Looking To The Future

To maintain a level of safety and independence in your driving, periodic reevaluations may be necessary. The exacerbations and remissions associated with MS may affect both the physical and cognitive abilities necessary for safe driving. Changes in medications can also influence your short- and long-term driving abilities.

Advances in technology have enabled people to drive using various ways to access primary (gas/brake) and secondary (signals, cruise control, high low beams, etc.) controls. Although the costs and the risks involved in using such technologies must be examined, people with disabilities have extensive resources and options to facilitate and prolong their ability to drive.
