The thing about some older people is that they probably shouldn't even be driving, and they don't have the ability to have sufficient situational awareness at a gas station, stop light, etc. Now I don't want any of you geezer's getting all huffy about my statements. My Grandfather was sharp as a tack, physically fit, and a very good shot up until asbestos killed him when he was 80. On the other hand, my Grandmother died at 84 and shouldn't have been driving the last 4 years. She would hit parked cars in parking lots routinely. Don't beat me up for not taking away her keys. That's a hard thing to do, especially when you have an Aunt on her side so she could keep leaching money. 2 years before she passed my Mother and I finally said "we're not asking permission, we're taking the keys."
