Default Re: Driving?

Pay attention to the PALS responses to negotiating and reflexes, not just considering the motor abilities.
My PALS cannot back up anymore without turning the wheel the wrong way. He also turns too soon.
He pulls out too soon to pass, and pulls in too soon. Never before ALS did he ever make these mistakes.
He parks crooked in the parking spaces. Some days he is in a hurry, and others he drives too slow.
Obviously he drives very little anymore and mostly not at all. Very sad. Still, some days he's fine and
others not. It's too dangerous to chance.
