Hanging up the keys.

What do you do when an elderly friend or family member is reaching the point where the safe operation of a vehicle is wavering under the pressure of loss of reaction time, distance equation, and just plain old age?

It’s a sensitive situation when you, for safety sake, need to have that dreaded conversation about hanging up the keys. The loss of independence is the first impact that is obvious, but there are many implications that have been unraveled within the video from CBS New. It’s a great primer for approaching this difficult task.
