    How old is your mother or grandmother.the elderly has as much right to drive as you do or anyone else.some don't anyone to take them anywhere so they have to drive.and why is it always their fault.one day you will be old and I hope you have to walk everywhere so leave the elderly alone.

    oh, my bad. Did it say that this particular person lost their license? I apologize. I guess I missed that. You're mean dude. No bueno. No more debating with a strange man on Kxii.com for me. It's a little sad. think Im gonna take my 90 year old grandma to the DMV to get her license renewed. Later.

    Did you not consider a elderly person that lost their license do to a retest prooving inability to drive is saving them from harm too? Apparently not.

    I rest my case. I can't wait to see you, Mr. Jerry, age and lose your rights completly. I would type more, but I'm sure it would be edited by the staff. Karma sucks my friend.

    When you can no longer react to traffic control signs or lights, and confuse the brake and gas pedals, it's time to STOP DRIVING! When I reach the point of becoming a hazard to other drivers/passengers/pedestrians, it's time to hand over the keys. It rediculous to be in denial saying once your motor skills have deteriorated to almost nothing, you should still be driving. There are laws governing alcohol, teenage driving, but nothing for the dangerous elderly. Get a clue. It could save lives getting the people who shouldn't be driving off the roadways. Or will it take losing a friend or relative for you to change your minds?

    You have to realize that anyone who gets behind the wheel is taking a risk. Pointing fingers never equals a solution. Blaming someones age is rediculous and discriminating. Im 28 yrs. old and I have alot of respect for the elderly. Because someone ages doesn't mean we should take away their dignity by blaming accidents on the elderly. Have a tad more respect please when you type your opinions. I come to Kxii.com for updates on my county. Not to be humiliated by the cruelty of some of those I share the county with.

    STUPID PEOPLE, you dont even care if shes OK, do you? You just have to find something to nit pick about, And for the record shes not OK, but instead of sympathy for the family you critize, who called down and named you perfect, you are not going to sit there and tell everyone that you have never ran a red light or stop sign. STUPID PEOPLE you are just a bunch a A**HOLES

    Anyone that has ever gotten a traffic ticket could have killed someone, whether it be speeding, running a red light, not using a turn signal, crossing a solid white line, passing in a no passing zone, etc. Most of us have had traffic tickets that were our own fault. Any of this carelessness could kill someone at anytime, no matter what the age. We all need to practice caution when driving. One little slip could kill someone, or ourselves.

    As awful as this may sound, this is the 2nd accident in the last week and a half in Sherman that involved someone being injured due to an eldery person running a red light, who says teenagers are some of the worse drivers? I think there needs to be stricter rules put in place when it comes to the elderly renewing their drivers license. I know I will be that age one day and I sure hope that when the day comes and I can no longer tell the difference between a red light and green light that someone in their right mind will yank my license.
