Don’t Just Sign on the Dotted Line: Assessing Fitness to Drive

@ VOL 42 ON SEP 02, 2015

“Nothing can bring the love of my life back. But if sharing our story indirectly results in one fewer person being injured by an unfit driver, at least some good has come out of this senseless tragedy.”

In “Don’t Just Sign on the Dotted Line: Assessing Fitness to Drive,” Dr. Genevieve Yates, a family physician from Australia, reminds us that driving is a privilege, not a right.  

In July 2015, while visiting friends in LA, her partner was hit and killed while out jogging. Since he died, she has been trying to find things that are positive and helpful to make a very horrible situation feel a little less senseless. One of these is by raising awareness of the dangers of unfit drivers on the road, and she put together a PechaKucha to spread this important message.

She hopes that by sharing her personal story in this way, it might just result, indirectly at least, in someone’s husband, wife or child being spared.
