Epilepsy driving laws in OHIO (or US law)

Asked over 1 year ago - Geneva, OH

Scenario: Woman is diagnosed w/ seizures - medical restriction is set. She drives with two children in her car. Seizures are frequent and medication is currently experimental and she has symptoms of intoxication similar to that of DUI most days.

1. Are there laws/superintendent regarding physician medical restrictions?*
2. Are there child safety/hazard laws regarding the same?

* ยง4507 seems to aim at drugs/alcohol and not prescription/seizures

Thank you.

    Answered . 4507.08 deals with a restricted license for people with medical issues as well. This is up to the persons doctors though. I had a client with epilepsy that lost his license due to epileptic seizures but they changed his medicine and he was able to be clear after six months of being seizure free. He had to get a form from his doctor. If this person is a concern to you then you should contact there doctor about your concern.
