prejudice

Yes I think that people who do not have the skills to drive should not drive. Of any age. But I fear the overgeneralization to 'the elderly' that I read in these posts. That is pure prejudice. Have I ever seen an elderly person wander out of a lane. Well sure, occasionally. Have I seen a young person wander out of a lane? You bet, frequently! I have fast reflexes, excellent vision, and notice and avoid the dozens of younger people lurching, wandering, jerking along while focused on their cell phone conversation. Never saw an 'elderly' person talking onacell phone while driving. I'm good at avoiding wild people and trucks bent on tailgating on crowded highways. What about all the just- below- the legal limit- drinking drivers? Something needs to be done about unsafe drivers, but it should not be based on a class--that is just prejudice.
