When you come to a stop sign, your first duty is to stop, after which you must yield the right of way. The reasons for not pulling out and yielding the right of way are obvious and the age of the driver is not a legal excuse. 

Geraldine Rietveld, 83, of Hutchinson, Kansas, was killed in a two-car collision that occurred at around 5:39 p.m. on Monday, September 12th. Rietveld had stopped at a stop sign and then just begun to turn onto Highway 163 when she was struck by a Chevy Tahoe driven by Emily Eintrager, 41. Eintrager was traveling westbound at the time of impact. Rietveld died from her injuries and Eintrager was transported to Mercy Medical Center with injuries.

Obviously Eintrager has a valid claim for personal injury and property damages. At some point either we or our children need to take away our driver’s license.
