By Robert Paul Reyes

If you lose control of your vehicle doing 70 miles per hour, I can understand doing damage to other vehicles in excess of $120,000 and totaling 4 cars.

But it`s difficult to comprehend how even a senile old bat could inflict that much damage in a parking lot where the speed limit is 10 miles per hour.

It`s a miracle that nobody was injured or killed. This old lady`s license should be immediately revoked.

Maybe the old bird flashed back to her childhood, and she thought she was in an amusement park playing bumper cars.

This is one more illustration why a person over 70 years of age should be restricted to cruising around in a Hoveround.
