My Elderly Dad is 85 Years Old and Still Driving
by Mary Ellen
My Dad is 85 and is still driving and it worries me so much....to see him barely able to walk and get around yet still driving is causing some very worrisome moments.
He is able to still obtain car insurance (I guess the same insurance instead of some type of senior driver insurance), however I keep hoping his rates will go up enough that he has the incentive to quit driving. Although I guess this could back fire and him just drive without car insurance...
Anyone know of a way to discuss this in a manner that will not make him defensive? He is still VERY independent and gets really angry when we bring these type issues up. Our fear is that we will get that phone call one day telling us he has had an accident.
Any help would be appreciated...
