Full description:

Sheffield University are interested in exploring views of people with mild cognitive problems (memory and problem solving) and their families on deciding when it may no longer be safe for them to drive.

Would in car technology be a positive thing (to demonstrate ability, possibly reduce insurance costs, reassure families) ?
