  1. The DMV shouldn’t allow 85 year old persons to be behind the wheel – reflexes, vision & hearing are NOT upto snuff at that age – additionally, Insurance Agencies shouldn’t cover them.

  2. Surprisingly he was still a good driver. I miss him very deeply…not the way I wanted him to go at all 🙁

  3. My deepest condolences to this gentleman’s family and friends.

    Driving is a privilege and not a right. How many of us are taught this while learning to drive, reading the driving manual, or in traffic school? If you can pass the test and are driving responsibly, no matter what your age, you get to continue to drive.

    If you can’t drive to the best of your ability, or you know you shouldn’t be driving, then it’s imperative you retire your license and stop driving.

    Younger people feel they have the right to make blanket statements about age and driving ability. From what I’ve been seeing on the road lately, it’s the younger drivers that need to have their driver’s licenses revoked.

    Stop, look, listen and drive without the distraction of cell phones, tablets, movies, shavers, make-up or food. Your life, and the life of others, depends on this.
