I don't normally get upset and angry about news events, but this story really got to me.
I read recently about an elderly woman (83) in Toronto running a red light and killing a young mother (who saved her 12 week old baby by pushing him out of the way, just). Here is a link to the full story: http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/...541/story.html
I read too many stories like this with elderly people being involved in deadly accidents.
What regulations are in place to make sure elderly people are still safe on the roads? Is there compulsory testing after a certain age? How regularly does this take place?
I've got nothing against elderly drivers, I just want to find out what safety regulations are in place to protect everyone.
PS. If you can answer why the driver would not be facing criminal charges for killing someone that would be good, as I'm confused by this too.
