Article of the Month: Car Talk
Symptoms of MS, especially cognitive changes and spasticity, can affect driving performance and increase a risk of a car crash. In fact, people with MS are three times more likely to have a car accident. 

While there are many adaptations that can assist with driving, losses in driving skills are common. At some point, it is time for all of us, with or without MS, to hang up the car keys. For loved ones, bringing this up can usually be unpleasant, emotional, and relationship-straining.
