I had to go back and re-read . . .I see my comment about older people mixing up pedals has quiet the following LOL my point simple was there comes a time when someone should not be behind a wheel any more. But I see lots of people out driving that shouldn't cause no one ever wants to admit they shouldn't be doing something.
With any luck, age brings with it the opportunity to trade inexperience for experience and "youthful over-exuberance" for a semblance of wisdom. I dare suggest that a majority of the incidents following car shows and similar meets belong to the younger participants (or onlookers). Teens and 20-somethings rather than AARP-eligibles.Yes I agree. as we age we get less "good at driving" the problem is most people cant face the fact they are getting old and insist they are still sharp as a tack when in fact they are not. You dont hear much about (sober) teens and 20 somethings accidentally mixing up the pedals and driving through a bank or cafe store front. there comes an age when people need to hang it up and admit they dont need to be behind a wheel any more. hell once my day comes ill be so happy to have someone drive me around
People who have become accustomed to being independently mobile are naturally going to be resistant to giving it up, at least partly out of not wanting to become an encumbrance on family and friends. I'm convinced that that was my own father's outlook, especially after Mom died and he was alone in the house.
