We are currently conducting research to examine seniors' perceptions around driving cessation, and to assess how such perceptions are influenced by ethnicity. As such, this work seeks to better understand why and how perceptions relating to driving cessation differ between older ethnic groups. This research seeks to highlight and provide policy recommendations, to both policy makers and transportation authorities, which may better address the transportation needs of seniors. Participants must be 70 years and older and currently licensed and driving, from the Asian, South Asian and Caucasian senior community, and residing in the Greater Vancouver Area. This research seeks to provide policy recommendations, to both policy makers and transportation authorities, which may better address the transportation needs of seniors. This study is a part of a graduate thesis requirement for the School of Community and Regional Planning, University of British Columbia.   If you are a senior (70 years and older), are currently licensed and driving we want to hear from you. In participating, you engage in an on-on-one interview discussing your perceptions around driving cessation.          490            Seniors’ Perceptions around Driving Cessation: An Ethnic Perspective  Are you interested in participating in a research project on Seniors’ Perceptions on Driving Cessation?
