高齢者にはこんな車がいいのではないでしょうか

 

 A mother and her daugther were killed in the terrible car accident caused by a 87-year -old man.  He drove a hybrid-car "Prius".  It is well-known for "Prius missile" on internet. Surprisingly, the car hit a garbage truck and made it turn on its side.

Some measures are urgent to reduce car accidents caused by elderly people. I think the government should set an age-limit for senior drivers. In my opinion, 85 year old is the best. 

 

In addition, the government should make a regulation so that seniors can choose their car from some options. Small size cars, so called "K-cars" are good for elderly people.

They don't need high performance vehicles like cars which run over 100km/h and weigh more than 1,000kg.

 

I recommend three cars for seniors.

 

For active senirors living in rural areas

For high-society seniros livinf in urban areas

Finally, this is my recommendation.

COMS is the electric car manufactured by Toyota Auto body. It runs 50km on a charge and its maximum speed is 60km/h.  Car inspections are not necessary and tax is very low. It's the best choice for seniors.
