OPINION Bring your garden 9 June 12, 2019 www.communityn­ BACK LIFE Elderly not the problem READER’S PICTURE TO I WOULD like to comment on Sam McDonald’s letter about testing aged drivers. OK, I get it, it’s frustratin­g for you to watch, but arranging their walking sticks or whatever other aid they use to help them walk while stationary has nothing to do with their driving skills, so I don’t see your point. Something a lot more frustratin­g to watch is people not in the elderly age bracket driving while on their mobile phones, texting, talking and just asking for an accident to happen. By the time they react it’s too late. This is the epidemic and what should be clamped down on, especially while accidents are on the rise because of this reason. So please, don’t blame the elderly and keep your eyes on the road and not on your phone. Elderly driver supporter.

That is a very dangerous environmen­t. Some elderly person getting out of a vehicle in a carpark is not very likely to injure or kill someone. How do you propose elderly people should get around then? There is no bus service at Miami Plaza. You should have more considerat­ion for the elderly, Mr McDonald, as guess what, you will become one some day. Dangers are elsewhere RE: “Test age skills” (June 5), are you for real?
