FTFA: "We moved to have his license revoked immediately," said Trooper Richard Mahoney of the Weston barracks.


Good. You should have cited him as well though. Breaking the law is breaking the law. Ignorance is not an excuse.

/F'in old people.

Thanks AARP!

Maybe when one of your board members gets killed by a confused senior you will allow legislation to pass that requires the testing of executive function in seniors...

Oh who the hell am I kidding. It will never happen.

I'd argue most 87 y.o. driving is more dangerous than most "buzzed" driving.

Gifted Many Few: The Mass Pike is the most dangerous stretch of road in the country. I am surprised someone didn't smash into him on principle.


Is this irony?  Or hyperbole?

The Mass Pike?  Really?   The MOST dangerous stretch of road in the country?  Its 138 miles long, most of it is just normal highway; some of it has 20 miles between exits.

You need to get out more.

Impaired is impaired. Although you'll never get the Q-Tips here in AZ to ever vote for that. We pull people over for driving while brown.

What is surprising is that the old guy was out so late. They go to bed at like 6 pm and start their day at 4am

kimwim: I've been trying to convince my sisters to help me convince my dad to stop driving, he's 84. They are no help. It's going to take an accident or 7 to get him to stop. I fear for someone's life.


Check and see if your state has a program you can use to confidentially report a person's disability to drive.  My grandmother rightfully lost her license after such a report was made and investigated.

I didn't read the article, but if this man isn't charged with a crime, then there is no justice.  Why should it matter if you're old rather than drunk?  The crime is the same -- it's just as dangerous to drive the wrong way because you're fark out of your mind on booze as it is because your mind is rotted away by the years. Get him into jail where he might actually be able to get the proper medical care he needs to deal with dementia and at the very least, keep him off the streets.

The passing lane(left lane) is for passing other cars and for wrong way drivers, so move the f*ck over.

/Have a nice day.

Yellow line on your left: You is going the right way.
Yellow line on your right: We are all gonna die!

//Also really hates it when a bad driver is automatically marked as being a drunk by the brain washed masses.
///32% of deaths on the road are from drunk drivers. The rest are sober. F*CK!!!!  Statistics: How is they manipulated by prohibitionists? Idiots!

THIS a lot. I'd much rather drive the MA Pike all day than the NE extention of the Pennsylvania Turnpike once a year. And don't get me started on the Schuylkill.

I thought the doors, wheels and other sheet metal were supposed to blow of an old person's car if they enter the exit ramp instead of the on ramp.

The reason we let all these old people drive is because we don't want to have to drive our elderly parents/grand-parents every damn place they want to go

/not much mass transit here in Oklahoma
