We often hear stories and handle cases of people who were cut off or rear ended by elderly drivers. Sometimes it leads to injuries, sometimes it doesn’t. But it can be a risk for both parties involved.

Elderly driving is a sensitive subject; we understand that completely. People who have lived a long life, fought in international wars, raised an entire generation, and took care of us younger people our whole lives deserve respect.

CRYSTAL RIVER – On Tuesday night, Nature Coast’s boys basketball team received its stiffest challenge from a Class 6A, District 7 foe this season, and apparently, it didn’t sit well.

Op-Ed: Where we go from here

William Smith, Special to Hernando Sun
