Over 100 years old and still driving!

And he is 7 years past the 100 year mark. His name is Joe Newman from 

Florida.

 

I would be so worried about him if he was my parent. But he is doing 

what he loves, but of course you still worry. His girlfriend is 99 years old.

My Mom is in her 80's and I worry about her, yet everyone is different. 

 

In Florida they renew licences every 6 years, unlike here in PA where it is

every 4 years. Hope they have fun in that Mercedes, driving around Florida

and stay safe!

That's terribly dangerous.

I'd be more worried about other drivers on the road than about him.

Just because someone is older does not make them a dangerous driver.  People are individuals. There are bad drivers at every age.  

 

I love his car.. good for him. he is making the most of his life.

Definitely and hope when he goes to renew his next license, he is told No.

I have neighbors that are very alert and "with it" at 95+ years of age.  All people do not get dementia!  Some do stay very sharp!

I just turned 70 and hope never to drive again.  Can't imagine driving at 100??!!!  And that sports car, he's in???  What a hoot!

 

Very happy I don't live in his 'hood!
