Question Urinary incontinence in tabes dorsalis?

Tabes dorsalis affects the dorsal column of spinal cord. Dorsal column carries the information about fine touch, 2 point discrimination, pressure, vibration and proprioception. So,what is the cause of urinary incontinence or Argyll Robertson pupils in tabes dorsalis?

I couldn't find the answer on web and my neuroanatomy book.
