"World's oldest driver, 105, has been on the road since before the first Ford Model T rolled off the production line but still says 'I feel young"

Headline needs gooder grammar.

That's because there aren't that many speed traps in New Zealand, and cops really don't care about speeding. The whole system they have over there is better than the US has.

"Gas rationing during World War Teo effectively ended his business."

Nevar forget.....

To proof read your articles that is.

Unfortunately, because he still drives four miles per hour with a man carrying a red flag walking in front of him, he has caused 101,378 motorists to crash while trying to pass him.

No. Not really. I'm just kidding. Nobody can pass a car driving four miles per hour in New Zealand. There's a flock of sheep in the way. It's a well known fact that sheep heavily out number New Zealanders.

Come to think of it, there might be a connection between the flocks of sheep and the accident rates in New Zealand. Needs further study.

On the back roads where I come from there are no sheep and the yahoos drive like they are the only vehicle on the road. You need to look all eight ways at a double crossing. They're all jerks, especially over in Lakeville.

You'd think survivalists would drive carefully, but no, human nature is not that prone to logic.

The only thing stupider than allowing old people to drive is to allow anybody else to drive.

My dad turned 79 last Sunday and in the previous 50 years that I've known him, he was only in 2 minor accidents. In the past year he has totaled 2 cars.

/of course one was a Cadillac, he is an old white guy after all

My uncle is 105 and still driving. Very slowly, and pretty much only to church and the store, but he still gets around.

It also needs to not be a load of cobbler's. The article clearly shows him to have been born in early 1908. The Ford Model T went into mass production later that same year. Unless he's been "on the road" from the age of six months, this is just another example of the Daily Fail having nothing to do with journalism, and just being a crappy blog.

One does not simply drive into senility.

Kudos to him, this keeps him going I am sure.

When he broke his left hip three years ago, his doctors said to stop driving for six weeks but he didn't pay them much mind.
========================================================

Normally when you break your hip at 102, you never walk again.

I'm guessing either he's an amazing healer or it wasn't really broken. Maybe a teeny tiny crack or something?

Get off the farking road, yoda! Just because you haven't hit anyone doesn't mean you haven't been the cause of accidents.
