Re: Elderly drivers: when is it time to hand over the car keys?

Sooner or later you shall not be able to drive, have you planned for that?

Re: Duke In Rollover

Perhaps he has, is the information confidential? Certainly he should be treated like a normal person, anyone disagree? The cops often check drivers they stop, they might find that someone going too fast, had drugs in the boot or was wanted for other offences Any news about the other people in the 'a...

Re: Your plans for 2019 - make me jealous?

I did change the title to 2019 on my post

Re: Hand in your driving licence?

Msm mirror signal manoeuvre we learnt, belt up before starting the engine etc

If one 'forgets' to belt up it is time to stop driving
