Give Me the Keys, Dad's Emily Yoffe wrote, “Give Me the Keys, Dad” by starting with a story of an elderly couple who passed away after being involved in a car accident. The husband, Gordon Yeager, 94, was the driver and his wife, Norma, 90, were taken to a hospital where they died while holding hands. The story goes on to give quotes from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety regarding senior car accidents, but it also states that seniors are still safer drivers than teenagers.
