- making slow decisions regarding traffic signals or confusing the gas pedal with the brake pedal
- driving at a dangerously slow speeds
- reacting with anger or confusion while driving
These are just a few areas to consider when addressing whether or not a parent or loved one should no longer be driving for safety concern.
