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.
