It’s Time for Senior Drivers to Fight Back Damn it!
As an active senior, I get damn frustrated by people who tell me that I’m too old to drive my car.
I haven’t been in an accident worth remaining at for at least 6 months, consistently drive 10-20 miles per hour below the posted speed limit and regularly stop in the middle of the road to read street signs or to avoid injuring squirrels. I’m a very safe driver.
Despite this, I am tailgated with alarming regularity and subjected to volleys of obscene language and nasty hand gestures from my fellow motorists on a daily basis.
I’m damned fed up. And in response, I’ve whipped up a series of bumper stickers specifically designed to get my damned message out to young motorists.
(I may be turning, I may not. I haven’t decided yet but that’s my damned business not yours)
(And stop telling me to sit on a phone book, smartass!)
(I’ll go whatever speed I see fit and having you slam on the horn isn’t about to change my mind!)
(As long as I have partial hearing, some sight and enough energy to press the damned accelerator you’re not getting me out of my LeSabre)
(Just because I find it amusing)
I hope that these bumper stickers will send a clear message to all the hot-rodding young pups out there that Don Mills will not be pushed around. If anyone is going to run me off the road, it’s damned well going to be me.
