A driver's capacity to act safely in traffic is a sum of many factors, one of which is driving health.
A person's functional ability varies naturally due to common issues such as the time of day, i.e. the time the person is in traffic, whether he or she is tired or alert, or the person's focus on driving.
Different symptoms, illnesses and injuries may also affect the driver's driving capacity. If you have some symptom, medication, illness or injury and would like more information on the impact of this on your driving capacity, do not hesitate to address the issue with a physician. People encounter different situations: many have experienced falling ill, an injury or a chronic disease. The most important thing is for you to assess whether you are fit to drive before driving.
