The Association of Frailty With Driving Habits Among Older Adults
The AAA LongROAD study is a multisite prospective cohort study of 2,990 drivers recruited from five study sites: Ann Arbor, Michigan; Baltimore, Maryland; Cooperstown, New York; Denver, Colorado; and San Diego, California. Inclusion in the study required participants to be between 65 and 79 years of age, hold a valid driver’s license and drive at least once a week. Details on the study methods are outlined elsewhere (Li et al., 2017).
The analyses of the present study were conducted using baseline demographics and frailty data collected through questionnaires and in-person functional assessments, and up to almost three years of objective driving behavior data collected by in-vehicle devices.
