Samenvatting Key points of the article. Major concerns: • There are a growing numbers of drivers with dementia; • Physicians often fail to recognize unsafe drivers with dementia; • There are no valid in-office tests available to predict individual driving risk; • On-road tests are often costly and unavailable. Proposed solutions: • Improved access to and subsidization of specialized on-road testing; • Increased support and transportation alternatives to help patients and caregivers cope with driving cessation; • Research into and development of tools for office-based driving assessment; • Improved physician education about dementia recognition and driving assessment.
