Abstract

The number of older drivers with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is increasing. This research examined self-regulation practices over one-year and plans to cease driving in older drivers with MCI. In addition, an in-vehicle monitoring device was used to assess naturalistic driving exposure, patterns, safety critical events and speeding. It was found that drivers with MCI may be able to self-regulate their driving accordingly and the cognitive impairment associated with MCI may not be severe enough to impact driving. Older drivers with MCI may be able to drive safely in the early stages of cognitive decline.
