Driving is almost required in southern California. Kids itch to begin driving at 16. But when should it end? Take the case of 86-year-old George Weller who mowed down 73 people in Santa Monica 3 years ago when he lost control of his car. What are the signs that it’s time for an elder to give up the car keys? Host Gloria Penner talks to a registered nurse and eldercare specialist about suggestions for how family members can handle this delicate transition.
