    Old people must be respected, BUT they must not drive, when they get to the point where getting into the car takes more time than the trip itself they must understand that it is time to RELAX.

    Three months ago a cousin of mine parked his car and went to buy something from a store, he comes back and guess what? A 80 year old Lady hit his car out of no where, we tried to figure out how she hit him but we couldn’t, it was a weird accident! Another story which ran on the TV not long ago also showed a senior citizen almost killing a cashier in a gas station; some how he or she mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake and went literally inside the gas station..


    Anyway with all due respect, Senior citizens driving is not good at all!

    In your point of view, what is the age range you think men and women should avoid driving, although it does depend on their health condition

    good topic sis
    for me i think old ppl in the US drive because they have no one to take care of them . so we (arabs in general) think that old ppl dont have to drive or shouldnt drive because they got their grandsons takes care of them and get them anythin they want or take them anywhere they want...so in their case if they dont drive they will die just simple as that.....
    i also want to add or answer to the question u asked, in my point of view there shouldnt be a limit age for a person to not drive. men or women should drive until they get to the point that they themselves) think that they are not able to drive
    if u look at it , we shouldnt forget because we all going to that stag
    once again thanks for sharing this with us Samiah ....

    i think it would be very offending to senior citizens
    if such a law would be made
    because they are very sensitive to such issues
    imagine if someone would tell your grandfather he is to old to be driving wouldnt that hurt his feelings
    its okay if they entered a gas station every once in a while
    :eek:

    i dont think its a only matter of the age

    i think after 60 everyone has to do every year a test..........then u can make sure if the driver can handle everything good ..............even she/he has to look every year for her/his eyes................

    because some people are not ok when they drive with 60 - other can
    drive with 80 good



    thx and blessed and happy friday

    This topic was really for me to know how the members are going to
    respond and what kind of responds i would get

    your respond is one of the best, it not only depends on the health condition but on the elderlys life in general, in terms of who is there to take care of her, is he or she alone, in that case she has to drive to help her self
    during my externship i met with an elderly nice lady that was all alone and very sick but she had nobody as we know in the U.S (non-Muslims) leave their families without caring

    so there is no age limit, it all depends on how is the elderly living and who is there for her to help.

    i agree samiah, that was a really good answer
    but

    i want then to ask another point:

    when u dont make a limit with the age - because of this reasons up - imagen what will u say when they make an accident because of their age - maybe because they dont see good, the concentration is away or its getting less in this age or other things
    and a child will die because of that?


    maybe it would be better to ask neighbours if they can drive
    i think when they look - they will always find a way

    its a big problem in germany too - because here a lot of accidents happens because of the age - they found that out in a study



    so what to you think of that??????????
