Last week’s column focused on when older drivers have to give up driving, and to be honest, it was a topic I was uncomfortable diving into. My parents haven’t turned 60 yet, and the giving advice on how to approach the topic with an older loved one was outside my comfort zone.
Not everyone appreciated my effort. One reader suggested I was putting seniors in a difficult spot by singling them out. Living without a car can be devastating in a mobile society, and he asked me what about all the young drunk, drugged or just unsafe drivers out there?
