today's accident on University Av where an elderly driver drove into several people outside the University Cafe Palo Alto reminds us all to evaluate if we are capable of driving responsibly. Many seniors and their families feel elderly people should maintain their independence and continue driving - this may put others in danger and is a totally selfish decision. Any age driver can have an accident but elderly are at a high risk and at some point need to STOP DRIVING so there's may be safe. Driving is a priviledge - don't abuse it.
