There is a lot of fac­tors ­affecting the ­traffic ­safety. ­Among ­these the ­behavior of ­traffic par­tic­i­pants, espe­cially ­that of ­vehicle ­drivers, is cru­cial in ­traffic ­safety. The influ­ence of path­o­log­ical ­states as ­spinal ­cord ­injury, trau­matic ­brain ­injury, periph­eral ­nerve ­injury, ­stroke, cere­bral ­tumors, med­i­ca­tions, ­sleep dep­ri­va­tion, degen­er­a­tive neu­ro­log­ical dis­ease and age are dis­cussed. The prob­lems ­arising ­from med­ical con­fi­den­tiality and ­driving per­for­mance of the ­patient are dis­cussed.
