Moises Calo, 28, of Bergenfield was run down in Union City and killed by the wayward car of senior driver Harry Pierce, 80, of Union City. Pierce lost control of his car on 8th Street, hit four buildings, five parked cars and sadly, hit Calo, killing him by pinning him between 2 cars.
It is the opinion of the Jersey City Desk that all, yes ALL seniors 75 and over should be retested every year to keep their driving privileges. We see far too many of these types of situations again and again and again. But woe be to the state or federal legislator who would ever dare to speak up on this and take the lead. They'd be out of a job the next election cycle as the AARP and other senior-interest lobbying groups would have their heads. This is too bad.. For the sake of everyone else, they should be retested yearly.
