seems to me if you walk out in front of a car chances are that you will become a hood ornament or winshield wiper, watch where you goin' dont bet on any driver lookin' for you to jay walk or try insurance fraud.

My Mom is still driving zt 93. Yes, 93. She has been driving since she was 13 and never once was in an accident nor had a ticket. Now, who would you rather be walking in the cross-walk when you have the ok to walk, a 93 year old or those incredibly STUPID YOUNGER people who are texting and yakking on their damn cell phones? Certainly there have been accidents with older people driving but I doubt they are the cause of most wrecks. And to the person who said that the older people have to get an ok by their doctor and take a test my Mom never had to do that. I suppose if that is a mandatory thing our BMV's are just too lazy to bother with it because Ohio kinda sucks about most things. Not too long ago there was a woman here who was watching porn while masturbating and driving.....a for certain WTF moment.

Ok, I've said all along: Once you turn 70 you get your eyes testing and go through the whole driving license test every 2 years from then on. I love old people, I,ve known some personally, but a lot of them can't/shouldn't be driving on public roads. My friend and I recently saw an old ladie probably in her late 70s with a gd oxygen tube under her nose!!!!!!!!! Oxygen tanks are bombs! Old lady bites the dust on the way to church runs into soccer mom suburban, there goes the neighborhood! I'm serious old people should be checked frequently to see if it is safe for them to drive. Thank You and Good Night.

Rather than the 84 year old driver being a problem, jogging while blonde should be an offense. Everyone who thinks an 84 year old shouldn't drive will think twice about that when they're 83 years eleven months.
