Many of us have had the conversation, for ourselves or our loved ones: is there a time when driving should stop and the car keys be handed over, for the safety and well being of the driver and others on the road?

Accidents can happen and cognitive decline can make the potential risk all the more likely. Read more about the implications of this serious problem Here. And what do experts recommend?
