Abstract
Osobe starije životne dobi su posebno ugrožena skupina vozača. Razlog je degradacija psihofizičkih sposobnosti uzrokovana procesom starenja i djelovanjem određenih bolesti i poremećaja zdravlja koji su karakteristični za stariju životnu dob. Stoga je bilo potrebno utvrditi psihofizičke osobine, bolesti i poremećaje zdravlja koji stvaraju probleme vozačima starije životne dobi pri upravljanju vozilom. Nadalje, analizira se broj prometnih nesreća koje izazivaju stariji vozači i temeljem toga određuje se njihova rizičnost u prometu. Na bazi statističkih podataka za razdoblje od 2012. do 2014. utvrđeno je da vozači starije životne dobi čine svega 9 do 10,3% vozačke populacije, da su 2012. godine izazvali 7,6% prometnih nesreća, 2013. godine 8,2% prometnih nesreća a 2014. godine 8,9% prometnih nesreća. Vozači stariji od 65 godina u odnosu na druge dobne skupine izazivaju 8 do 9,5% prometnih nesreća. Na temelju toga zaključuje se da vozači stariji od 65 godina nisu rizična dobna skupina u prometu nego da postoje rizičnije dobne skupine.

Seniors are particularly vulnerable group of drivers. The reason for is degradation of mental and physical abilities caused by the aging process and the action of certain diseases and health disorders that are typical of old age. Therefore, it was necessary to determine the psychophysical characteristics, diseases and health disorders that create problems to elderly drivers when driving. Furthermore, analysis of the number of traffic accidents caused by elderly drivers and based on that determined their risk in traffic. On the basis of statistical data for the period from 2012 to 2014 it was found that elderly drivers accounted for only 9 to 10.3% of the driving population, that in 2012 they caused 7.6% of traffic accidents, in 2013 8.2% traffic accidents and in 2014 8.9% of traffic accidents. Drivers older than 65 years compared to other age groups, are causing 8 to 9.5% of traffic accidents. On this basis, it is concluded that drivers over 65 years are not risk age group in traffic but there are riskier age groups.
