  • So sad for both families, but I do think the elderly should be 're tested after a certain age .

  • Take time to observe traffic around you and I think you will find the bad drivers are far from elderly. In fact very few accidents are attributed to them

  • Perhaps this is time to look at the driving abilities of the elderly.Far to many of them are just not capable of dealing with modern driving

  • This is yet another sad outcome of a traffic accident in St Ives town centre. Last year a driver of similar age ran his car at high speed round the town centre hitting pedestrians and destroying street furniture.
