I mean no disrespect in any way but 88 years old ? There has to be an age when people shouldn't drive anymore .... or a yearly driving/visual test after 75 or something ... I mean if a child was there, they'd be dead ... and I see some of these old timers going like 15 MPH down a 40 MPH road .. and swerving at that.. just glad my son wasn't playing in that area that day...
