● If you drive a car, be aware that cognitive deficits don’t make you a better driver, and that a car is a weapon to bicycles and pedestrians.
● Drive carefully, on familiar routes, being patient and generous with other drivers.
● Allow enough time or permit yourself to be slightly late—“caught in traffic” is a completely valid excuse in LA.
● If you are feeling iffy about your cognition—we can often tell when we’re not 100%--either stay home or, if you’re out, drive slowly and carefully home.
● Drowsiness is a cause for red alert—pull over immediately.
● Learn the bus system, let professionals drive you where you need to go.
