Police Offer Tips to Elderly Drivers
It was an elderly couple yesterday who caused a gas leak at Royal York and Bloor after the driver hit the gas instead of the brake on Wednesday.
Thursday, an octogenarian was taken to hospital after an accident involving a TTC bus.
Police confirm say there have been more accidents of late involving elderly drivers, which is why they have added a link to a guide for seniors on the Toronto Police Facebook page.
It includes safe driving tips and questions about whether you or your parents should cut back, or stop driving altogether.
TPS Constable Wendy Drummond notes that it isn't about ability. She says if you were a terrible driver at 30, you won't be a good driver at 80.
