Driving While Blind

There's no way to comment on this story without losing credibility. You have to read it in full.
Darlene Lynn Wigston Has anyone ever called their worker and complained that they don't feel safe riding with their volunteer driver? If so, was anything done about it? Barry and I visit our son on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and had a different driver each day of the week. Our Sunday driver is always talking about her cataract surgery, including the fact that she has only had one eye done and the other still needs surgery. She was told by her doctor that she should get new glasses because the one that had surgery has a different prescription now but she says she won't do it because she wants to wait until the other eye is done so she doesn't have to pay for 2 pairs of glasses. So right now she is driving with cataracts in one eye and the wrong prescription on the other. The kicker came one day when we were stopped at a red light and the car in front of us had a sticker on the back of the vehicle that was very easy to see and I commented on the sticker. Barry was also able to see and read it very clearly from the back seat. But our driver admitted that she couldn't see any of the letters at all, never mind read it. Another thing that scares me but I didn't tell our worker about is the fact that when we are on a straight road she rests her hands on her lap rather than keeping them on the wheel. Anyway, the day after the sticker incident I called our worker and asked to be switched to another driver. So what happened? THEY GAVE HER THE TUESDAY DRIVE AS WELL!!!!! What is up with that?
