Not sure it’s a good idea for 86 year olds to be driving.
The world that has been fashioned for us never ceases to amaze me.
I wonder what the little bastard looks like?
She looked in great shape for 86 years old and she’s still working a job.
God bless her!

Maybe so, but driving at 86 is not a good idea.
If Obama had a son he would look just......
Tyrus is a black male, 5’2” tall, 140 lbs, and is missing from 1200 E 34th Street, Chattanooga. He has been found and arrested.
Are you kidding me? My mom is 85 and she still drives everywhere. In fact, she drives three days a week about 20 miles each way just to go to her water aerobics class. Both my parents are very capable drivers. My dad will be 87 in a week or so, and he and my mom drive up to their cabin at least once a week which is about 40 miles one way.
My Uncle is 85 and drives to and from two jobs. He has relatives that lived to age 100.
My Dad drove until 99 and quit because people said his reflexes were not good. He lived til 107. I was determined that he be allowed to drive as long as he had DL and insurance. We all must work to pay for our government the way they invent to spend money,...
Is his sister named Pruis?
One size determinations fits all are not an honest evaluation of elderly people. She seems fine to me.
This is not about an accident caused by a woman too old to drive. It’s about theft and a victim of theft. She’s working so if she is feeble as you accuse, she would not be doing that.
Any woman should know NEVER NEVER NEVER to put a purse in a shopping cart in the first place. Any time I see one while shopping, I quietly tell the woman why it’s not a very good idea. I myself have a cross-body purse (google it if you don’t know what that is) and leave it that way when shopping.
“She looked in great shape for 86 years old and shes still working a job.”
Under Obama, I think everybody will still be working a job when they are 86 years old.
On the other hand, there’s cause for concern when elderly people do drive because they have higher rates of fatal crashes per mile driven, per 100,000 people, and per licensed driver than any other group except young drivers. A problem is that elderly drivers don’t deal as well as younger ones with complex traffic situations, and multiple-vehicle crashes at intersections increase markedly with age. Elderly drivers are more likely to get traffic citations for failing to yield, turning improperly, and running stop signs and red lights.
