    Make sure he pays all his insurance In HIS OWN policy, not yours. Good luck for both of you.

    You bet, right now he's riding on dad's dime, that comes to a halt in about two months. He's a good kid, not a ticket one so far.

    Yup, but they don't always. Hey, I thought this tred was about 'Old people should not drive.' How did we wind up talking about the kids who have no business driving? Not defending them, mind you.
    If all you are gonna do is give me grief about what I post DON'T READ IT Heh? Have a nice day :-D

    I'm disagreeing that "old people" shouldn't drive, and suggesting that if we really want to cut down on operator error vehicle accidents, it's young males who should be taken off the road. And Asian women.

    I do agree that after a certain age, folks should have to take a comprehensive driving test - road test, not written. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if everyone had to, regardless of age. A terrific part of it could be while the person is driving, have someone call their cellphone or text them. If they answer, they fail. If they break out in a sweat and are clearly jonesing, they fail.

    I can think of four Asian women, off the top of my head, who would take offense to that remark; good thing they don't read these forums; but 1) you don't care about that; you don't know them and vice versa and 2) Why pick that specific stereotype? Especially around here. I'd have thought you would make a reference to the "transplants" that drive around here like they're on a freeway.
