Remove drivers licenses from elderly, and you'll need much better public transportation.

Neither will happen.

felching pen: That's it. I'm not going to any parades. Not in Virginia, not in New Orleans... they're just disaster magnets.


How about motorcades?

kittymewmewmew: Yup. Thought they were superficial as in fake, didn't realize that term existed for surface only injury.

I was picturing people faking to faint or fall over like some dash cam.

I can see this confusion. In English we might describe a person in those terms. "He is so superficial, he only thinks about his car. Such a fake. He's so shallow."  Effectively saying the same thing a few times, we use the word interchangeably in its slang form to refer to someone we interpret not to have a deep character.

However in the case of an injury, it becomes more literal and the slang use is not implied. It just means scrapes, bumps, bruises etc.

Superficial injuries?

Yes? Is that confusing to you?

skinink: The elderly driver wasn't a bad driver because he supposedly suffered a medical emergency which caused the accident. Hope they're all okay. At least it's only injuries and not deaths.


If he had any reason to believe he might have a medical emergency while driving that could cause someone else injury or death, he is a bad driver.

I spent 24 years in Virginia and never even heard of this Damascus place.  50 to 60 people must've been half the town's population.

/hope everyone recovers as fully as possible, and the driver gets punished

Was it near a farmers market or a country kitchen buffet?
