  • Yes. Try to think about how you would feel if someone hurt your child from a car accident, because of their sight or hearing problem that they knew about- but chose to ignore it.

  • Yes. But I live in a city where its feasible that I could survive without driving if I had to.

  • I would go to a doctor to see what's going on. If it is hard to drive, I would at least limit my driving.

  • Yes, I have seen too many accidents with older relatives and I hope I will give up my license whan these things start to happen to me.

  • Yup, but then again, I don't really like driving that much these days. Any time we go out as a family, I make my husband drive. Or if I'm out with friends, and I can convince a friend to take their car and drive, I will happily let them. I think it's because I grew up in a small town, with any easy to navigate grid system to the streets. I didn't mind driving then. Now I have to drive through a large city if I want to go anywhere significant. The traffic sucks, the streets suck, the drivers SUCK, and it's hard to navigate.
