My dad is 87 years old and although he seems to be a fine driver, I would prefer that he limit his driving. How can I convince him to cut back, so we don’t tempt fate with him hurting himself or someone else?
If you think your dad is a safe driver, rethink encouraging him to stop or cut back. Older age should never be used as cause to stop driving. Research has shown that driving cessation can lead to social isolation, depression and other health-related issues. Consider talking to your dad about getting a comprehensive driving assessment, which may help give you peace of mind and give him greater confidence while behind the wheel.
