Old crazies in steel machines

Re: “Seniors can take the bus”, Letters Nov. 3-9

I, too, have felt that the driver tests for seniors are much too harsh. Or at least I did so till last winter when I gave up driving because of my age, despite the fact I was still an excellent driver (I’m constrained to say that my wife does not necessarily agree with that assessment). Now, however, that I find these old crazies in their steel machines are gleefully trying to knock me down at every intersection or crosswalk, I’ve changed my mind. Tougher laws are needed.

Andy Mulcahy,
