Should pensioners be assessed before getting behind the wheel? 

Dear, “With compliance to the ‘collision’ that happened yesterday on Chapel Lane.

“The elderly man (driving by himself) hit the BMW whilst it was parked up with the handbrake on. It ended up being pushed through someones garden wall and coming to a halt after hitting a concrete post.

“This is a clear example of why elderly people should NOT be allowed to drive (or their driving should be assessed on a regular basis).

“The collision happened across from a children’s school and if there had been any children around then the situation would have been far worse. The BMW was legally parked, in broad daylight, and is now wrote off.”
