Title: Driving is a risky business!
Presenter: Laura Bonnett
Date: Wednesday, 11 October 2017
Time: 5.30-6.30 pm
Summary: In the UK, the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) adopt a risk based approach to determine who can obtain a driving license either as a new driver, or following an incapacitating medical event such as an epileptic seizure. Together, we will deliberate what we consider to be an acceptable level of risk of an accident as a new driver. We will then debate whether this level of risk should also apply to people with underlying medical conditions such as epilepsy. We will finally discuss the implications of our decisions for the drivers, but also for the rest of the population.
