No i dont think that they should be allowed to drive their own car. my uncle has got it, he can hardly stand properly on his own without shaking, so we never allow him to drive. These people should continuously take medications and be under monitoring with regular follow ups.

reason: let's just say because "these people" say so.


one of these people
