Abstract [sv]

The present study compared the driving behaviour of older (67+) drivers who

either drove

throughout the year or only during the summer season. 41 older subjects drove

in VTI:s simulator

in both winter and summer conditions, partly combining the driving task with

a secondary task of

visual detection. It was hypothesised that the groups would differ as to

their driving behaviour and

that any differences would be more pronounced during winter conditions.

While the groups did

differ with respect to stress experienced in traffic (more for those driving

in summer only) and to

cognitive status (only in males, lower for those driving in summer only),

there were practically no

differences in their driving behaviour. The conclusion is that the

strategic limitation of driving

exposure either had not affected their driving behaviour or that the

differences were too subtle to

be detected in a simulated driving situation.
