Driving Safety in Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's disease, Driving simulator, Collision
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
In this study, 39 patients with PD and 25 control subjects without neurologic disease completed testing in a driving simulator. PD patients had more total collisions on the driving simulator than control subjects (t = −3.7, p < 0.01). In PD patients, collisions were associated with Hoehn and Yahr stage (χ2 = 12.4, p = 0.006) and correlated with Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale score (r = 0.5, p < 0.01).
