"The other thing you should know about that video is that there is literally NO SHOULDER. There is no worse place on 95 she could have done that... Those lanes are skinny as they can be in Chester - it was a miracle that everybody emergency changed lanes to avoid her."

Except for the four vehicles (none of which was hers) that did crash at seperate intervals. These were all just prior to the 322 w. section. That is the line of demarcation where she actually should've realized that dozens of cars are coming straight for her and she proceeded anyways.

When I first posed this Mystery Women's identity question, I was not bashing her age but why the secrecy after they did learn of her. Then, I was the bad guy wanting to Brand her with a Scarlet letter and blah-blah-blah. That was not the case but it did provoke a lot of chatter about one's age and when to hang it up.

Police charge woman in driving wrong way on I-95


Police have identified the driver of the car that traveled in the wrong direction along I-95 last month. Margaret Lazor, 86, of Wilmington, Del., has been charged with traffic violations stemming from her Oct. 28 trip, according to the Pennsylvania State Police. Driving a 1993 Buick Century, Lazor allegedly became lost and ended up entering the westbound lanes of Rt. 322 in Delaware County traveling in the eastbound direction. At the point Route 322 connected to the interstate, Lazor continued onto the southbound lanes, traveling in the northbound direction. There were minor accidents as other vehicles swerved to get out of Lazor's way. It is not known exactly where she entered Rt. 322 or exited the interstate. Pennsylvania police have requested Delaware authorities retest Lazor for her ability to drive and retain her license.

I'm sure the video gave rise to the awareness of this problem. Nothing short of a miracle that nobody got hurt.

Not a bad idea for insurance companies and DMV's to require exams for seniors after they reach a certain age.

I am really curious as to how the woman got off I95 and away with nobody noticing.
