Врачи каких специальностей наиболее чаще нарушают скоростной режим на дорогах?

В наблюдательное исследование, опубликованное в British Medical Journal, были включены случаи превышение скорости более чем на 20 миль/час (32 км\час) врачами-водителями, в том числе на автомобилях класса люкс.

Из 19 639 водителей, получивших штраф за превышение скорости в течение 2004 - 2017 годов во Флориде (США), 5372 оказались врачами различных специальностей. Всего врачи во Флориде за время наблюдения получили 14 560 штрафов за различные нарушения на дорогах.

Доля водителей-врачей и неврачей, превысивших скорость, была одинаковой (26,4% против 26,8% соответственно). Среди водителей-врачей больше всех штрафов получили психиатры. Меньше всех - анестезиологи. Среди врачей-водителей на автомобилях класса люкс наибольшее число штрафов за нарушение скоростного режима получили кардиологи, а наименьшее - реаниматологи, семейные врачи и педиатры. Количество выданных сотрудниками полиции предупреждений не имело различий между врачами-водителями разных специальностей, а также между водителями-врачами и водителями-неврачами.

Основной вывод, который можно сделать из данного исследования: доктора, будьте внимательны на дорогах. Если кому-то и простится, то все наши нарушения изучат со всех сторон и обязательно сравнят с населением в целом...

The need for speed: observational study of physician driving behaviors.

Zimerman A et al

OBJECTIVE:

To determine whether fast driving, luxury car ownership, and leniency by police officers differ across medical specialties.

DESIGN:

Observational study.

SETTING:

Florida, USA.

PARTICIPANTS:

5372 physicians and a sample of 19 639 non-physicians issued a ticket for speeding during 2004-17.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES:

Observed rates of extreme speeding (defined as driving >20 mph above the speed limit), luxury car ownership, and leniency of the speeding ticket by police officers, by physician specialty, after adjustment for age and sex.

RESULTS:

The sample included 5372 physicians who received 14 560 speeding tickets. The proportion of drivers who were reported driving at speeds greater than 20 mph was similar between physicians and a sample of 19 639 non-physicians who received a ticket for speeding (26.4% v 26.8% of tickets, respectively). Among physicians who received a ticket, psychiatrists were most likely to be fined for extreme speeding (adjusted odds ratio of psychiatry compared with baseline specialty of anesthesia 1.51, 95% confidence interval 1.07 to 2.14). Among drivers who received a ticket, luxury car ownership was most common among cardiologists (adjusted proportion of ticketed cardiologists who owned a luxury car 40.9%, 95% confidence interval 35.9% to 45.9%) and least common among physicians in emergency medicine, family practice, pediatrics, general surgery, and psychiatry (eg, adjusted proportion of luxury car ownership among family practice physicians 20.6%, 95% confidence interval 18.2% to 23.0%). Speed discounting, a marker of leniency by police officers in which ticketed speed is recorded at just below the threshold at which a larger fine would otherwise be imposed, was common, but rates did not differ by specialty and did not differ between physicians and a sample of non-physicians.

CONCLUSIONS:

Rates of extreme speeding were highest among psychiatrists who received a ticket, whereas cardiologists were the most likely to be driving a luxury car when ticketed. Leniency by police officers was similar across specialties and between physicians and non-physicians.
