Analysis of the Economic Impact of Medical and Optometric Driving Standards on Costs Incured by Trucking Firms and on the Social Costs of Traffic Accidents
AbstractRecent studies do not agree on the possible relationship between medical conditions and traffic safety; most of them do not control for exposure factors. In this study, we estimate the effect of different medical conditions (namely diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary disease and monocular vision) on the distribution of accidents of truck drivers. Our data and our model permit the simultaneous control for age, medical conditions and other characteristics of the truck drivers; exposure factors measured by hours, kilometers, and qualitative factors; and of the circumstances surrounding accidents described in police reports.
