Los Angeles senior citizens have driving privileges as long as they demonstrate the ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. The California Department of Transportation may place certain restrictions or conditions on a license when a driver's physical or mental abilities decline, but no one has a license revoked only because of age. An older driver also has no special immunity from fault in an accident.

An 86-year-old Sacramento driver made a wrong turn and ended up going the wrong way on Highway 160. The elderly man was aware of the mistake, reduced speed and drove close to the center divider. The driver failed to find a way off the road before there was an accident.

California police officer killed in off-duty motorcycle accident

 California police officer killed in off-duty motorcycle accident

Some Los Angeles motorists forget a driver's single, careless act can change another person's life forever. We've all done things we later regret but, when negligence happens behind the wheel, other people may pay the price. Many driving errors are preventable; however, once mistakes occur, the damage can be irreversible.

The recent death of a San Bernardino police officer shows how vulnerable anyone, even the best-prepared motorcyclists, can be to the actions of other people. The officer was killed while riding along Highway 91 in Corona. The 30-year-old Beaumont man had been with the police force eight years and had been assigned motorcycle officer duties in January.
