Learning to drive and getting the first set of car keys is a memorable event. Giving them up is traumatic.
When should someone stop driving?
It is not as simple as “at a certain age”. The determination depends on health and responsiblity. Does driving cause you or others a lot of anxiety? Your doctor and the local DMV can help with that decision. I am not so old, but my eye doctor said I was only allowed to drive during the day. I had to learn to let others know about my limitation and adapt my lifestyle accordingly. When someone invites me to an evening event I make sure they know I won’t be driving and I often offer to pay for gas.
Today we not only have carpool, taxis and busses, we have Uber. And we still have our feet. I now live in a very small town. I can walk to most destinations.
