Hi, Your best bet would be to work with your fathers medical provider to begin the conversation about driving cessation. These are difficult conversations, and sometimes the information is more well-received when it comes from a doctor versus a family member. His doctor may recommend a driving evaluation, and almost every state has a process for reporting a potentially unsafe driver to its licensing office or department of motor vehicles. Law enforcement officers and physicians represent the majority of individuals submitting reports, although concerned citizens also can do so.
