OK, I am not going to say to Dad, I TOLD YOU SO. But I will tell you. THis is me the one recuperating from the aortic dissection, so I didn't need more adventures with daddy dearest....AGES ago I had told him to stay away from this mall. My concern was most focused on what he looks like and how ripe he would be for picking and a victim of crime...his elder age, short stature, ability to be focused on things, not so much his surroundings, belief in the goodness of all people so no one would dare to victimize/rob him. He has a closer mall to walk at and does regularly when the weather is too cold or unpleasant....So today he obviously went where I said not to, and got into a little fender bender...he has significant damage to the front passenger side of his Buick Encore. I don't know what he hit or even if he was hit and someone took off, but somehow the police made an appearance. I'm assuming they were within their rights to take his license away from him, though they could not issue a citation being on private property. We're in OH. Just wondering if anyone had experience, knew anything. We don't need to repeat the obvious concerns. Yes he is older, yes he is hearing impaired. But I despise ageism, and that cannot be the only factor playing into this....I realize the safety of all is a concern as it should be, but also have concerns for his independence and potential depression which could be the end of him...that's how much he values it.
