Q&A - Dangerous to be on the Road
My ex wife has been hospitalized for mental illness and diagnosed as being bi-polar. My concerns are that my daughters go with her and her driving is very erratic. She won't let them drive and she repeatedly goes through traffic signs and lights. My daughters are so scared when they have to go in her car.
She was recently released from the hospital after about a month of psychiatric care. Each bout is getting increasingly severe. What has to happen before someone does something and before she injures or kills someone with her driving?
She is on anti-pysychotic medicine which she has been on before. In time she will stop taking her medicine because she thinks she is better.
A few years ago she had to take a driving test after an episode. She failed twice but barely passed on her last chance. I feel she should have to be re-tested as her behaviour is the same each time. The police are very concerned with her being on the road. I hope someone in your office listens to my concerns and does something proactive in this serious matter.
