Beware of the 103-year-old driver

Despite a recent report on a decline in fatality rates, the elderly need road tests before they can keep their licenses.

The 81-year-old came into the Plymouth Police Department to explain that after leaving a wedding the prior week, he’d driven his car into a snowbank. When the officers checked, they confirmed that the man had been at Country Club of Halifax but had exited through the wrong gate and ended up, not in a snowbank, but a sand trap on the golf course.

It was August.
