Not yet but I can foresee it coming in the next year or so.
My dad is 84 and still drives regularly, only does around 5k miles a year, doesn’t drive in the dark if it is at all avoidable and will get a lift from me/someone else if it is an option for any trips.

Are there any waterproof overtrousers available which will fit someone who is tallish and slimmish?

All the ones I’ve tried so far only come in s/m/l/xl sizing so for me to get a long enough leg (34″ inseam) I end up with a waistband which…[Read more]
