DRIVING LICENCE REVIEW AFTER ADMITTANCE INTO A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL
This article presents a case in West Germany in which transport authorities withdrew a psychiatric patient's drivers license based upon his condition. The author questions this action in that it was based upon no official reports about his patient and further, involved some infringement in the patient's personal rights--as a non-medical authority utilizing medical data to the detriment of a psychically sick patient.
