Welcome to the Fit to Drive (F2D) website.
Today we see driving, whether at work or for personal use as an essential element of our day to day lives. It is easy to forget that driving a motor vehicle is a very complex activity. Our road infrastructures are built to protect us. But our ability to drive competently comes down to our capability to function efficiently both physically and mentally.
Driving requires the complex application of physical, cognitive and psychosocial abilities in a constantly demanding and fluid road and traffic environment. Any decrease of ability in any one, or combination of these areas – because of ageing, medical condition (physical or mental), impairment either through substance abuse or state of mind, can have a serious effect on a persons’ driving ability.
Determining and promoting driver awareness of fitness to drive should be an important element of any road safety programme. These web pages are designed to assist you in understanding and raising awareness of fitness to drive.
