Abstract Objective This study examined the relationship between restraint design features and comfort, posture and seat belt position of children in booster seats during a driving trial. The relationship between comfort and errors introduced by a child throughout a trip were also explored. Method Fifteen children were recruited in this study. Due to technical issues affecting video capture of three participants, the comfort, belt fit, errors and posture of twelve Australian children aged 4–8 yea...

Abstract Older drivers’ self-awareness of driving ability can prompt self-regulatory behaviors and modifications of their everyday driving performance. To date, studies have yet to examine how older drivers’ self-awareness of changes in driving ability over time or identify the characteristics of those who can accurately monitor such changes. 64 older drivers (Age: Mean = 80.0 years, SD = 5.4; male: 70 %) were recruited and categorized into four groups based on the correspondence of changes in t...

Abstract Objective This exploratory study examined the concept of psychological resilience and self-reported measures of driving comfort, abilities, and self-regulatory driving behavior in adults aged 75 years and older (Male: 69.9%; Mean age = 81.6 years, SD = 3.3, Range = 76.0–90.0). As resilience is associated with adaptive coping skills, it was anticipated that older drivers with higher resilience scores would be more likely to exhibit self-regulatory driving behavior. Method Participants fr...

Abstract Introduction This study systematically reviewed the literature on key issues relating to the safety benefits of older drivers attending an in-person licence renewal. This included identifying: 1) screening tools that are suitable for inclusion in a populationbased in-person licence renewal process for drivers aged 75 years and older which: a) can be administered by non-health professionals (or via a computer terminal/smart device), and b) are compatible with Australian fitness to drive ...

Abstract This study compared older drivers’ driving patterns during a naturalistic on-road driving task (i.e., eDOS driving task) with their real-world driving from the preceding four-month period. Two hundred and eight participants (Male: 68.8%; Mean age = 81.5 years, SD = 3.3 years) completed the eDOS driving task in their own vehicle which commenced from their home and followed a self-selected route. Participants’ driving patterns were collected via an in-car recording device that was install...

Abstract Introduction Distraction is an emerging risk factor for cycling safety. Research from Europe, the United States and Japan indicate that the use of electronic devices is prevalent among cyclists in these countries. However, there is little known about the prevalence of Australian cyclists’ engagement in potentially distracting tasks and in non-technology based tasks in particular. This study examined the prevalence of secondary task engagement among Australian cyclists to determine if ch...

Most older adults perceive themselves as good drivers; however, their perception may not be accurate, and could negatively affect their driving safety. This study examined the accuracy of older drivers' self-awareness of driving ability in their everyday driving environment by determining the concordance between the perceived (assessed by the Perceived Driving Ability [PDA] questionnaire) and actual (assessed by electronic Driving Observation Schedule [eDOS]) driving performance. One hundred and...

Abstract There is convincing evidence to suggest that older truck drivers are a highly valued cohort in the transportation industry. Thus, ensuring the safety, health and wellbeing of this workforce should be a priority so that transportation industry employers can develop strategies to keep them driving for as long as they are safe on the road. As a first step in achieving this goal, the aim of this study was to better understand the key factors associated with managing the safety, health and w...
