I am almost certain I saw this on Bugs Bunny as a child.

Roy police do not believe the 77-year-old driver of the car intentionally ran over Watanabe. Investigators believe the woman did not realize she hit a bicycle, but apparently knew she had hit something and kept trying to drive around or over it by backing up and going forward.

If you think you ran over something and have no idea what it is, WHY IN THE EVERLOVING FARK WOULD YOU REVERSE OVER IT?! AND THEN DRIVE OVER IT AGAIN?! AND AGAIN?! AND AGAIN?!

Now police say they will meet with the Weber County Attorney's Office to determine what, if any, criminal charges should be filed.

She's old. Surprised if she even gets a ticket.

But I'm "picking" on her for saying that I guess, per one of the comments.

This is the second story that is race-related to come out of that small town. The other was a white guy harassing Mexicans. I used to live in Weber County. These are not kind, gentle Mormons. You either join their church or move or stay in Ogden with the other minorities that live in our fair county.

America has no driving tests after the first one.  She had hers in 1962.

Fairly sure she got alot more exhaust and other pollutants on him considering she backed up 3 times.


/ blow coal, lol
// we really should change it to that
/// it's far more accurate

Misperception of time due to delayed processing in old peoples' brains.

They hit something and run over it, and it takes some time for their brain to process "What was that noise and bump in the road?" They incorrectly perceive they stopped before it's passed entirely under their car, so they throw it in reverse and back up. Again: "What was that noise and bump in the road?" as they back over it again. Incorrect perception, and they drive forward again.

The person doing this should never have a driver license for the rest of their life.

She was probably making sure not to waste roadkill.

. . . Mom?

(I actually shouldn't be too hard on my mother, since we've now been in basically the same car accident, turning left and trying to beat the yellow light.)

Back in 2001, I worked with an older woman who had no damn business driving. She'd received her license back when her husband was deployed during the Korean War; he drove her into town when she was eight months pregnant to get it, so she could drive herself to the hospital when she went into labor. The sheriff had her drive around the block, and made her promise that she would onlydrive in case of an emergency, and gave her a license. Then she just renewed it for fifty years. Good job, rural Indiana.

That is a ridiculous explanation, and one of the dumbest things to have ever been written down.

The 911 call is recorded. She probably admitted to vehicular manslaughter. Five years in prison is a life sentence, and probably less than what she deserves.

That's the piggie sound giving tacit permission to murder bicyclists with your vehicle while in their jurisdiction.
 
2021-10-18 8:49:14 PM  
Just like they do in some other countries where it costs less you kill whoever you hit than if they're just hurt because of ongoing medical bills.  There's a 99.5% chance the explanation is compete shiat.

You don't need a license to drive. You just need a car.

This is one reason why we need to put the oldsters in national resiliency centers.  They are a danger and are of decreasing value to the collective.  Put them in resiliency centers so that we have economies of scale for handling the danger of oldsters.  If we let the oldsters roam free, they are just going to continue to hunt the rest of us for sport.  They have nothing to lose, so they can fulfill their dark desires, like hunting other people down and killing them for sport.

Christ, at the very least, that dumb birch should lose her license. Forever. She should never be allowed to drive again.

Because it's better to hit and kill someone than have them permanently disabled and sue you for every penny you are worth?

She is technically not a Boomer but a Silent and nobody hates Boomers more than the Silent Generation, they just don't say anything about it.  Because they're silent.

*sigh*

It's not that hard, having not even read the article, that folks get old and they're just not that good at things as they used to be -- I've witnessed this myself with my own parents, and I'm not even mad.

I'm one of those early adopters of technology, but I do it with timid optimism -- I do it with a sense of a loss of our autonomy, but at the same time I can see the benefits, like with my old folks being able to get out & about if they had an AI car that would self-drive them around to all the places? I'd be down with that.

And it's not like the AI car would even have to be better than a human driver, it just has to be "not as bad as they are", so I'd vote for an automatic car that wouldn't runover and runover again a person walking on the street -- that fits-the-bill for me.

This also means my parents can get out of the house and do their weird "crusty old people things" that people used to do together, like exchange recipes, and go to church, or whatever harmless thing it is that old people want to do, but they're not driving while they go to do it.

Call me weird, but I'm #TeamOldPeopleInSelf-DrivingCars

And THAT is why you don't ride in the sidewalk. It's dangerous as fark. Drivers are not expecting something traveling at the speed of a bike on the sidewalk. It's not the side - bicycle lane. There's ar reason that you're not suppose to ride there, and this is the exact reason.

Although, most people stop after hitting you once.
 
2021-10-18 9:06:16 PM  
Some people should just have their license revoked. I remember one time with my grandmother driving. "You just ran a red light". "No I didn't."

Sorry Grans, you're a danger to society
