Does go to show though that the older generation can be a danger on the roads! :(

So if the echo reports a 18 year is invovled in an accident - we can say

Does go to show though that the younger generation can be a danger on the roads!

Perhaps we should wait for the FACTS

Condolences to the family of the woman.

Unless they have a medical condition, it's not easy to get people to stop driving, just because they are elderly. They feel they are losing their independence.

Up until last Christmas my father was still driving, he was also 92 years old..
Thankfully he has now stopped, and bought himself an electric scooter.

I was only saying that its a coincidence that it was just 1 vehicle with an elderly driver.

I wasn't trying to be mean, or horrible, I was only saying.

Why even bother making such a callous remark.

Someone has lost a mother/grandmother.

ITS NOT A CALLOUS REMARK!

maybe if she wasnt driving then someone wouldnt have lost their mother/grandmother!

I was only stating what I thought after i read the article.

It is a very big shame and so unfortunate it has happened.
