I know I’ve ranted before about the elderly drivers and so forth. Today, however, I offer current events to support my theory. Here are three images to back me up…
***IMAGES DELETED*** (But trust me, they illustrated my point excellently)
The 85 yr old driver was parked in the handicapped stall. For unknown reasons, he put his car in reverse and stepped on the gas like he was trying to kill a roach. The vehicle shot backwards and hit a parked car. Witnesses stated he messed with the gear shift lever and hit the gas again, resulting in backing up and hitting a second parked car. Witnesses stated he again messed with the gear shift lever, tromped on the gas and shot forward in an arc, eventually entering the same stall he originally was parked in, jumped the curb and center punched a light pole, saving the wooden porch of a local business. A porch where people were sitting enjoying their lunch.
Think maybe he shouldn’t have a license? Neither do I. Oh…interesting addendum…his daughter was in the restaurant that the porch belonged to. She was in her 60’s or so. Here’s my question. Why the fuck wasn’t she the one driving!?!?!?!?!
Thankfully, there were no pedestrians inside Methuselah’s path of destruction, he wasn’t overly injured, and no one else was involved in the crash.
