A missing 89-year-old Pleasanton man was found safe in San Joaquin County, according to police.

Please do not take this the wrong way, to people who know this gentleman, but is he still driving? The reason I ask that, (and this is probably too obvious) but I'm just wondering how he got all the way to San Joaquin County.

The article doesn't say where in san joaquin cty. he was found, maybe he decided to go to tracy, which is 20 min. away. I understand your concern Robert, my dad is 85 and drives everywhere on the country roads of Pa. The day he can't drive will end his independence. It will happen to most of us in time!

I hope that by the time my kids take away my keys, Google will have perfected that self-driving car of theirs. But until then, what exactly does one do when confronted by the issue of a driver who should no longer be driving? Do you call the DMV?

Tough call Jim---it is difficult indeed, to deny our parents their wings of freedom---but comes a time when every family has to face this issue. When you honestly feel that they are a clear and present danger to themselves and the community at large---you have to make the call---it is not easy, but given time and the passing of birthdays we will be there ourselves....Good Luck
