There should be a cut off date for operating a motorized vehicle at age 90. Before that milestone, it should be on a case by case basis with family imput involved.

OK OK. 91 year old might not be able to drive much, but also the cones and few blinky lights don't avoid a crash either. Call the U S Army and get one of those tanks to park where we have workers who would be in the line of danger.

I was kind of shocked they say the pledge as well.

As I said in another thread on this incident:
Where's the outrage? I the driver had been a 30 something male with a BAC of 0.06, the MADD people would be out in droves crying for the drivers head on a stick and the reimplementation of the Volstead act.
The injuries are no different for the driver was drinking, yet one driver is vilified while the other merits a one line mention in article.
Both drivers are equally negligent, both should have know they were impaired.
I doesn't matter why the driver ran me down, I'm just as dead either way.

I'd like to think that the Director of the Public Utilities Commission might have an opinion concerning baricades or some other safety equipment for when workers are working under bridges and in the shadows. Ellen Anderson is beginning to remind me of Sonia Morphew-Pitt
