John Breaux is a cyclist who was hit and killed last year in Louisville. The woman who killed him was sentenced to 16 years of probation, 200 hours of community service, and is not allowed to drive anymore. Since I've been hit multiple times I don't want to digress into a rant about drivers who kill cyclists, but I will say this is a great example of why senior citizens shouldn't be allowed to drive.
More importantly, the city of Louisville loved this man so much that they erected a bronze statue of him downtown.
