How do physicians presently decide when someone should stop driving? What training do doctor‘s have to assess the ability to drive of the elderly?

This is not well known. Despite the fact that they are legally mandated to report patients who have medical problems that may affect driving, few physicians receive training specific to the assessment of driving safety. The medical history and physical examination were developed to detect disease not to evaluate driving safety. Physicians have never been given good office-based tools to assess driving safety. As a result, people who are medically and functionally unfit to drive remain on the road while other drivers may have their licenses unfairly or prematurely revoked. This lack of tools and training and the resultant unfair and dangerous situation clearly highlights the pressing / urgent need for precisely the type of research Candrive is undertaking.
