INTRODUCTION: Many countries restrict people with diabetes from driving. These restrictions are based on the assumption that drivers with diabetes are prone to road accidents more than the general population. There are factors that can affect the driving ability of people with diabetes that are related to the immediate effects of the disease such as hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia or disease complications such as retinopathy or neuropathy. Restrictions on driving of people with diabetes have implications both on the patients and the society. In this review we will examine the data available in literature on the relationship between diabetes and involvement in road accidents.
