Samenvatting With the ageing of the Australian population, an increasing proportion of elderly drivers may not be medically fit to drive motor vehicles, particularly people with dementia of the Alzheimer's type. Many people with dementia, particularly men, refuse to give up driving, and families frequently have great difficulty convincing them to stop.1,2 Also, in my experience, drivers with dementia -- particularly those who live alone -- frequently continue to drive even when they have been advised not to and their driving licences have been cancelled.
