Reply To: Do you drive a car with the GBS?

I live in Europe, and after I applied for a handicapped parking sticker, the driving office summoned me for a medical examination a few months later to determine if I am still qualified to drive. It’s a hassle for me – I guess you Americans will complain again about intrusive governments – but here they’re thinking more about other drivers on the road who are at risk from less than fully competent drivers who insist on driving for their own convenience more than the safety of others. But the main target is not GBS patients, who are also relatively rare, but rather, the usual victims of strokes or old-age and are in denial about the whole thing.
