Time for a Review of Driving Rules?

A man in Huntington, Cambridgeshire, UK drove his car through a plate glass window at a shop while reversing his car recently. He drove the car right down an aisle in a store, thankfully without incident to patrons and employees, simply property damage. The driver was reported for driving without due care and attention.

This reminds of a time a number of years ago when I arrived at a salon where I was working to find a four door champagne colored Mercedes sedan right in the middle of the salon. The woman, a regular patron of the salon, claimed the brakes on her car failed causing her to go through the plate glass window. Of course, she had to drive over a cement block guard that are there to slow down, then over a curb before she slammed into the salon. No one ever believed her given the location of the salon. It was highly unlikely to build up enough speed to accomplish this feat. She never lived it down.

The above incidents make me wonder if it is overdue for a review of drivers’ rules concerning road testing. I have been driving for a number of years and have come to the conclusion that all drivers need to take a road test every so often to prove they are road worthy.
