What a tragic story, I held my 2 year old and cried after hearing this. My daughters Kokum (grandmother) at 73 decided for herself that despite being in good physical and mental shape, she would no longer be driving. Not everyone has the brains and consideration she had, but I wish they did.

I think that everyone who has ever hit or even ALMOST hit anyone in a crosswalk should read this again. Almost every parent who walks has a story of their stroller, kid or wagon ALMOST getting hit. I have friends who have been hit and who have had their wagons hit and their kids withen inches of being hit and the driver totally oblivious to it all.
People need to SLOW the heck down and pay attention... to people AND traffic laws.

Very sad story indeed. I am glad the baby was okay and I hope he will have a good life.
I agree with re-testing, not only seniors, but ALL drivers, regardless of age.
There are some very unsafe drivers out there. I think the government should have every one re-tesed every so often, and as they move into a new age category, the testing should be more frequent. I don't know how that would work though! Each time you go though you should pay for the test.
Same goes for serious traffic violations, a slap in the rist doesn't do much! If someone speeds, caught for reckless driving, take their licence away until the pass another road test, at their expense!

hwat a waste of a young life - manadatory testing for seniors NEEDS to be implemented...if you pass the test you maintain your RIGHT to drive - fail, you shouldn't be behind the wheel - I see seniors at the mall that can barely walk, shuffling with walkers, yet operating a car, what would be the response time if somebody walked out in front of them? It is up to the medical personel and the families and the government to make sure that somebody that shouldn't be driving has their liscence revoked - and if YOU know you shouldn't be behind the wheel, you should be held responsible if you continue to drive and cause an accident.
