  1. I don’t CV mean to insensitive to the tragedy. 2 weeks ago, an older person in his 90s crashed thru a TD bank. Thankfully no serious injuries.

    I am in agreement with the many who support annual reevaluation for drivers beyond a certain age. Also, family members need to be proactive in making sure that zaidy doesn’t drive if they feel it might be a sakana.
