I had 2 pt's in a room once and we got to talking about how they knew it was time to stop driving (both were in their 80's). One gave up the key's when he nearly ran down a group of people. He realized that he was no-longer fit to drive. He knew it was time.
A scary and sad thought is what if that conversation had not been "nearly ran down a group of people" but had actually done it! That was a very real possibility!
This is a very thought provoking article - especially when you think these people are losing everything at this age - not just a breakdown in their body functions, but also losing their friends and others they care for - to also lose the independance which the automobile has given to us all - It is going to be a sad day for me when it comes
Thanks for sharing this article!
