It's time to study the meds these people are on, and how THEY may be affecting their driving. Think meds for high blood pressure. Stats say 70% of Americans are taking them, and trust me on this - those side effects are DEBILITATING. Why I chose to say NO to them. Screw it. Not giving up what 'quality of life' I have, which includes driving. And, YES, they DO affect your ability to react and pay attention.

Classic Libtardian news tactic. Cite a stat out of context.

Is Ohio the state with the 7th highest percentage of it's population being over age 65?

If so, then it would be expected to be 7th in the Nation. So...what?

I have my late grandma's car, a 94 Buick Regal Custom.

She willingly gave up the car to me, two years before her passing.

I needed the car, my sister had to have my 93 Honda Accord DX.

My neighbor passed away last year. He was an honored WWII Veteran and one of the coolest guys you could ever meet. He had a beautiful house, well kept and always had family, friends and even currently enlisted Military personnel stopping in to visit him frequently. He called me over to help him a few times (like the time he got his head stuck getting his shirt on and was late for his Doctor appointment lol). He was very independent and still drove wherever he wanted to go.

One night, he asked me to go help him pick up an item from the store since it was too heavy for him to handle. He wanted to drive. Almost right away, we went through an intersection and the light turned red about halfway through. He stopped. Right in the middle of the intersection lol. I watched for cars and told him to go ahead and drive through. People were not happy and lots of honking going on. I told him..."Warren, why don't you pull over and we'll switch places? I'll drive from here". He didn't argue at all and we joked about it the rest of the way. Even months later, he chuckled about it as though he and I were wanted criminals that had gotten away with the biggest crime of the century lol.

I miss that old man...
