    But seriously if your driving ability is impaired which it seems to be, would it not be far better to be poor and living in a tent than killing a minibus full of school children?
    Selfish in my opinion.

    It does seem that way. I just hope that we never cross paths especially with my grandchildren in the back

    Those of us who have an impairment or disability and drive must know and accept when it’s time to give up and stop driving and not wait till they cause or are involved in an accident by their own selfishness and ordered to stop driving by the courts.

    I doubt if Steve426 would agree with you.

    Without passing judgement as we do not have all the facts, I would hope that Steve426 would at least heed the warning and seek advice from his GP
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
