My brother was hit by an 86 year old today; he ran a red light and completelty totaled the driver's side of my brother's car. The older guy then just turned his van around and drove off into some parking lot (I don't know if he saw the cops or what), and then got taken to the ambulance! His van has minimal damage, and my brother's car is totaled. Just like there is an age limit to when you can start driving, there should be one saying when you need to stop!
It's not rude; it's just for the safety of everyone else on the road. It could've been a lot worse, and some day it will be for someone.
