A gentleman, at the age of 88, received a letter from the BMV (Indiana) that a written complaint had been received about his driving ability. He was not given information as to who made the complaint or any details of the supposed issues. He was given a date of revocation. He was sent a very long form for his doctor to fill out and return. This was done. The doctor has no issue with him driving.
I know this person. He drives short distances during the day in rural or small town areas. I also know if his license is revoked it will have a devastating effect on his mental health. This issue has already sent him into distress and depression.
I believe this issue was instigated by his son who does not live nearby and does not realize the effect this will have on his father.
Any of us who have ever been behind the wheel of a vehicle know that we all sometimes make mistakes. I feel this man's driving ability if being looked at under a microscope because of his age.
I have tried to research his options, but I am coming up empty. Maybe he could hire a lawyer to help him, but the son who is trying to stop him from driving is an attorney. I question how a lawyer would deal with another lawyer in this situation.
I appreciate any suggestions!
