Jack Berman may not always know what he had for breakfast yesterday, but he knows he shouldn’t get behind the wheel.
“I could kill someone,” the 84-year-old said.
Berman is a Korean War veteran and one-time traffic engineer who helped install Portland’s first traffic lights. A few years ago, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and had to give up driving. It was his doctor’s decision, not his, but Berman recognizes that it was the right thing to do.
