Driving
My aunt and uncle met with my grandparents earlier this week to tell them that they should give up driving.

My grandparents said no.

I am not surprised by this. My best friend's grandmother, who is 93 with cataract ridden eyes, was able to get her license renewed. Thankfully she also has a daughter who lives a mile and a half away, who stole her car keys.

I think you can report people/'elders' anonymously to the DVM that they may not be safe to drive. You can mention medical conditions that may interfere with safe ability to drive, ie vision, limited neck motion, anything that would slow down reaction times. (are they in my 'hood?)

I'm letting my brother handle this one.
