75 year old lorry driver kills

BBC News - M1 fatal crash driver 'braked too late'
Now Im not ageist but wtf is a 75 year old doing driving a big cough lorry?
Their reaction times are slower then Pete when he is drunk!
I know my 75 year old gran wouldnt be safe and the old boy up the road is only 70 and he is bloody dangerous,
Which Dr has given him permission to continue driving ?
Its beyond me with so many people out of work why the hell we have to employ people with limit eyesight and reflexes in these positions (I know Dave doesnt want a job)

A 75 year old reaction time must be slower than a younger person.

Keep em off the road mate,
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.
