I could not convince her that she could not drive her car so I brought her to MVD (Motor Vehicles Department). They went out to the car with her with a clipboard and asked her to get in the car and put on her belt (she did fine with that). But it was when she couldn't figure out how to close the door or roll down the window that she was finally convinced that with her Alzheimer's she would not be able to drive her car anymore.
