Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CONTEXT: The use of alcohol during nighttime driving may affect recovery from glare leading to increased traffic accidents.
OBJECTIVE: To compare the glare recovery time in alcoholic versus non-alcoholic drivers.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Alcoholic (n = 25) and non-alcoholic drivers (n = 25) were subjected to glare recovery test and they also filled a questionnaire about the nighttime driving.
RESULTS: The glare recovery time got prolonged in alcoholic drivers and they also complained of more problems during nighttime driving as compared to non-alcoholic drivers.
CONCLUSIONS: The use of alcohol delays recovery from glare during nighttime driving. This can have considerable implications for developing countries in improving regulations for driving licensing.
