Old people need to prove they can handle an automatic transmission car after filling up with petrol when they re-sit their driving test- once again, this wouldn't have happened with a manual transmission vehicle...

Inattention

We never used to have bollards everywhere to protect people from cars. This is a sad indictment on society as it is, poor driving, inattention and being in a hurry. Throw in the odd medical misadventure that people blame far too often. Take responsibility.

Whose at fault.

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
