>old drivers

Why is there literally no political will to pull driver's licenses from old people who clearly can't handle driving anymore?

Also, would the cyclist been legally protected if you forcibly removed the old man from the car seeing he posed a danger to himself and others?

Quality intro to the video. Good on him to warn the dude, but come the fuck on, don't fuckin' wheelie with people around.

Dude is out riding, notices trail of motor oil. Follows it to find old man driving a car with a flat tire and a smoking engine. Old fuck proceeds to exit parking lot and drive on the roads with fucked car.

Old people have higher voter turnout than the general population, which makes them overrepresented and AARP disproportionately powerful.

My grandma developed brain tumors, and she became unable to drive.

Her license was revoked and I was given the car. A month later (yesterday), she died from the cancer.

Yes, old people's licenses can be pulled. If that man was pulled iver by a cop, he would've had his license pulled.

Totally this.

But I could understand not bothering. Using it for a laugh seems kinda poop, but, one in a million.

Honestly if he didn't notice all the other shit nobody else was going to stop him without physically removing him from the car. He even repeated back "losing oil?" so fuck that.

I think he meant it's gonna seize, which is also bad when you're on a relatively fast road

In the end the engine did seize, but at a red light
>>
>>14265173
I think it would be a good idea in general for everyone to get retested for their licenses every few years or so, but the problem is that many people who vote are either elderly or just plain terrible at driving and they naturally would oppose such a move, claiming freedom and rights and shit.

People who are on the internet all the time and read stuff like this (aka you) don't go out to the polls because of cynicism and hopelessness, so the morons and elderly have a louder political voice, and young people wonder why more politicians don't engage them.

>>14265339
Only thing that bothered me about the vid was him crossing across those mid section things into the opposing road and cutting through lanes in random directions.

how is that vehicle even moving?

also I wouldn't be directly behind him in a situation like that, if he would have lost the control arm then metal would be flying everywhere

Well crashing anything is not ideal ya dip.

You've never exceeded the speed limit? Maybe cornered to fast? God forbid intentionally lost traction?

Auto enthusiasts tend to do illegal things because it's fun. If you exclusively put around at the speed limit in a beige Corolla why are you even here?

To be fair, I don't personally do wheelies.
But I do speed on my baiku, especially in no-cops-land. The country is just fucking perfect. Everyone speeds on rural roads.

>crashed wheelie usually results in damage only to motorcycle and rider

>>14266949
>Oh yeah, what if you fail?
Either way the rider was in control of his vehicle even while doing a wheelie, and posed far less of a threat to others than the old person who clearly had no idea what was going on, or any other driver who isn't paying attention.

>insurance covers you.

This is why motorcycles have relatively high insurance costs... Because of fucking clowns that do shit such as stunting, FUCK UP, and then use insurance to fix it. This results in the cost of insurance for pretty much every bike except for a HD or a cruiser to go up. FUCK YOU.

Power steering.

Even without power steering you can manage it.

I did it once a while back. Though it was on purpose.

Do you really have to even ask this question? Old people have the highest per-capita percentage of voters. Anybody who even suggested this would get crucified in an election.

>>

This kid is insufferable. Wheelstands, driving over medians. He's scaring the shit out of that poor old man who's just trying to get home to someone he trusts. He doesn't actually give a shit either just using him for youtube. I'm sure the old man has tons of insurance.

There is literally nothing wrong with driving over a median if it's safe to do so. I agree with the rest of your post, though.

I should specify that I meant there's nothing morally wrong with driving over the median of it's safe to do so. Naturally you'd be breaking a traffic law.

>However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be dead in minutes!

The engine came to a stop without oil. What would happen if he was driving it while it happened. Why would he be dead?
