I am wondering if family member's have any legal recourse to take away (have suspended/revoked) a elderly parent's drivers license soley based on the fact they don't think their parent should be driving?
Parent is in mid 80's, excellent health both mental and physical. Parent takes care of all his/her own needs, runs household, pays bills, handles all of their own day to day activities. Only concern is that parent needed and has fully recovered from hip surgery and has doctors blessing to return to all normal activites.
Does not take any medications, no restrictions on license when renewed 4 months ago, and has never had any accidents. ( don't know if it matters, but I have ridden with idividual several times and am very comfortable with abilities)
Family members threatened to have license taken away and to remove personal vehical. Is this a possiblity?
By what means can they even try to do this... what is parents recourse? Parent is very upset and confused as to what needs to be done or how to fight against this. (said family member is not first in line POA)
A point in the right direction to protect this persons rights would be greatly appreciated.
