Elderly Drivers

Driving is a privilege, not a right, but it seems that legislators continually ignore the mistakes of a large voting bloc and focus on younger drivers as the cause of all ills.

Yesterday in Rochester, an 89 year old man drove his Subaru into a bunch of market stalls at the Rochester farmers market when, he claims, his foot slipped. 10 people were injured, mainly by moving/flying debris. But with demonstrated remorse like this, how can you take away someone's license? (/saracasm)

"The lawyers are going to be all over this tomorrow," he said from his house in Canandaigua. "(They'll say) everyone was under my car."
