GPs, not elderly people, should decide if they're fit to drive


Published medical research in many countries and many disciplines has shown the contention that physician's can adequately judge any individuals 'fitness to drive' to be erroneous. What can be examined in a G.P's office cannot translate into a functional assessment of ability to drive. This is well documented and verified. Ms. Harman should consult the literature on the issue.
