Checking in on my mother’s driving

If I could ride along with my mother to observe her driving, I would do it, but unfortunately I live in a different state and visit only a few times each year. How can I check in on her driving?


You could make it a priority to ride along with her during visits, and you might also consider asking a sibling or other relative to ride with her, if one lives nearby. The goal is to collect information to help guide your conversation about your mother’s driving, and nothing more.
