    I feel for the man and his family and I’m sure I’ll be booed for saying this but why the hell is he driving in the first place? He’s a danger to himself and others. What if he got confused, crossed the center line and killed a minivan filled with children? Then we’d be looking to blame the D.O.T. for this. I cared enough about my dad that when he started showing signs of early dementia and confusion the first thing I said was that he can’t drive anymore. He agreed.
