A plea following the death of my partner

Don’t just sign on the dotted line: assessing fitness to drive

Written by Dr Genevieve Yates · Wednesday 11th November 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, my partner was hit and killed while out jogging.

Since he died, I have 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 I put together a Pecha Kucha talk (6min 40sec talk comprising of 20 slides, each lasting 20 seconds) to spread this important message.

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