Father and Driving
My father will be 84 this year and is talking about buying a new car.
He is in good health, mentally and physically. Vision is great, hearing is so-so (no hearing aid, but loud TV). I believe the only meds he takes is for high blood pressure.
He drives everyday (not far though) -- just errands. In the winter he won't go out if he feels the roads are bad.
He has never had an accident or even a fender bender.
My DH keeps saying he has no business buying a new car at his age and exactly how long does he plan on driving?? I guess what I am asking is what do you look for as far as deciding if someone shouldn't drive anymore?
