 The American Public Transportation Assistance website has a link to organizations in Indiana that offer public transportation for the disabled.  This includes C.A.R.T. and other modes of transportation.


Indiana Links for Transprotation


Another alternative would be to place an ad in your local paper asking for a retired person or someone in your community to work as an assistant and provide rides when you need one.


I don't know if you are a member of a church or a civic organization or not but you can usually find lots of support there.


Please take a look and let me know if you need more information.

Expert:  Steve -- a.k.a. Oreport replied 11 years ago.

I am puzzled that your doctor would say that you can't drive a car --
especially since this seems to have come as somewhat of a surprise to
you. 



Was this a recent comment by your doctor?  Did they give specific
reasons why you shouldn't drive?  Had you been driving up to this
point?



I guess I'm wondering whether your doctor's reasoning is logically
sound or whether he or she is being 'playing it safe' (legally) and
erring on the side of caution in order to avoid possible malpractice
issues involved in medically 'blessing' your driving privileges.



In short. do you understand your doctor's reasoning -- and, do you agree with it?



If not, there are alternatives including professional 'clinical'
driving evaluations -- and possible retention of your driving
priviliges.



Thanks in advance.



Steve
