    Default Age Limits

    Another example of why we need age limits for driving...

    From WTVT FOX13 Tampa webpage.

    An elderly woman from Illinois rammed her car into a St. Pete Beach bank, killing one customer. It happened at the Wachovia Bank in the 400 block of Corey Avenue. Investigators believe 88-year-old Marjory Thompson hit the gas instead of the brake. The impact brought part of the concrete building down on top of her car. She was rushed to the hospital, but is expected to be okay. 51 year old Katherine Weber was walking out of the bank when the car hit. She later died at the hospital.

    I see nothing wrong with annual testing for elderly drivers. Just as younger drivers are high risk, older drivers can be just as dangerous.This article and countless others like it prove my theory.

    Ill just stick to my usual response on this subject, it goes something like this. DRIVING IS A PRIVELAGE - NOT A RIGHT!
