The family should be the best source of knowing if her ability to drive was diminished, and if so, they should have taken the responsibility themselves to stop her. If the doctor felt she was too diminished, then yes, he should have reported it to the DMV as well. If the family thinks this is the case, and they don't want to be the "bad guy", they can call their local Police Department and talk to an officer about it. The PD can watch for that driver, follow them, and inevitably they will make some infraction and can be pulled over. The officer can then have them retake a driver's test, and if they are impaired, problem solved since they won't pass.View Thread
