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)

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

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

Abstract: Background: The issues of long working hours and short sleep among professional drivers are increasing worldwide, making it necessary to study their health hazards. Obesity among professional drivers and conductors is becoming an equally challenge now a days. In the present study, we investigated the association between long working hours and short sleep with body mass index (BMI) among male drivers and conductors in the city of Multan, Pakistan.Methods: The cross-sectional sample of 345 participants (197 drivers and 148 conductors) was taken using a convenient sampling technique with the help of a self-administered questionnaire. From the participants, the data were collected about their daily work-ing hours, sleeping hours and working period. Anthropometric measurements (weight and height) of each participant were taken to calculate BMI. Along with descriptive statistics and percentages, Chi-square test was used to examine the association in the full sample and stratified by study ...
A new study finds states that require people convicted of drunk driving to install ignition interlock devices in their vehicles have lower rates of alcohol-related crash deaths compared with states that dont require the devices.
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
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);

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) offer the possibility of helping drivers to fulfill their driving tasks. Automated vehicles are capable of communicating with surrounding vehicles (V2V) and infrastructure (V2I) in order to collect and provide essential information about driving environment. Studies have proved that automated vehicles have a potential to decrease traffic congestion on road networks by reducing the time headway, enhancing the traffic capacity and improving the safety margins in car following. Furthermore, vehicle movement and driver s behavior of conventional vehicles will be affected by the presence of automated vehicles in traffic networks. Despite different encouraging factors, automated driving raises some concerns such as possible loss of situation awareness, overreliance on automation and degrading driving skills in absence of practice. Moreover, coping with complex scenarios, such as merging at ramps and overtaking, in terms of interaction between automated ...

Downloadable! This study estimates the dose-response relationship between Body Mass Index (BMI) and crash risk in commercial motor vehicle operators. Intake data was collected on 744 new truck drivers who were training for their commercial drivers licenses at a school operated by the cooperating trucking firm during the first two-week phase of instruction. Drivers were then followed prospectively on the job using the firms operational data for two years, or until employment separation, whichever came first. Multivariate Poisson regression and Cox proportional hazards models were used to estimate the relationship between crash risk and BMI, controlling for exposure using miles driven, trip segments, and job type. Results from the Poisson regression indicated that the risk ratio (RR) for all crashes was significantly higher for drivers in the obesity Class II and Class III categories: RR= 1.6, confidence interval 1.2-2.1 and RR= 1.49, confidence interval 1.12-1.99, respectively. Similarly, the
The majority of states, including Illinois, require first-time DUI offenders to have a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) installed on their vehicles. Illinois also requires a camera unit on the BAIID to capture the image of the driver as they perform their breath test. On average, approximately 12,000 Illinois individuals are driving with a BAIID device installed on their car or truck. Any first-time DUI offender who wishes to obtain and is eligible for driving relief during the period of statutory summary suspension is required to have a BAIID installed on his/her vehicle. To be eligible for driving relief, the offender must obtain a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP), and a BAIID will be installed on his/her vehicle through the Secretary of States office. An MDDP and installation of a BAIID allow an offender to drive anywhere at any time as long as he/she is driving a vehicle installed with a BAIID. The Secretary of States office monitors the BAIID throughout the duration ...
Residents of Castlewood Drive recently expressed their concerns to Eltham North Councillor Spencer Drury about the number of lorries attempting to negotiate their narrow, steep and winding road. It appears that the lorries travel up Westmount Road to the width restriction by the old Welcome Inn site and then cannot turn round. In order to return to the Rochester Way, the lorries turn up Castlewood Drive, where the fact that there are cars parked on both sides of the road makes it difficult to turn at some of the steeper points.. Spencer said "Resident know all too well the difficulty some lorries have in turning round. I recently saw one lorry where the driver got out of the cab and tried to bounce a parked car out of the way. Each time he tried to reverse the lorry rolled forward, closer and closer to the parked car. Luckily the cars owner appeared and moved it just in time.". Spencer has written to the Council and secured a review of the signage around the Rochester Way and Westmount Road ...
The objective of this study was to identify medical factors associated with injurious crash risk arnong senior drivers. A population-based case-control design was used.

Car accidents involving a teen driver are not uncommon in Missouri and throughout the US. Here are some dangers every teen driver should avoid.
Teenage drivers have the highest crash risk per mile traveled, compared with drivers in other age groups. Young drivers tend to overestimate their driving abilities and underestimate the dangers on the road. Graduated driver licensing (GDL) laws reduce this risk by making sure teens gradually build up driving experience under lower-risk conditions as they mature and develop skills. That means limiting nighttime driving, restricting teen passengers and making sure teens get lots of supervised practice. Graduated licensing has reduced teen crashes 10-30 percent on average.. All 50 states and the District of Columbia have a three-stage GDL system. The United States doesnt have a national GDL law. State lawmakers decide what provisions to adopt and how to enforce them. Institute research has show that states with the strongest laws enjoy bigger reductions in teen driver deaths than states with weak laws. Some states make teens wait a little longer before they get their learner permits and ...
RESULTS: During 2001-2010, 2344 children ,15 years were killed in crashes involving at least 1 alcohol-impaired driver. Of these children, 1515 (65%) were riding with an impaired driver. Annual deaths among children riding with an alcohol-impaired driver decreased by 41% over the decade. Among the 37 states included in the state-level analysis, Texas (272) and California (135) had the most children killed while riding with an impaired driver and South Dakota (0.98) and New Mexico (0.86) had the highest annualized child passenger death rates (per 100 000 children). Most (61%) child passengers of impaired drivers were unrestrained at the time of the crash. One-third of the impaired drivers did not have a valid drivers license. ...

In the United States, Global Road Safety Week events will focus on teen drivers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is excited to take part in this effort and will focus on raising awareness about the important role parents play in keeping their teen drivers safe. In particular, parents can use graduated driver licensing (GDL) systems to guide and support their teens road safety efforts. GDL systems, which vary by state, are designed to help new drivers gain knowledge and experience under low-risk conditions. As drivers progress through learning stages, they are granted additional driving privileges such as driving alone or driving with other young people in the car with them. Research suggests that the most strict and comprehensive GDL programs are associated with 38 percent reductions in death and 40 percent reductions in injury among 16-year-old U.S. drivers. CDC hopes to increase awareness of this impact and help parents of teen drivers to learn more about the GDL ...
It has been decided that three public listening sessions, hosted by the US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), will be conducted to collect public input on the effects of screening, treating, and evaluation of truck drivers and railroaders for OSA.. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a respiratory disorder resulted due to a cessation or reduction in breathing during sleep. According to statistics presented by the FMSCA, nearly 22 million men and women are suffering from OSA that goes undiagnosed or poorly treated. But an undiagnosed OSA condition can have many alarming consequences such as a loss in concentration and focus, deficits in memory and situational awareness.. U.S. Transportation Secretary, Anthony Foxx, stated, "It is imperative for everyones safety that commercial motor vehicle drivers and train operators be fully focused and immediately responsive at all times. DOT strongly encourages comment from the public on how to best respond to this national health and ...

THURSDAY, June 27 (HealthDay News) -- Speeding is a factor in a third of fatal crashes involving teen drivers in the United States, according to a new report.. Speeding played a role in 33 percent (nearly 19,500) of fatal teen driver crashes in 2011, compared with 30 percent in 2000. During that same period, there was a dramatic decline in the total number of fatal teen driver crashes, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report.. "Curbing teen speeding is vital since no other age group has a higher crash risk," report author Susan Ferguson said in a GHSA news release. "Speeding is a common factor in the fatal crashes of teen male and female drivers." "Speeding is more prevalent among teen males, at night and in the presence of other teen passengers," she said. "When three or more teen passengers are in a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old male, almost half of their fatal crashes are speeding-related." Despite its significant role in fatal teen driver crashes, speeding ...

Since April 2013, Bonduelle has been establishing a flow of sea transport between the Renescure factory (via Zeebruges) and the Port of Bilbao in Spain. Around 20% of the supply flow from the factory will travel on the motorways of the sea. The motorways of the sea meet two of the Grenelle Environment Forum priorities. They help relieve road networks, proposing a more environmentally friendly alternative. Moreover, this transfer reduces green house gas emissions. The motorways of the sea stand out from coastal navigation or classic sea links thanks to research into the performance of the transport chain from one end to the other. It involves offering a frequent, regular and structured (set timetable) service, which is both quick and reliable, for an attractive price compared to its road equivalent. At Bonduelle, one lorry per week embarks at the Port of Zeebruges to head to Spain, which saves 960km of road travel, resulting in a 55% reduction of CO2 emissions per lorry. At the same time, with a ...
While there is a relationship between BAC level and driving impairment, the relationship is not likely to be a simple linear one. Therefore, it is not appropriate to assume that 1) if FST performance and BAC are related and 2) if BAC and driving Impairment are related, therefore, 3) FST and driving impairment are related. The relationships among these factors are too complex to assume a simple relationship as NHTSA might like you to conclude. There are comments among NHTSA researchers themselves alluding to this conclusion. In the 1981 NHTSA study, the researchers conclude,"…Individuals vary in alcohol tolerance, and infrequent drinker may be severely impaired at a BAC of 0.05, whereas a heavy drinker may show only minimal Impairment at this level" (p. 19). Dr. Moskowitz, one of the co-authors of both the 1977 and 1981 NHTSA studies, co-authored a later review of research on driving and alcohol, levels and concluded in a presentation at a scientific conference that,"... studies of driving ...
Four major epidemiological study designs are reviewed: cohort, case-control, case-cohort, and case-crossover. In the medical field, these study designs and their analysis methods are commonly used to estimate the effect of exposure to a disease on an outcome (such as death). The formal epidemiological definition of each design in the medical field is here translated into the context of real-world and naturalistic driving safety studies. For example, instead of an outcome of death, the outcome becomes a crash or other safety-relevant event. Instead of exposure to a disease, the exposure becomes a driver activity such as a secondary task (e.g., talking on a cell phone), a driver impairment (e.g., drunk or drugged), or a driver behavior error (e.g., speeding). The effect size measures of the exposure on the outcome include the rate ratio, risk ratio, and odds ratio. Careful selection of a study design and the appropriate analysis method for that study design is vital to obtaining a valid effect ...

Penalties for drunk driving continue to become tougher over the years as the cost of this dangerous behavior rises. Reckless alcohol consumption among young people has also risen markedly, and it has been met with sharp intolerance. There are often lower legal limits for minor drivers and longer drivers license suspensions.. Drunk driving, driving while intoxicated (DWI), or driving under the influence (DUI), is typically determined by the alcohol content found in the drivers blood. Blood alcohol content (BAC) may be determined in two ways: through breath analysis or urinalysis. All but three states have lowered the legal limit of blood alcohol content from 0.10 to 0.08 percent. Also, thirty-four states have passed laws lowering the BAC to 0.02 percent or no amount for drivers under 21. Twelve states have also set a separate limit at 0.04 percent for commercial vehicle drivers.. Penalties for drunk driving are severe in most states. Virtually every state suspends the drivers license on a ...

Many professional drivers take unnecessary - and often illegal - risks when out on the roads, new research has shown.. Data compiled by road safety charity Brake revealed how 31 per cent of all professional drivers admit to having texted while in charge of a moving vehicle, while a further 17 per cent say they have been caught grooming - such as putting on makeup or shaving - when behind the wheel.. Julie Townsend, Brake deputy chief executive, said: "It is appalling so many people who drive in a professional capacity are taking such horrendous and unnecessary risks, doing things we all know are unbelievably dangerous behind the wheel.". She added that professional drivers should be even more acutely aware of the legal ramifications of these dangerous acts, as well as understanding the damage that can be caused by reckless driving.. Brake will be holding a safety seminar for all road users on January 23rd in Birmingham, where it will be showcasing the latest in vehicle safety technologies and ...

Almost half of young drivers have admitted they make or receive phone calls while driving, according to new research.. Two-fifths (42.76%) of motorists aged between 17 and 25 confessed to the offence that carries a fixed penalty notice of £60 and three points on the licence, revealed One Polls survey of 2,900 motorists.. Just over one in 10 young drivers (12.35%) suggested it is not even dangerous to use a phone while behind the wheel, with one in three (33.66%) saying that changing the tracks on an MP3 player does not pose a risk.. The North West region is home to the highest proportion of young risk-takers on the roads, the survey found, with almost one in five (17.82%) stating the belief that it is not dangerous to use a mobile phone while driving.. Responsible young drivers - who pay significantcar insurance premiums - may be looking at the new figures with dismay, although the temptation to use in-car gadgets when driving could be on the increase across all age groups with many new cars ...
Virtual environments are often used to practice potentially hazardous situations which make it difficult to compare the virtual environment with the non-virtual counterpart. It is therefore important to develop effective evaluation methods that are adequate even when they are exclusively used in virtual environments. This study examined whether there was a connection between reported difficulty, change in heart rate and reported presence. Twenty-four participants drove a virtual tractor and performed driving tasks and a mental workload task. The results showed that heart rate increased significantly during the mental workload task, and that average change in HR correlated significantly with reported presence for the half of the participants who reported the highest levels of presence. The findings suggest that mental workload can be used to increase heart rate and that the increase is linked to presence. The relationship between presence and heart rate that was found indicate that it might be ...

The evaluation of Maneuvering Feeling during driving should not only be judged subjectively by the driver but also judged objectively with scientific results. This paper will detail experiments conducted using two types of driving simulators. For the purpose of obtaining the objective evaluation of the drivers feeling under various driving conditions, specific color photographs were taken of the distribution of his face temperature. These were taken momentarily with an infrared camera. His blood pressure and heart rate also continuously measured his physiological responses.The face temperatures of almost all drivers tended to rise while driving. Especially so, when they encountered unexpected changes in the road environment. This was because of the driving task and stress incurred. There is a correlation between the face temperature, the blood pressure and the heart rate. Contrary results of drivers whose temperature lowered during the simulation can be explained as a result of discomfort due ...

To the relief of municipalities, the California Supreme Court ruled yesterday that uninsured motorists injured on dangerous public roads are limited in the amount of damages they can collect from cities and counties. By a 5-to-2 vote, the high court ruled that a motorcyclist severely injured in an accident caused in part by a poorly maintained public road could not recover damages for pain and suffering from the city of Fontana. The decision was the first to expand the reach of Proposition 213, the 1996 voter-approved measure that prevents uninsured motorists from recovering damages for pain and suffering and other types of noneconomic harm. The justices rejected Russell Glen Days argument that the law was intended to prevent uninsured motorists from collecting from other motorists who have insurance and did not cover suits against public entities.

Exhaust emissions behavior from a vehicle under road driving condition is affected by a driving force of a vehicle. It is impossible to measure the driving force by an existing torque meter under this on-road driving condition. This study reports the development and verification of the wheel torque meter which is possible to measure driving force under the on-road driving condition and has enough strength and accuracy. The wheel torque meter developed in this study consists of a torque detector with a strain gauge type torque transducer, a telemeter receiver and a data logger. The strain gauge type torque transducer is equipped between hub and wheel at the drive axle tire, because of the narrow width of this transducer, and it is possible to be placed against vehicle without significant conversion of the vehicle. Because of these characters, this transducer is possible to be used for an on-road driving vehicle ...

Lead author, Dr. Werner Strobel from University Hospital, Switzerland, said: "Our study suggests that commercial drivers are playing down their levels of sleepiness for fear of losing their jobs. Although this is very difficult to prove, both the group of drivers and the group of non-drivers began the study with a similar number of disturbances during the night. You would therefore expect their reports of sleepiness to be similar to begin with, however the drivers estimated their levels of sleepiness as lower than the non-drivers. This pattern continued throughout the course of the study, with drivers reporting lower symptoms, yet receiving less treatment and making more unscheduled visits to the clinic ...

In 2009, 12% of the 16.5 million accidents were from licensed drivers 19 years old and younger. 15% for 20-24 yrs old, 20% for 25-34, 18% for 35-44, 17% for 45-54, 10% for 55 to 64 years old, 5% for 65-74, and 3% for over 75. (Source: National Safety Council) By these statistics it would appear that older drivers (+65) are safer than the rest of the population since they get into the fewest accidents. This is likely the result that older drivers (+65) are more likely to drive less frequently, travel fewer miles, stick to areas that are familar with, drive during off-peak or daytime hours only, or dont renew their licenses as they age.. However, if you look at how many miles they travel (fewer than everyone else) they tend to have higher fatality rates per 100 million miles traveled, and are comparable to teen drivers. Teens (16-19) experience fatal crashes at 6 to 9 accidents per 100 million miles, verse 25 to 74 year olds which are at 1 to 2.5 per 100 million miles. (Source: Insurance ...
Drivers are more likely to get behind the wheel drowsy than drunk despite it being just as dangerous, and the worst offenders are those under 30, a QUT study has found.. The research undertaken by QUTs Centre for Accident Research & Road Safety - Queensland (CARRS-Q) will be presented today at the 2015 Australasian Road Safety Conference on the Gold Coast, which runs until October 16.. Road safety researcher Chris Watling said driving sleepy and driving drunk were two risky behaviours linked to a comparable increase in crash risk, yet drivers perceived the dangers of each as vastly different.. "Research shows a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05 per cent has the same effect as being awake for 17 hours, and a BAC of 0.1 per cent is roughly 20 hours, but drivers dont consider the impairment to be the same," Mr Watling said.. "In Queensland 20 per cent of the states fatal crashes were attributed to drink driving and an estimated 15 per cent to fatigued driving, although incidence rates of ...

There were noticeable increases in all three measures of alcohol-related traffic risk - RWID, DWI and DAD - when students reached the legal drinking age of 21," said Arria. "Our findings call into question the assertions of some advocates who claim that lowering the drinking age to 18 would be a useful strategy for reducing harm associated with alcohol consumption. The present findings are consistent with numerous prior studies showing that increased availability of alcohol is associated with a greater level of problems especially underage drinking-and-driving fatal crashes." Both Voas and Arria said these findings support maintaining the minimum legal drinking age at 21. "In fact," said Arria, "lowering the drinking age to 18 would likely result in a surge of alcohol-related traffic problems given that younger students would have even less driving experience.". "The continued growth in the percentages of youths who are reporting dangerous drinking/driving behaviours over the time they are in ...
And listening to hip-hop and heavy metal will make me go out and commit socially unacceptable acts. Its possible that the jammin 95.5 fiasco you cited and road aggression are related. It is also possible that those who rage would do so anyways. I would like to see a real causal connection. Having said that, sure I have been harassed by a few motorists, but not by every motorist.. I have not said that riding a bike is not dangerous, in fact it is very dangerous and all the more reason to look out for yourself; however, if you keep your wits about you and assume that motorists dont see you then you will be all the better off for it. I dont know for a fact that the public at large disrespects cyclists as a group, some disrespect, most dont. I have noticed that most people have rudimentary driving skills at best and that is what causes accidents (car/car and car/bike), not a deep rooted hatred or disrespect for cyclists as a whole or other drivers. You have made a generalization based on the ...

The HSDI Diesel engine contributes substantially to the decrease of fleet fuel consumption thus to the reduction of CO2 emissions. This results in the rising market acceptance which is supported by desirable driving performance as well as greatly improved NVH behavior. In addition to the above mentioned requirements on driving performance, fuel economy and NVH behavior, continuously increasing demands on emissions performance have to be met. From todays view the Diesel particulate trap presents a safe technology to achieve the required reduction of the particle emission of more than 95%. However, according to todays knowledge a further, substantial NOx engine-out emission reduction for the Diesel engine is counteracts with the other goal of reduced fuel consumption. To comply with current and future emission standards, Diesel engines will require DeNOx technologies ...
While over the counter medications generally have a reputation of being extremely safe, the side effects of each specific drug should always be taken seriously. If someone experiences any of the common side effects of these medications, such as drowsiness, while operating a vehicle, serious consequences could result.. Dr. Ali Mohamadi, a medical officer with the FDA, describes how you can feel the effects of taking these common drugs within hours of consuming them, which can unknowingly impair your driving skills.. You can feel the effects some OTC medicines can have on your driving for a short time after you take them, or their effects can last for several hours, Mohamadi said in a statement. If you have not had enough sleep, taking medicine with a side effect that causes drowsiness can add to the sleepiness and fatigue you may already feel. Being drowsy behind the wheel is dangerous; it can impair your driving skills.. Using OTC drugs carefully ...
On the second beach of Bigeum island, the driver fearlessy floored the pedal down the length of the beach, less than eight feet from the water. The feeling was surreal. We were a little confused, as he started to do donuts in the sand, only to stop the van, and get out. Pressing our faces to the window, we watched as the taxi driver bent over, and picked up a two-foot-long dead fish that had been washed ashore, and attempted to shove it into a closed umbrella. One of the guys in our group caught on to what the taxi driver was trying to achieve, and handed him the plastic bag he was using to protect his camera bag from the weather, and the taxi driver dropped the fish into it, the tail still exposed. And then, he put the fish next to me. The taxi driver picked up a dead fish off the beach, and sat it next to me. In the taxi. That, itself, is extremely strange, however, the feeling of "what the **** is going on?" (I get that feeling a lot here) was heightened by the fact that I have an irrational ...
Note: The federal Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 (49 U.S.C. 2717) requires that all persons subject to commercial drivers license requirements be tested for alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opiates (including heroin) and phencyclidine (PCP). The Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49, Part 382.601 mandates policy and procedures on this topic. Actions taken based on test results may be subject to negotiation; districts should seek legal counsel in this regard.***. The Governing Board desires to take all possible steps to ensure transportation safety for district students and staff. The Superintendent or designee shall establish a drug and alcohol testing program for all school bus drivers and any other employees who hold a commercial drivers license which is necessary to perform duties related to their employment with the district. This program shall be designed to fulfill the requirements of federal law and regulations. Drivers who test positive for alcohol or ...

In 2015, the figures that I have found show that the cost of obesity to the NHS was anywhere from £6-8 billion. Just let that sink in for a moment - 6-8 billion pounds in a year. I totally respect that everyone should have the choice of what they do in life, but heres an analogy from a PT friend of mine. When you take your driving test, you drive how you drive, everyone has their own style, but as long as you drive carefully, youll pass. However, if you have to make someone else suddenly slam on the brakes to avoid a collision due to a reckless move you have made with your car, youll fail your driving test. Its the same with obesity. If youre happy with being obese/morbidly obese, thats fine, but by being obese, youre making others pay. Just look at the amount of tax payers money that is being pumped into the NHS for obesity. The NHS was never setup to deal with this kind of epidemic (I think that word fits...). Yes, people will say "I pay my taxes, so I deserve the treatment I get". ...

I worked two campaigns against Cardinale. He is so vicious that when one of my candidates called him to offer a concession (as was traditional) he told his son, or campaign worker, to tell my guy that he doesnt talk to losers. This guy is a dentist and perennially tries to push bills through the State Legislature which would allow dentists to dispense the prescriptions they fill. I have been in states where they allow that (like California) and many have changed it because the doctors and dentists gouged the patient.

Personally I think this kind of stuff works more like a placebo rather than a magnet for the wearer towards other gay men. The theory is similar to people (including myself) who take those so-called calming remedies to calm themselves down before they sit their driving test. At the end of the day, both driving test and pulling guys are just another psychological game of our self-confidence. However, theres always no harm to fantasising the suppose-to-happen effect of the fragrance, just like the two hot guys in its commercial. Enjoy! ...

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 ...
The demand for cataract surgery is set to increase due to the ageing population of Australia. Cataracts are usually bilateral, but cataract surgery is almost always performed one eye at a time. Previous investigations of the impact of cataract surgery seldom analysed the separate effects of each surgery. Instead, patients who underwent first, second or both eye surgeries were combined in the analyses. In Western Australia, public hospital patients wait substantial periods of time between first and second eye cataract surgeries. For these patients, understanding the separate effects of first eye surgery on driving difficulty, vision-related quality of life and depressive symptoms is of considerable importance for their safety and well-being.This before and after study aimed to gain a better understanding of the impact of first eye cataract surgery on self-reported driving difficulty, vision-related quality of life and depressive symptoms for older drivers. It also aimed to investigate how changes ...

In California, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death and hospitalization among children under age 16. With over 24 million vehicles, and over 170,000 thousand miles of roadway, virtually every one of Californias 8 million young people are routinely exposed to traffic-related injury, disability and death. Motor vehicle occupant injuries are among the top five causes of both death and hospitalization among children under age 16. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that, controlling for driver seat belt use and the childs seating position, child restraints are 71% effective in reducing fatality among infants and 54% effective among children aged one to four in passenger cars.. Motor vehicle-related injuries are preventable, yet motor vehicle crashes remain a leading cause of death and disability for children. In California, 4,579 children age four years and younger were hospitalized as a result of motor vehicle occupant injuries in 1994. The ...
Bioptics, improved something greater than 100 years back, are minor telescopes that are joined above the focal point of one spectacle lens. A slight descending tilt of the head and upward change of the eyes can carry a far off street mark or activity light into view for individuals with vision impedances. When looking through the telescope, a without vision dominion (scotoma) is made owed to the amplification of the telescope. The destitute of vision range is in the shape of a ring surrounding what is perceived through the telescope (consequently the name "ring scotoma"). Case in point, an individual review an activity light with the telescope can see the light, but should not see the surrounding crossing point, with the same eye. Admitting that bioptics were presented as driving supports 50 years in the past and are sanction for heading in 39 states, safeguard has remained a concern, specifically the impact of the ring scotoma on identification of activity risks. In some states this concern ...
