Abstract: This document represents the findings of the research dedicated to investigation of effect of social pressure on driving ability of older drivers, completed by Veronika Rudnenko, the 2nd Master student of Transportation Sciences (Traffic Safety), under the supervision of dra. Ariane Cuenen. The research is triggered by several reasons. First, it is the growth of the population of older drivers. It is not only the question of amount of active older drivers, but also the fact that they continue driving for longer period of time than before. Second reason is the absence of comprehensive scientific researches that investigate the response of older drivers to the social pressure on the road. Therefore, the research was initiated in order to provide better understanding of this problem. In general, the whole process is divided in two parts, which are theoretical (literature review) and practical (data analysis). Both of them are finished and results are presented in this paper.
