I realize emphasizing the importance of this subject won't go over well with some of you. However, I am hoping that our community as a whole is responsible enough to leave personal desires & convenience behind & agree that some symptoms of PD interfere with the ability to drive safely. For example, slowed thinking &/or movement, weak or numb limbs, cramping/dystonia, slow reaction time, chronic fatigue/nodding off at the wheel, & cognitive disorders with features such as confusion and poor concentration, eye-hand coordination, & spatial perception.
It's commonly known that giving up driving is a huge loss of convenience & independence. But is that more important than admitting to yourself that because of your symptom(s), you are a greater hazard on the road than you'd be without them? And if that is true, the responsible thing is to ensure you never cause a tragedy by getting yourself off the road - by giving up driving.
I'm sure some of you have already quit driving as I have. But I also know there are way too many accidents and accidents waiting to happen due to impaired drivers who manage to get & keep a drivers' licenses. I wish these people would take the time to really think it through & realize the damage that could be caused by their insistence on driving despite decreased ability to drive safely.
So what do you think?
