Elderly people drive too slowly in town

Published 8:20 am Tuesday, May 4, 2010

I am a student at Albert Lea High School, and I just started driving a couple months ago. The most irritating thing about driving through town is the elderly who drive slower than the speed limit.

It would be different if they drove 5 mph under the speed limit, but they’re going 15-20 mph. It’s not the most fun thing driving behind slow drivers when you’re trying to get somewhere.

My pet peeve that I want to talk about is the most, if not all, elderly complain about how rowdy teens drive and that we shouldn’t get our license this young.

If you were to ask high school students, they’d say its the elderly who need to retake their driver’s license test.

Just a little advice, speed it up and stop complaining about the people who actually drive the speed limit.
