Older Drivers

Saw an item on the news last night where they said that older drivers were 60 – 80% more likely to be the cause of their own accidents. What really annoyed me was they didn’t give statistics about any other age group. When you see the amount of young people killed on the roads every week usually involving high speed, alcohol or drugs it makes you wonder doesn’t it? The news seems to get skewed to make it whatever they want to make it rather than based on truth and fair play. I am not an older driver but I was incensed by the unfairness of it all. How about a bit of commonsense?

    And sadly, skewed news often reinforces negative stereotypes.

      Indeed! They should do more research.
