Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This study determined the predictive validity of the total number of errors (i.e., adjustment to stimuli errors and gap-acceptance errors) made in either residential, suburban, city, or highway environments on drivers with MS failing (versus passing) the University of Western Ontario on-road assessment. Study findings indicate that quantifying the total number of errors made in suburban and city environments may help determine failing versus passing outcomes for drivers with MS.
