Retest after 70 years old and then every 2 years after that... One of our kids could have been on that sidewalk!

ok, and about a mile away at the same time you have Three 'kids having fun' flip SUV but walk away unhurt in single- car crash in Baiting Hollow. Michael O'Hara, 20, of Riverhead, identified himself as the driver, how about once you do something like this you need to be retested! He could have killed himself and his 2 passengers!

I guess the driver became confused by the "drive-through pharmacy sign?"

I was almost killed by an 88 yr old driver in 1998 -in shoreham- who didnt know that a red light means stop. Its time we start making the licensing procedure harder in this country. Make drivers ed more like it is in europe. Start retests after 65. Theres no need to be hearing about stories like this as often as we do
