Predictors of automobile crashes and moving violations among elderly drivers.
To identify the factors associated with automobile crashes, moving violations, and being stopped by police in a cohort of elderly drivers.
Prospective cohort study.
All 283 persons who drove between 1990 and 1991, selected from a representative cohort of community-living persons aged 72 years and older in New Haven, Connecticut.
Data on independent variables in five domains (demographic, health, psychosocial, activity, and physical performance) were collected in structured interviews before events occurred.
The outcome measure was the self-report of involvement in automobile crashes, moving violations, or being stopped by police in a 1-year period.
