OVER the age of 60, drivers’ reactions, I would say, are okay. They drive within the speed limits, slow down in good time and take the precautionary measures of signalling when changing direction. Yes, they do make errors, like any human being during the course of the day.
In comparison, younger drivers end up with points on their licences for speeding, they drive under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and would never admit the error of their ways. Thankfully, many young drivers survive their self-inflicted serious road accidents, can never remember what happened, lose their licences for a bit, and hopefully regret their actions.
How can you tell who is over the age of 60? They don’t have a sign in the vehicle window. Is it possible someone you know, Mr Andrew Taylor, tempted you to write to the Journal and condemn an age group in this way?
