One of the most contentious issues that that occurs between spouses , adult children and a parent, or doctor and patient, is the issue of driving capacity. The decision to relinquish one's driving privileges may come about following a stroke or head injury, due to physical decline from Parkinson's, PSP, or cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's.
