I work as a caregiver for seniors

Question:
I work as a caregiver for seniors, and I am concerned about the driving safety of some of my clients. What is the responsible thing to do here? Can state police help discreetly?

Answer:
You might feel guilty or awkward, but reporting a potentially unsafe driver is the single most responsible action you can take. Keep in mind that reporting someone does not immediately revoke their license. Rather, it gives your state’s licensing authority the opportunity to evaluate the individual’s driving in the context of his or her medical health.

Understandably, many people prefer to report potentially unsafe drivers anonymously. Each state has different methods of reporting drivers for medical review, and you can find your state’s method here.
