    OK moosepoops, since the other comments are closed, here’s another one for you! Should this particular 80 year old still be behind the wheel? I don’t know for sure, as I don’t know him. Before I’m attacked, I have no axe to grind with Mr. McManus, but this report in the BDN is used to illustrate a point.

    Is this Mr. McManus’ first accident or incident behind the wheel in the last few years?

    I think one of my biggest complaints concerning ‘elder drivers’ is that I am not seeing the cops cite these folks! If you “don’t see” someone, and then plow into them, then you were in the wrong, and should be cited! Never mind ‘being nice to the old fellow’, if he screwed up then ticket him! Maybe if some of the ‘Gramps’ that shouldn’t be driving, had a number of tickets behind their license, someone would see the trend and either pull their license or convince them to give it up (the preferred solution). Otherwise, they’ll just keep driving and driving until they kill someone in your family or mine.

    “Ramsay said no charges were filed as a result of the crash.”

    Why not? Is it now ok to go around ignoring the right of way and smashing into other drivers’ vehicles?
