Older driver’s concerns


REGARDING elderly drivers driving cars into shop windows and parked cars while parking or taking off.

Already classified as an elderly driver, and obviously from the media coverage of those incidents, we are coming under close scrutiny and possible re-assessment or testing.

We will certainly accept whatever comes up.

But my reason for this correspondence is to ask the question, how many or what percentage of those vehicles were automatics or manuals?

Most of our generation were brought up with the old three pedal job or manuals, which I still drive.

It would be interesting to have the statistics on automatics or manuals, and should that show something interesting.
