivers (age < 30 years, n = 100; age > or = 30 years, n = 194) who drove into a rest stop area. All were asked to fill out a questionnaire about the drive and previous sleep/wake pattern, and to carry out a 10 min, simple reaction time (RT) test. The level of performance is identified by the 10% slowest RTs. Multiple regression analysis, with the mean of the 10% Slowest RTs as the dependent variable, showed that age, duration of drive, and duration (shortness) of previous breaks were the main predictors. Our study suggests that public awareness may need to be raised with respect excessive length of driving, especially in young drivers.  (+info)

A survey of attitudes and knowledge of geriatricians to driving in elderly patients. (6/1390)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the attitudes of consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society to elderly patients driving motor vehicles. DESIGN: An anonymous postal survey assessing knowledge and attitudes to driving in elderly people. A standardized questionnaire was used and five case histories were offered for interpretation. SETTING: The study was co-ordinated from a teaching hospital. SUBJECTS: The 709 consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society. Four hundred and eighteen responses were obtained, which represents a 59% response rate. RESULTS: 275 Respondents (68%) correctly realised that a person aged 70 had a duty to inform the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) about their eligibility to drive. The remainder did not. Most (315; 75%) believed that the overall responsibility for informing the DVLA was with the patient. If a patient was incapable of understanding advice on driving because of advanced dementia, 346 (83%) would breach patient confidentiality and inform the authority directly. Where a patient was fully capable of understanding medical advice but ignored it, 72% of geriatricians would have legitimately breached patient confidentiality and informed the DVLA. Most geriatricians (88%) saw their main role as one of providing advice on driving to patients and their families. Enforcing DVLA regulations was not seen as an appropriate function, unless the patient was a danger to themselves or other drivers. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variation in knowledge of driving regulations and attitudes to driving in elderly patients. Better education of geriatricians should improve awareness of when elderly drivers can safely continue to drive.  (+info)

The effects of age and alcohol intoxication on simulated driving performance, awareness and self-restraint. (7/1390)

AIMS: To investigate whether, compared with middle-aged men (aged 30-50), older men (age > or =60) (i) perform more poorly on a driving simulator and (ii) are more sensitive to the effects of ethanol in terms of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and driving performance, but more aware of their driving difficulties, and therefore exercise better driving judgement. METHODS: 14 Healthy middle-aged men (mean age 36 years) were compared with 14 healthy older men (mean age 69 years) on an interactive driving simulator, while sober and while legally intoxicated (BAC >80 mg/dl). RESULTS: Older age was associated with poorer driving performance on the simulator. While sober, older men exhibited more improper braking, slower driving, greater speed variability, fewer appropriate full stops and more crashes, and spent more time executing left turns (across oncoming traffic); all values < or =0.02. BACs > or =80 mg/dl were associated with impaired driving, with more inappropriate braking, fewer appropriate full stops and more time executing left turns (all values > or =0.02) and trends towards more speed variability, more low speed collisions and more wrong turns (values <0.1). However, similar ethanol consumption did not produce higher peak BAC or more driving impairments in older drivers. While there were no differences between age groups in terms of awareness of intoxication or driving difficulties, older men were unwilling to drive while legally intoxicated because of fear of physical injury, whereas middle-aged men were more likely to avoid driving when intoxicated due to fear of legal ramifications. CONCLUSION: While both age and legal intoxication affected driving performance, older men were no more sensitive to ethanol in terms of peak BACs, driving performance or awareness/judgement than middle-aged men.  (+info)

Drinking and driving among US high school seniors, 1984-1997. (8/1390)

OBJECTIVES: This article reports the prevalence of, and trends in, driving after drinking and riding in a car with a driver who has been drinking among American high school seniors, based on data from more than a decade (1984-1997) of annual national surveys. METHODS: Logistic regressions were used to assess the effects of demographic factors (gender, region of country, population density, parental education, and race/ethnicity) and selected "lifestyle" factors (religious commitment, high school grades, truancy, illicit drug use, evenings out per week, and miles driven per week). RESULTS: Rates of adolescent driving after drinking and riding with a driver who had been drinking declined significantly from the mid-1980s to the early or mid-1990s, but the declines have not continued in recent years. Rates of driving or riding after drinking were higher among high school seniors who are male. White, living in the western and northeastern regions of the United States, and living in rural areas. Truancy, number of evenings out, and illicit drug use all related significantly positively with the dependent variables, whereas grade point average and religious commitment had a negative relationship. Miles driven per week related positively to driving after drinking.  (+info)

Association study indicates that the decrease in fatalities among teen drivers is more likely to reflect improvements among younger teen drivers. This leaves older teen drivers (ages 18-20) at a high risk of involvement in a fatal car crash.. According to the study, When the teen crash data is segmented by young and older teen drivers, the decline in fatal crashes is larger for younger (56%) than older teens (44%). The fatal crash rates per 100,000 licensed drivers for the two groups also showed better improvement for young versus older teens, at 51 percent and 40 percent, respectively. For both teen driver age groups, the rate is twice as high for males as it for females. A closer examination of the data by age also revealed that 19-year-olds accounted for the greatest number of teen drivers killed during this 10-year period, followed by 20- and 18-year-olds.. The Graduated Driver Licensing program, in effect in all 50 states, has reduced the number of teen crashes by up to 30 percent. ...
Objectives: Methamphetamine is considered to be one of the most popularly abused drugs by drivers; however, its exact effect on driving and driving behaviour has yet to be thoroughly investigated. This being despite methamphetamines increased prevalence in injured and deceased drivers. Methods: Twenty healthy recreational illicit stimulant users (10 male and 10 female), aged between 21 and 32 years (mean = 25.4 years, SD = 3.3 years) attended two testing sessions involving oral consumption of 0.42 mg/kg d-methamphetamine or a matching placebo. The drug administration was counter-balanced, double-blind, and medically supervised. At each session driving, performance was assessed 2.5 h post drug administration. Results: d-methamphetamine (0.42 mg/kg) did not significantly impair overall simulated driving performance 2.5 h post drug administration. At the individual driving variable level, participants in the d-methamphetamine condition were observed to be driving slower when an emergency situation

PY - 2010/1/1. Y1 - 2010/1/1. N2 - Objectives: To identify neuropsychological factors associated with driving errors in older adults. Design: Cross-sectional observational study. Setting: Neuropsychological assessment laboratory and an instrumented vehicle on a 35-mile route on urban and rural roads. Participants: One hundred eleven older adult drivers (aged 65-89; mean age 72.3) and 80 middle-aged drivers (aged 40-64; mean age 57.2). Measurements: Explanatory variables included age, neuropsychological measures (cognitive, visual, and motor), and a composite cognitive score (COGSTAT). The outcome variable was the safety error count, as classified according to video review using a standardized taxonomy. Results: Older drivers committed an average of 35.8 ± 12.8 safety errors per drive, compared with an ...
If you want to drive a lorry or a bus, you will need to take a theory and practical driving test. The driving tests are designed to test the skills you will need to be a vocational driver.
It has been shown that texting degrades driving performance, but the extent to which this is mediated by the drivers age and postural stability has not been addressed. Hence, the present study examined the effects of texting, sitting surface stability, and balance training in young and older adults driving performance. Fifteen young (mean age = 24.3 years) and 13 older (mean age = 62.8 years) participants were tested in a driving simulator with and without texting on a smartphone and while sitting on a stable or unstable surface (i.e., a plastic wobble board), before and after a 30-min sitting balance training. Analyses of variance showed that texting deteriorated driving performance but irrespective of sitting surface stability. Balance training decreased the negative effects of texting on driving, especially in older adults. Perceived workload increased when drivers were texting, and balance training reduced perceived workload. Perceived workload was higher while sitting on the unstable ...
The initially clearly increased incidence of MI for professional drivers gradually approached the incidence for other manual workers. Even so, taxi and lorry drivers continued to have an increased incidence of MI in the latter part of the study period (1985-96). Bus drivers had the most favourable trend in MI incidence during the study period. Analysis of relative risk for bus drivers over the period 1985-96 indicated no excess risk (table 2). However, this point estimate is sensitive to the choice of cut-offs for the time periods. The analysis of incidence per two year period (fig 1) indicated that the incidence of MI still tended to be higher among bus drivers than among other manual workers, and close to the incidence among lorry drivers.. The underlying causes for the decrease in incidence of MI among professional drivers are unclear, although it is likely that the decline in risk to some extent may be attributed to changes in major known risk factors. When coronary risk factors in various ...
Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death for young people. The investigators have recently found that driving after using cannabis is more common among young Canadian drivers than driving after drinking. While this observation raises concerns, the effects of cannabis on driving-related skills in this age group are not well understood. As well, evidence suggests that residual effects of cannabis on driving-related skills may be observed up to 24 hours later. These residual effects may have important implications for the effects of cannabis use on collision risk, but little evidence on them in available. This study will examine the effects of a single dose of cannabis (marijuana) on driving-related skills immediately following consumption, 24 hours later, and 48 hours later. To date, the residual effect at 48 hours has not been examined. A total of 142 subjects aged 19 to 25 years old will be randomly assigned to smoke either a placebo or active cannabis cigarette (12.5% THC ...

After sexually abusing a feline in my last foray into coherant ranting on the subject of my less than kosher driving test, I reapplied and included a letter from work. Well the letter must have had some effect because here I am, only a month later, having sat my second driving test. I arrived at the Cork test center at around 8am this morning for a pre-test lesson, after which I spent several tense minutes in the waiting room being finally called around 9.20am. I felt somewhat better going into this test knowing that the rotund assfork of a so-called human being that tested me the last time (tested my driving, patience, etc) was on holidays (according to my driving instructor) and so Id probably get a fighting chance.. A female tester stuck her head into the waiting room, populated solely by me and my loudly churning stomach. Only one left, heh heh or something. Thats what I said, she just informed me that someone would be right with me. Not a minute later, the door opened and just through ...

Epidemiological data on low back pain (LBP) of this occupational group are very scarce. Aims: To examine LBP in taxi drivers and its association with prolonged driving and other occupational factors. Methods: We analyzed the cross-sectional data from the Taxi Drivers Health Study. Standardized instruments were used to collect information on personal factors, work-related physical and psychosocial factors and driving time profiles. LBP prevalence was assessed using the modified Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire. Multiple logistic regression models were employed for statistical analyses. Results: Of 1242 drivers, 51% reported LBP in the ...
Two backseat evaluators trained in the use of a driving performance rating scale provided judgments about on-road driving performance by the bioptic and normally sighted drivers. The details of the on-road assessment are provided in a previous report, 19 and thus only key elements will be summarized here. On-road driving performance was assessed under natural in-traffic conditions on a 14.6-mile course during the day in commercial and residential areas. A CDRS sat in the front passenger seat of the test vehicle and monitored safety. She had access to a passenger-side vehicle brake for the purposes of maintaining safety. Each backseat evaluator independently provided ratings on eight driving behaviors/skills using a 3-point scale described in detail elsewhere, 24 with 1 = Failure to execute skill/behavior, 2 = Some problems with executing skill/behavior but not complete failure, and 3 = Good execution of skill/behavior. One backseat evaluator, designated as the primary evaluator, sat in ...
Stimulant drugs are commonly abused and also used to promote wakefulness, yet their effects on driving performance during sleep deprivation have not been thoroughly researched in experimental studies. The aims were to assess the effects on fundamental driving parameters during simulated driving of two doses of d-amphetamine and further to assess the interaction between d-amphetamine and sleep deprivation. A double-blind, placebo-controlled experiment including 18 healthy male volunteers was conducted. The participants felt more alert when taking a dose of d-amphetamine than when taking placebo, and the effect was stronger for the higher dose. However, the data did not show any evidence that taking d-amphetamine prevented the subjects from becoming successively sleepier during the night. A significant main effect of the dose was found for three out of the five primary indicators where the lower dose led to improved driving. These indicators were crossing-car reaction time, and coherence and delay ...

Nefazodone is a new serotonergic antidepressant with equivalent efficacy to the tricyclic antidepressants, yet producing clinically less side-effects, such as sedation, that might cause functional impairment. The present study compared the acute and subchronic effects of nefazodone and the tricyclic antidepressent imipramine on driving performance, cognitive functions and daytime sleepiness. Twenty-four healthy subjects (12 adults and 12 elderly from both sexes) received the treatments (nefazodone 100 mg b.i.d., nefazodone 200 mg b.i.d., imipramine 50 mg b.i.d. and placebo) for seven days with a seven days washout period. Measurements were performed on day 1 and day 7. These included a standard over-the-road driving test, a psychomotor test battery and sleep latency tests, using objective EEG recordings. The results showed that imipramine had a detrimental effect after a single dose on driving performance, primarily in the adult group, that diminished after repeated dosing. Minor impairment of ...

While previous studies showed that teenagers with access to their own vehicle versus a shared family vehicle had significantly higher risk of self-reported crashes, some findings suggest that greater driving exposure and frequent risky driving behaviours may explain the increased risks. This study investigated the relationship between vehicle access and crash risk among young Australian drivers and the effect of driving exposure and risky driving on the relationship. The DRIVE study collected information on crash risk factors from 20,822 newly-licensed drivers aged 17-24 years in New South Wales, Australia between 2003-2004 and prospectively linked responses to police-recorded crashes, licensing, traffic offences and health records. Based on self report, young driver access to a vehicle was categorised as: family vehicle, own vehicle, other vehicle and no access. Poisson regression was used to model crash risk (average follow-up = 2 years) by type of vehicle access, controlling for confounders ...

This study is concerned with the safety risk of reduced visibility on roadways. Inclement weather events such as fog/smoke (FS), heavy rain (HR), high winds, etc, do affect every road by impacting pavement conditions, vehicle performance, visibility distance, and drivers behavior. Moreover, they affect travel demand, traffic safety, and traffic flow characteristics. Visibility in particular is critical to the task of driving and reduction in visibility due FS or other weather events such as HR is a major factor that affects safety and proper traffic operation. A real-time measurement of visibility and understanding drivers responses, when the visibility falls below certain acceptable level, may be helpful in reducing the chances of visibility-related crashes. In this regard, one way to improve safety under reduced visibility conditions (i.e., reduce the risk of visibility related crashes) is to improve drivers behavior under such adverse weather conditions. Therefore, one of objectives of this
The principal objective of the study was to examine the effect of Telfast® 180, an antihistamine, on driver behaviour, decision-making, and reaction time. A sample of 255 volunteers participated in the study. The sample was randomly divided into two groups, viz. a placebo and a Telfast group. One of the groups received Telfast and the other a placebo. Initially all the participants were given a standardised driving test, as well as a psychomotor test. Immediately thereafter the placebo group received their placebo tablets and the Telfast group their Telfast tablets. Exactly 2,6 hours later every participant was tested again, using the same tests as before. No statistically significant differences were found between the Placebo group and the Telfast group. No sedative effects due to Telfast® 180 were thus evident ...
April 17, 2015, 6:56 PM Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway on Disney property, but the track is owned and operated by Petty Holdings The gentleman who was killed was a employee of the driving experience. According to the Orlando Sentinel on April 15, Many in the racing and driving community are questioning the decision to run the cars at the Exotic Driving Experience in an opposite direction than the one the track was originally designed for. NASCAR cars at the track run counterclockwise but the exotic ones go in a clockwise direction. The clockwise direction could have made the guardrails position deadly, some in the racing/driving community say. Florida Highway Patrol says it is investigating the placement of the guardrail. The article goes on to specify the cause of death, The instructor killed in a crash at the Exotic Driving Experience at the Walt Disney World Speedway died from blunt impact injuries to the torso with a lacerated aorta, the Orange/Osceola County ...

Quail roadside survey shows populations up 21 percent statewide over last year. It is still early, but all indications point to a good season for Oklahoma quail hunters. August roadside surveys conducted by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation show a statewide increase of 21 percent over the 2002 survey.. The surveys dont necessarily predict what quail season is going to be like, but they do give us an idea of how productive the spring breeding season was for quail. The October counts should provide important information about this falls quail population, said Mike Sams, upland bird biologist for the Department. Although drought conditions persisted through out much of the early nesting season, June rains appeared to have slowed down any negative effects on reproduction.. The statewide quail index is up 37 percent from the previous 13 year average.. The August surveys showed increases in quail numbers over last year in all regions with the exception of the southeast region. The ...

Since the American Academy of Pediatrics published the 1996 statement on the teenaged driver, almost all states have enacted some form of a graduated driver licensing (GDL) law. In the traditional 2-stage approach, after the novice passed vision and knowledge tests, he or she obtained a learners permit. Because most states had no requirement for the permit to be held for a minimum time period, many teens moved quickly through this learning stage without much chance to develop adequate driving skills.46 Once a specified age was reached, the teenaged driver passed a road test and obtained an unrestricted license.. In contrast, in a GDL system, there are 3 stages: a learners permit, an intermediate or provisional stage, and a regular drivers license. Each stage has specific components, restrictions, and minimum time requirements. To graduate to the next stage, the novice must spend the required time at the lower stage, acquire and demonstrate proficiency in driving skills, and not incur a ...
As the number of drivers with cognitive impairment increases, family physicians are more likely to become involved in decisions about cessation of driving privileges in older patients. Physicians who care for cognitively impaired older adults should routinely ask about driving status. In patients who continue to drive, physicians should assess pertinent cognitive domains, determine the severity and etiology of the dementia, and screen for risky driving behaviors. Cognitive impairment detected by office-based tests may indicate that the patient is at risk of a motor vehicle crash. Referral for performance-based road testing may further clarify risk and assist in making driving recommendations. Physicians should assist families in the difficult process of driving cessation, including providing information about Web sites and other resources and clarifying the appropriate state regulations. Some states require reporting of specific medical conditions to their departments of motor vehicles.

In order to determine the accuracy of self-report of on-road crashes and traffic offences among participants in the DRIVE study, 2991 young drivers in New South Wales, Australia who completed the follow-up questionnaire were asked whether they had been involved in an on-road crash or were convicted for a traffic offence while driving during the year prior to the survey. This information was linked to police crash data to determine the level of accuracy of self-report of on-road crashes. There was a high level of accuracy in young drivers self-report of police recorded crashes (85.1%; 95% CI 78.2% to 92.1%) and of police recorded traffic offences (83.0%; 95% CI 79.4% to 86.6%). Results suggest that surveys may be useful tools for estimating the incidence of on-road crashes and traffic offences in young drivers. The findings are particularly relevant to jurisdictions where access to administrative data is limited.

BACKGROUND: Little has been published on changes in young driver fatality rates over time. This paper examines differences in Australian young driver fatality rates over the last decade, examining important risk factors including place of residence and socioeconomic status (SES). METHODS: Young driver (17-25years) police-recorded passenger vehicle crashes were extracted from New South Wales State records from 1997-2007. Rurality of residence and SES were classified into three levels based on drivers residential postcode: urban, regional, or rural; and high, moderate, or low SES areas. Geographic and SES disparities in trends of fatality rates were examined by the generalized linear model. Chi-square trend test was used to examine the distributions of posted speed limits, drinking driving, fatigue, seatbelt use, vehicle age, night-time driving, and the time from crash to death across rurality and socioeconomic status. RESULTS: Young driver fatality rate significantly decreased 5% per year (p|0.05);

The prevalence of prescription opioid use among drivers has increased markedly in the past two decades. The purpose of this study is to assess the associations of prescription opioid use and alcohol use with the risk of fatal crash involvement in US drivers. We performed a population-based case-control study using toxicological testing data from two national data systems. Cases (n = 3606) were drivers involved in fatal motor vehicle crashes selected from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System and controls (n = 15,600) were drivers participating in the 2007 and 2013 National Roadside Surveys of Alcohol and Drug Use by Drivers. Multivariable logistic regression was used to estimate odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) of fatal crash involvement associated with prescription opioid use with and without the presence of alcohol. Overall, cases were significantly more likely than controls to test positive for prescription opioids (5.0% vs. 3.7%, p | 0.001), alcohol (56.2% vs. 7.1%, p | 0

Alcohol is a major factor in traffic accidents. Based on data from the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there was an alcohol-impaired traffic fatality every 50 minutes in 2018.. Alcohol-impaired crashes are those that involve at least one driver or a motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 grams per deciliter or above, the legal definition of impaired driving. According to NHTSA 10,511 people died in alcohol-impaired crashes in 2018. Alcohol-impaired crash fatalities accounted for 29 percent of all crash fatalities.. The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates 1,001,329 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics in 2018. The arrest rate works out to one arrest for about every 227 licensed drivers in the United States.. The definition of alcohol-impaired driving was consistent throughout the United States until December 2018. All states and the District of Columbia except ...
Motor-vehicle crashes (MVCs) are the leading cause of death for persons aged 15-20 years in the United States (1). Although the 11.9 million young drivers aged 15-20 years constituted only 6.7% of the total number of licensed drivers in the United States during 1995, they represented a disproportionate 14% of all drivers involved in fatal MVCs. In addition, adjusting for the number of miles driven, rates of fatal crashes were higher for young drivers than for drivers in any other age group (e.g., the rate for 16-year-olds was 18 times that for persons aged 30-34 years) (2). This report summarizes trends in involvement in fatal MVCs by drivers aged 15-20 years during 1988-1995; these findings document an overall decline in involvement by young drivers in fatal crashes in the United States. This analysis used data from the Fatal Accident Reporting System of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). A driver was defined as an operator of a moving motor vehicle. A fatal MVC was a ...
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) withdraw the March 10, 2016, advance notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the prevalence of moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) among individuals occupying safety sensitive positions in highway and rail transportation, and its potential consequences for the safety of highway and rail transportation.
Automobile driving requires multiple brain functions. However, the brain regions related to driving behavior are unknown. Therefore, we measured activity of the frontal, parietal and occipital lobes during driving using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). Cortical activation patterns were examined in relation to driving behaviors, such as steering motion, accelerator pedal motion, and speed control. Six healthy adults participated in the experiment. Cerebral oxygen exchange (COE) was calculated based on the oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin concentrations measured by fNIRS. The COE and driving behavior data were collected every 1 m and averaged for all subjects. Functional NIRS data for all 98 channels were extracted using principal component analysis. Similarity between extracted components and driving behaviors were confirmed by |cosine similarity||0.3. Among the factors with confirmed similarity, we identified brain regions with high principal component loading (|PCL||0.4). Among the 16
There are roughly 260 million vehicles in the United States. A public with lots of vehicles unfortunately has a lot of vehicle accidents. These collisions disproportionately injure and kill teenagers. In response to a dire situation, Congress established the third week of October as National Teen Driver Safety Week. This year it takes place October 18th - 24th.. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 14 - 18 year olds in the US. Teenagers are only 14% of the US population, but account for 30% of the fatal accidents, according to the CDC. A 2007 study showed that teens are aware drunk driving greatly increases the chances of an accident, but that they are not aware of the dangers of distracted driving. Problem areas include speeding, a lack of seat belt use, texting, alcohol use, and distracting passengers. The NHTSA shows that every day, an average of seven teens are killed in vehicle accidents.. For National Teen ...
Background: In African cities, chronic exposure to pollutants is the most common public health problem faced daily by motorcycle taxi drivers. In Benin, studies conducted on motorcycle drivers, have shown the presence of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter in ambient air, which may affect lung function. Aims: This study aims to diagnose potential respiratory problems among 48 motorcycle taxi drivers (47.02 ± 8.75 years) compared to a control group made up of 52 people (46.38 ± 8.81 years) in Porto-Novo, Benin. Methods: A questionnaire, two exploration pulmonary function tests and two 6-minute walk tests were used to identify symptoms and changes in respiratory variables that reveal the existence of bronchospasm. Results: The frequency of respiratory symptoms noted among motorcycle taxi drivers is higher than that recorded among members of the control group. We observed that motorcycle drivers at rest and after physical effort have

Each year, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) conducts random drug testing on commercial drivers, including semi-truck drivers, to promote safety on national roadways and to take drugged drivers off the road. In 2012, 287 drugged bus and truck drivers were taken off the road and 128 trucking companies were sanctioned as a result of the random drug testing.. Federal regulations require drug testing of truck drivers for marijuana, cocaine / crack, opiates, amphetamines, and phencyclidine (PCP). A positive test for any of these drugs will result in disciplinary action that may include the loss of a commercial drivers license (CDL).. Despite these checks and prohibitions, there are still drugged truck drivers on the road, presenting a hidden danger to others who share the road with them. If you or a family member was injured in a truck accident anywhere in the United States, please contact an Atlanta-based truck driver negligence attorney at Butler Wooten & Peak LLP, or call ...
Both mental workload and inhibitory control have previously been found to relate to road traffic collisions and these factors are also believed to be highly dependent on the prefrontal cortex. Driving simulators create a safe environment in which to manipulate these factors and examine human behaviours. However, the validity of simulators is often called in to question and previous simulator validation research has a number of common methodological issues. As such, there were two main aims of this thesis. The first was to examine the efficacy of functional near infrared spectroscopy in measuring changes in prefrontal cortex activation as a result of mental workload and inhibitory control manipulations in simulated driving scenarios. The second aim was to examine the similarities and differences in driving behaviour, eye movements and prefrontal cortex activation in real and simulated driving environments ...
Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Transport, Tourism and Sport, Timmy Dooley, has called for immediate action to address the fact that motorists are waiting up to 8 weeks for driving licences to be processed.. Deputy Dooley raised the issue in the Dáil yesterday saying it was unacceptable that motorists have to wait so long for their driving licences.. Thousands of people are facing delays of up to 9 weeks for their driving licences, it is totally unacceptable. Some motorists need driving licenses for their jobs; companies that use transport as part of their service need fully qualified and accredited drivers, without a licence these people cannot be employed. People going on holidays cannot rent cars and people living abroad who come home to renew their licenses are leaving the country without their updated licence. This is reaching crisis proportions and the seriousness of the situation must be recognised. This has happened because the administration of the service has been taken off local ...
Atlanta - Drivers of passenger vehicles have a considerable misunderstanding of the safety performance of commercial motor vehicle operators, results of a recent survey show. An online survey commissioned by Verizon Connect and Wakefield Research asked 1,000 U.S. adults about CMV road safety. In addition, researchers analyzed data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Findings reveal that 83% of the respondents believe they are safer behind the wheel than commercial drivers. That contrasts with the data, which, . . .

Motor vehicle crashes involving impaired driving are a significant public health problem in the U.S. In 1994, there were an estimated 16,900 fatalities in alcohol-related crashes, which is the lowest number in many years (NHTSA, 1995). However, it still represents an average of one alcohol-related fatality every 30 minutes. In addition, an estimated 1.2 million people are injured annually in alcohol-related crashes and the burden of these crashes on society is over $46 billion in direct costs alone (Miller and Blincoe, 1994). Almost 2 in every 5 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related crash at some time in their lives (NHTSA, 1994) Substantial progress has been made, however, since 1982. In that year, 57% of the 43,945 traffic fatalities were estimated to be alcohol-related (i.e. a driver or pedestrian/bicyclist had a positive blood alcohol concentration (BAC)). This translated to 25,170 alcohol-related traffic deaths. In 1994, the 16,900 alcohol-related traffic deaths represented 42% ...
West Mercia Police are appealing for information after a taxi driver was assaulted in Telford. The attack happened around 3.30am on Sunday 5 July in Sorbus Avenue in Hadley.

Concern over older driver high traffic fatality rates has resulted in an effort to identify risk factors and to develop methods of assessment. This study examines two attention-related tasks, Useful Field of View (UFOV) and Change Blindness (CB), in relation to vision and cognitive test batteries and driving performance measures collected using a simulator and an instrumented vehicle. Eight older adults with Alzheimers disease and nine comparison subjects between 64 and 81 participated. Factor analysis results indicate that UFOV and CB relate to different factors. While UFOV relates to memory, decision-making, attention, and visual spatial ability, CB relates to vision and attention. The type of images used on a CB task influence how the task relates to driving performance measures. Researchers should be thoughtful when selecting images to include in CB tasks to maximize insight into real-world driving
Young novice drivers have crash rates higher than any other age group. To address this problem, graduated driver licensing (GDL) laws have been implemented in the United States to require an extended learner permit phase, and create night time driving or passenger restrictions for adolescent drivers. GDL allows adolescents to gain experience driving under low-risk conditions with the aim of reducing crashes. The restricted driving might increase riding with parents or on buses, which might be safer, or walking or biking, which might be more dangerous. We examined whether GDL increases non-driver travels, and whether it reduces total travels combining drivers and non-drivers. We used data from the US National Household Travel Survey for the years 1995-1996, 2001-2002, and 2008-2009 to estimate the adjusted ratio for the number of trips and trip kilometers made by persons exposed to a GDL law, compared with those not exposed. Adolescents aged 16 years had fewer trips and kilometers as drivers when exposed
The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of psychoactive drug and alcohol use among general drivers and predictors of the drug use in Thailand. One thousand six hundred and thirty-five motor vehicle drivers were randomly selected from five geographical regions of Thailand between December 2005 and May 2006. The prevalence of psychoactive drugs was determined using urine tests by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). Among 1635 drivers, 5.5% were tested positive for breath alcohol with 2% having a level exceeding the legal limit (>50 mg%). Psychoactive drug was presented in 158 (9.7%) urine samples for drug analysis. The top 3 most frequently detected licit drugs were antihistamines (2.0%), sedative cough suppressant (0.7%) and benzodiazepines (0.2%). Illicit drugs detected included amphetamine (1.8%), cannabis (1.1%), mitragynine (Kratom) (0.9%) and morphine (0.1%). Only type of driver (commercial/non-commercial) was a significant predictor with psychoactive drug use. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Chasing the silver bullet: measuring driver fatigue using simple and complex tasks. AU - Baulk, Stuart. AU - Biggs, Sarah. AU - Reid, Kathryn. AU - van den Heuvel, Cameron. AU - Dawson, Drew. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Driver fatigue remains a significant cause of motor-vehicle accidents worldwide. New technologies are increasingly utilised to improve road safety, but there are no effective on-road measures for fatigue. While simulated driving tasks are sensitive, and simple performance tasks have been used in industrial fatigue management systems (FMS) to quantify risk, little is known about the relationship between such measures. Establishing a simple, on-road measure of fatigue, as a fitness-to-drive tool, is an important issue for road safety and accident prevention, particularly as many fatigue related accidents are preventable. This study aimed to measure fatigue-related performance decrements using a simple task (reaction time - RT) and a complex task (driving simulation), ...
Site offers information on age-related health changes, safety tips and driving adjustments. Bethesda, Maryland--(ENEWSPF)--August 21, 2012. The National Institutes of Health today unveiled a new online resource for older drivers and families seeking information on an often sensitive topic: Is it still safe to drive? Developed by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at NIH and the U.S. Department of Transportations National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Older Drivers topic offers up-to-date information on how aging may affect driving, including physical changes, safety issues and ways older drivers can cope when driving skills change. The new topic is available at http://nihseniorhealth.gov/olderdrivers/howagingaffectsdriving/01.html.. Driving is a complex task, requiring good vision and hearing, accurate speed-distance judgments and quick reaction times, among other skills, says NIA director Richard J. Hodes, M.D. Age-related changes affecting some of these skills can ...

These observations have been held by the courts as indicia of intoxication. But in addition to the above, the officer will likely utilize the SFST to aid his probable cause determination. The SFST is a series of standardized psychophysical and coordination tests that were developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to determine driving while impaired detection guidelines. The SFST was created to show indications of intoxication and impairment above .10% BAC. But the reliability of the SFST has been challenged.. There are basically three (3) standardized tests utilized in NJ, along with what many refer to as a pretest.. Pretest - reciting of the alphabet or counting. This test is not a recognized test under the SFST standards but has been utilized by police officers since it is familiar and convenient. It is convenient because it does not necessarily require that the driver exist the motor vehicle. The reliability of this test as an indicator of intoxication has, however, been ...
My turn came and things went well for about the first 30 seconds. In the middle of parallel parking, the officer asked why I was taking my road test in Newark instead of Wayne where I took my written test. I told him I had taken my written test in Newark and was told to take my road test in Newark. He didnt believe me and argued with me during the entire test, insisting I was lying to him as the person who signed my permit worked in Wayne, not Newark. When we reached the end of the course, he told me to stay in the car while he got out and stomped over to the guy from the driving school demanding to know what the deal was. New guy didnt have a clue so he couldnt confirm my story. Of course, other officers noticed something going on and joined the fun. Now I had a group to stare and point at me while they discussed the lie. Eventually, the guy who gave me the test went into their booth and started making phone calls. Outcome was he discovered I was telling the truth. - someone from Newark had ...
I can still remember, having worked hands-on with both novice as well as experienced West Virginia (WV) low vision driver candidates since 1985, the unexpected scenario that was discovered by our in-state licensing officials, approximately a year after visual re-testing at license renewal became law (2008) and was implemented (2009). Note, this was the first time in this states history (starting January 2009) that mandatory visual re-testing for drivers of any age was required for continued driving privileges.. By January 2010, state licensing officials, via monitoring the number of completed vision re-examination reports submitted by eye care specialists, after such low vision drivers failed mandatory vision re-screening tests for driver re-licensure, began discovering the existence of several hundred of these drivers, now identified as possessing known levels of mild to moderate levels of central vision loss, still operating motor vehicles on the roads of West Virginia.. The irony, on close ...
