A New York binman  had a fit while driving his bin lorry and drove into the back of a British couple killing them. He has been conviceted of murder.

He had stopped taking his tablets, and he didnt tell his employer he had epilepsy.

In the UK you can only get a driving license if you have been free of seizures for a year, or if you only have sleep siezures.

To drive a heavy goods vehicle or a passenger vehicle (with more than 8 seats) in the UK, you have to be free of seizures for 10 years, and no longer require anti-epileptic drugs.

Youalso have to be declared fit by medical examination.
