Abstract

Sudden onset of signs and symptoms of disease while driving can cause motor vehicle accidents. To minimize the fatalities or injuries of persons due to road traffic accidents, the health of drivers must be promoted. The diseases of drivers have to be controlled adequately. The drivers prefer to avoid taking medicines which may disturb driving ability. When the drivers are aware of any health problem while driving, they should voluntary stop the vehicle to prevent a major attack and subsequent accidents. Establishing effective procedures for reporting sudden medical symptoms among drivers is needed in the companies. Further attention might be needed to protect driver’s health.
