I really like your attitude.

My attitude is the same and our 4 kids want us to enjoy retirement and not worry about how much is left in "their inheritance " when we die.

My post that referencing inheritance was to give a well thought out post about the issue with aspects that are not normally addressed. Why does your opinion of the nature of inheritance needed, when all I was trying to do is to point out problem; and perhaps some other people are concern about it. It was not to make an issue of inheritance or to discuss the good or bad.

My other post was humorous to show that problems of an aged driver and to indicate some behaviors that often occur. It was not to have a discussion about the turn signal or to point figures at other culprits (notice the spelling, for the one who cannot spell).

Why is that some people are so dense like a rock, that they must carry the issue beyond the discussion to showcase their opinions, that are not needed, and so criticize people who may have that concern; and to those who cannot understand true humor.

When my driving gets bad, my kids would be concerned about me injuring myself or endangering other drivers,

They sure wouldn't see it as losing --" their"---inheritance,

But, iI guess every family 's kids are different

Some are concerned for safety reasons, some only see $$$$$$$$$$$

It has been my experience that people who point out spelling errors ,to discredit a post, can't come up with anything else to refute it !

The point is NOT the "kids' inheritance." The point is your ESTATE. You could be planning to leave it all to your elderly sister or to cats and dogs or to the American Red Cross. The point is that if you get SUED for manslaughter on the road you could lose it ALL.

Ever wonder why the older folks seem to drive the really big cars? I've been told it's for comfort but maybe it's so when they play bumper cars they have a better chance.

Exactly. As an older driver - you might survive an accident .... but if you kill someone you can lose everything you have....

You might as well be dead.

my father in-law is 85 and is entering the mid stages of Alzheimer's,the Dr. took his license away (way to soon) so he has been driving the last two years with no license and no insurance. (the house is in his wifes name and he holds no claim to it) but the time has come for him to get off of the road before he causes a bad accident.
for us to take his car away is the equivalent to signing his death sentence. but that would be better than allowing him to cause someone else to die or get injured.
