Should Driving in Retirement Be Outlawed!
Observation Made By Myself While Trying To Park a Car In A Local Supermarket Near Me.
4. However, the women, who was the passenger, came around and helped the senior citizen out of the drivers side. I could not believe it, he is the one that needed help.
5. He then walked around his car and did an inspection of said car. (Keep in mind this is happening while being illegally parked and blocking other cars from trying to get into that area of the car park.)
6. Both returned to their respective car seats where upon he started the car, did a U-turn in front of everyone and preceded to another part of the car park.
Hear by ends my observation but it does beg a few questions.
- Should Senior Citizens or retired people be required to take a re-test once they reach a certain age?
- Should the retired be able to park anywhere that they so desire to make their life easier?
- One other question I might ask is should they be tested for their power of observation of what is happening around them and what affect they are having on other people?
As I am a Rambling Senior Citizen how would I answer these questions?
- Due to my age I would say no to a re-test of pensioners, even though in my heart I know this would probably be the right thing to do.
- No one, including senior citizens, should be able to park wherever they wish. I have seen young drivers doing much worse than what I have described above.
- For the third item concerning observation. I think this should be taken on a case by case observation by other people both retired and non retired.
