Examination of heart failure as a predictor of driving cessation
The objective of these analyses is to examine HF as an independent predictor of driving cessation across three years among a cohort of older drivers in the United States. Analyses included 850 older adults who completed sensory, cognitive, and physical measures at baseline and mobility and health measures at a three-year follow-up. Cox regression was used to examine the effects of HF, stroke, vision, cognition, and physical function as predictors of incident driving cessation over three years. Participants with HF were over three times more likely to cease driving, HR = 3.19, 95% CI [1.27, 8.02], p = .014. However, HF was ...

A novel approach to study the health consequences of road crashes
Conclusions The methodology described in this paper provides information about the full spectrum of road crashes and enables novel analyses of unexplored research questions. Based on the data collected so far and the example analysis presented in the paper, recommendations have been made about future data collection. The proposed data collection methodology enables characterisation of crash factors that are associated with long-term health consequences. The ability to timely identify those at risk provides important opportunities for early intervention to reduce long-term health outcomes also from low severity crashes. (So...

Skate and die? The safety performance of skateboard travel: A look at injury data, fatality data, and rider behavior
Conclusions Skateboard travelers, like pedestrians and bicyclists, are “vulnerable users” of the transportation system, with fatality rates per distance traveled several times greater than motor vehicle occupants, and with motor vehicle collisions a common factor. Behaviorally, skateboarders roll along at speeds slightly slower than bicyclists. Thus, skateboarding safety issues mirror bicycle safety issues, with some potential for skateboarder-pedestrian conflicts due to speed differentials, and skateboarder injury and fatality risk from exposure to motor vehicles.

The role of social networks in supporting the travel needs of people after serious traumatic injury: A nested qualitative study
This study explores the importance of social networks and transport for people who had experienced a traumatic injury three years earlier. Many participants found travelling difficult because of pain, discomfort, fatigue and mobility impairments caused by their injuries which led them to be highly dependent on being a passenger in cars driven by others, or on public transport and taxis, to meet their travels needs. After injury, participants’ needs to travel were often high because they had to attend regular medical and physiotherapy appointments. They also needed to be able to travel to reengage with social activiti...
