The cardiovascular burden of diabetes, especially in combination with smoking, needs to be addressed consistently and comprehensively.

While, diabetes usually has no impact on an individual's ability to do a particular job, there has been a considerable debate as to whether diabetics are able drivers and eligible for a driver's licence.

Some experts with interest in road safety including motor vehicle administrators, pedestrians, drivers, other road users, and employers, consider all diabetics unsafe for driving. In fact, it has been seen that majority of diabetics operate motor vehicles without creating any meaningful risk of injury to themselves or others.

The main factors in diabetics associated with unsafe driving are hypoglycemia and visual impairment due to retinopathy or cataract formation.
