Rant: Senile senior citizens

Should not be on the road. I was behind a senior citizen who was wavering between lanes. After she finally settled on a lane, I sped up to pass her on a 4 lane road ( 2 lane each side), and she made an sudden uturn from the very right lane, across my lane and into the opposite direction, all without signaling. As soon as I sensed her drifting into my lane, I punched it and she nearly clipped back rear end.

She was driving a brand new hyundai without a plate yet. My guess she's going to crash it before the plate ever arrives.

The twin turbos saved a life.

Should have made this a general rant thread.

I hear you ! I live in a suburb full of useless drivers, from young drivers to senior citizens... You really have to be ready for anything and everything. It's quite an affluent suburb ( I rent ) and apparently dollars replace sense !

Lets not start banning drivers. Someone will want all BMW sport coupe drivers banned next.
I do think it should be illegal to have children in a car though. They are very distracting to the driver.
