How to persuade elderly parents not to drive?


My dad is 91 and has had four eye surgeries and can't walk; my mom is 77 and has tremor and won't take the wheel because if she did, it would take away dad's masculinity (plus she hasn't driven in years and she's scared; last time I rode with her it was 2 blocks and she almost ran over a bicyclist and then a pedestrian). They want to go to church when I visit; church is a 30-mile drive on freeways. They refuse to let me drive or call a neighbor or cab; I am afraid we will all be killed. I am thinking of refusing to get into the car if they don't let me drive; what should I do?
