The Effects of Age and Vision Impairment on Scanning and Detection at Intersections


Intersections are challenging for drivers with normal vision, let alone drivers with impaired vision. About 25% of fatal accidents occur at intersections and older drivers are more likely to be involved than middle-aged drivers. Using a driving simulator, we have been evaluating the effects of age and vision impairment on scanning and detection at intersections to determine the role of inadequate head scanning in detection failures.
