The purpose of this exploratory research was to assess three stakeholders’ perceptions of the locus of responsibility for driving cessation and identify the criteria that should be included in that decision. The stakeholder groups studied were law enforcement officers, physicians, and the general public age 50 years and older. Defining areas of agreement and disagreement across stakeholders will be valuable for informing policy makers who may be considering statewide or national initiatives. Findings will also be useful for public information and training.


Selected findings from this study were presented at the 53rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Gerontological Society of America, November, 2000, Washington, DC and at the 2001 Joint Conference of the American Society on Aging and the National Council on the Aging, March, 2001, New Orleans, LA.
