The deadly accident earlier this week at a California Farmers’ Market has brought mature drivers into the spotlight once again. The accident Wednesday claimed ten lives. Witnesses say the 86-year-old man driving lost control. Some critics say people over a certain age should not be behind the wheel, however law enforcement agencies claim sometimes the oldest drivers are the safest drivers. Keeping in mind that every person is unique, family and friends can watch the vision, flexibility and health of a mature driver to determine if they should hand over the keys. The State Highway Patrol advises concerned citizens to file a report to ensure that driver retake the test.
