Once again I was witness to an elderly driver in our community having difficulty behind the wheel.

This time, last Sunday, the driver was taking a painful amount of time backing out of a parking spot at a very busy time at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre.

Our car has been hit twice there – once a hit-and-run and once we caught the elderly person trying to drive away after he put a nice crease in our car. I was nearly run over in a crosswalk in front of the Shopper’s by an elderly person who was white-knuckling it with blinders on.

An elderly person who doesn’t have family to monitor their driving can basically play ‘bumper cars’ until they get caught. Any proactive ideas on how to deal with this?
