I had my driver’s license revoked when I was at my worst, rightfully so. But a few years later I felt I had improved enough to drive again, so I went in & took the permit test & driver’s test. Since I used to teach driver’s ed & also knew the routes used by heart, it wasn’t that difficult to pass both. I wear AFOs & use a cane to walk, but I do have some feeling in my feet, not a lot, but enough to know where my feet are & how much pressure to put on the accelerator & the brakes. If I had any less, I would switch to hand controls like my son uses. But when he got new ones last year, it did end up costing him $1,000, so that can be an issue. I live in a small town & know every street by heart, but I would never dare drive in a large city; but then I never liked it before either. Don’t give up your driving if you feel you are safe. One caution, try not to ever drive when the extreme fatigue sets in, as one’s brain tends to become tired as well. Just my experience…
