Topic: The Elderly Driving
Title: Old people should not be allowed to drive.
I. Imagine this, you're driving. That white Prius starts braking for no reason. You're
already stressed because you're late. You speed up to cut off the driver and who do
you see driving? THAT one grandma.
II. You don't really notice how dangerous old drivers are until you're tailgating one.
III. Even though some elderly drive responsively, elderly drivers should not be

dangerous drivers, why some think they belong on the road moreso than young
teenagers, and finally the statistics of my point.
