Long story short - a woman from my social group shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car! I have managed to avoid being her passenger for several years because I didn't feel safe (we all take it in turns to drive), but recently had no choice. I was genuinely scared at her driving (long stretches of driving on the wrong side of the road, near misses and sometimes out of control). A few of us have tried to talk to her about it, but she laughs it off and says she's fine. She is not. Her car is covered in bumps and scratches and it's common knowledge that she often gets behind the wheel after drinking alcohol.
I know that as, a widow in her seventies, she regards her car as a vital part of life, which I understand, but I really feel that it's not a question of IF, but WHEN she is involved in a serious accident and hurts someone else (or worse).
After a great deal of thought, I reported her to the DVLA. However. that was several weeks ago and she is still driving. Does anyone know how long it usually takes the DVLA to act? Thanks.
