Let's put lilbuddha in charge
What is connected to ageing are the diminishing of factors that make operating a vehicle less of a risk. And everyone loses capabilities over time. Everyone. In that way, it is different to the mental health issue.It is possible it isn’t. However the comments about young people driving, to which I was responding, aren’t at all relevant and won’t be whether or not age is a factor in this accident.
It's possible. We simply can't know at this point. I made a comment about young people driving because Boogie made a comment about being driven by an elderly couple who drove in a dangerous way, as if being elderly was automatically connected with that particular way of driving.
The only way youth driving is related to aged driving is in having discussions about how to manage the dangers.
However, that generally isn't why youth driving is brought up in these conversations.
It's a real pity we can't seem to organize Shipboard discussions properly, according to lilbuddha's exacting standards. If only we could manage to follow lilbuddha's unfailingly consistent examples, we could happily avoid all tangents, all illogic, all sarcasm; indeed, we might eventually manage to banish disagreement, obviating any need for this forum. As lilbuddha routinely points out, all attempts at comparisons, metaphor or similes, humorous exaggerations, pokes at societal hypocrisies, etc. only drag discussion onto points lilbuddha considers irrelevant, unimportant, unedifying, and unenlightening. And as we all know, lilbuddha's judgment in such matters, fortified as it is by her exquisitely-honed and finely-ground moral sensitivities, is infallible.
