Why is an 85 year old man with alzheimer's and a bad heart allowed to drive a car?

sorry, seriously steve? he has alzheimer's ... meaning he has no memory of not being allowed to drive, my grandmother had it and she thought she was a 20 year old in college most of the time ... think about it. They usually don't even know they have alzheimers.
