Time To Hang Up The Keys

Coming back from the grocery store this morning, I saw one of those sights that does not instill a feeling of safety and confidence in one's fellow drivers. A lovely white Volvo 850 sedan caught my eye. As I passed it I noticed the driver -- a tiny old lady peering over the steering wheel, with her one eye. She'll probably be safe enough in her Swedish tank, but I fear for the rest of us.
