This article illustrates ethical dilemmas faced by therapists who provide driver reeducation. The dilemmas discussed are (a) accepting a wide range of referral sources and client disabilities versus the inability to know enough to anticipate all driver performance errors, (b) the client’s safety versus the client’s right to independence, (c) financial constraints versus advantages of technology, and (d) the reporting of poor driving risk versus client confidentiality. A method for determining one’s pattern of resolving ethical dilemmas is discussed.
