Car Hits Shop

I remember the days when shop fronts had a low brick wall with the window mounted above it.
Perhaps it should be that way still

Perhaps they should have steel girders running through them too.

Some older people are fit enough to drive, but I think they should be carefully monitored.

In my opinion an 88 year old should not have been driving.

Please don't take offence but I think most of you have not reached old age yet, I i'm 80 next birthday and the brain tells me I am as good a driver, safe as anybody, I don't know what others think of me. You know what they say, don't judge others till You have reach there age. It's hard to think you can't drive, but i am sure I would have enough sense to know when it's time to throw the towel in if I thought I was dangerous on the road. Keep the Wheels Turning Charlie

Charlie I agree with Astoness, yes a very good post. some people retain their senses and to a greater age than you. Unfortunately a great many do not. Is fair then to wait until someone seriously injures themselves or others. I would say having drivers checked out may not be a bad thing.
I would point out that some other younger people such as epileptics etc have their driving either stopped or restricted, this is for their safety and the safety of others.
