For months I knew that my dad should not be driving. Even though he was only 74 years old, diabetes had damaged his eyesight and his reaction time was slow. He would pick up his grandchildren to take them for ice-cream and I would watch her pull out of the driveway with fear and a huge sense of anxiety. One warm sunny day, he stopped to pick up the children to go swimming in his backyard pool. I had decided to run to the store and I pulled out of the neighborhood only to see my father driving on the sidewalk!! You can imagine how horrified I was!! Fortunately no one was hurt. Taking the keys to the car become very easy. But--it could have been a disaster!! So, take the keys away at the first sign of trouble. You will have a loved one a lot longer.
