We recently had a 92 year old man drive his car into a eating establishment injuring 8 people including an infant. I urge those of you with an elderly parent or neighbor who is clearly losing the skill to drive, to speak up in a respectful manner and get them to stop putting themselves and others at risk. I was able to do this with my father when he had gotten very weak from age related leukemia. I told him, "Dad, youve been a good man all your life don't leave this earth by hurting someone unintentionally". He listened, and understood what had to be done. I know it must be hard to lose the freedom that driving one's own car provides, but for many elderly the time comes to face that reality. Frank
