At that site, you also can take a "driver IQ" test and learn when one should stop driving.

Following are a few of those warning signs:

· Feeling uncomfortable and nervous or fearful while driving.

· Dents and scrapes on the car or on fences, mailboxes, garage doors, curbs etc.

· Difficulty staying in the lane of travel.

· Slower response to unexpected situations.

· Frequent "close calls" (almost crashing).

· Trouble judging gaps in traffic at intersections and on highway entrance/exit ramps.


· Having a hard time turning around to check over your shoulder while backing up or changing lanes.
