A Driving Instructor's Blog

I wrote recently about the problem of elderly drivers. This in itself was simply a development of the Cassie McCord tragedy, where an elderly driver who simply should not have been on the road killed a 16-year old girl. In the footnote to that particular story, I linked to three further stories where elderly drivers had killed or maimed innocent people.

Well, this story just came in on the newsfeeds. It tells how Cyril Titcombe, 82, did a U-turn on the M4 and collided head on with another driver as he drove the wrong way. Both he and the innocent other driver were killed. The story suggests that Titcombe had been having problems with his memory.

As I said in several previous posts on this subject, something has got to be done about these elderly idiots who lie about their health to keep their licences and put everyone else’s lives at risk.
