Pennsylvania Drivers and Families
To help keep Pennsylvania roadways safe, it is extremely important that those licensed to drive are physically and mentally capable of safely operating a motor vehicle. This is important not only for the safety of the driver, but for everyone with whom they share the road. It is everyone’s right to be protected from death, injury or property loss caused by drivers unable to safely drive because of a medical condition. To help PennDOT detect those drivers who are unable to drive safely, health care personnel in Pennsylvania are mandated by law to report their patients who have conditions that impair safe driving.
