  1. What I would like to know is why there are no charges here. It’s obvious that a law was broken, so what the hey .

    I bet if she had been a senior, people would have been all over this! They would have been demanding she not be allowed to drive again because she was a danger to society! There would have been mention of re-testing etc. What is the difference in her making a mistake and an older driver making a mistake? The answer is, nothing! People have to realise that you do not have to be older to screw up!
