Give up your car
On reading the story of Mrs Lee, a disabled pensioner, if she is that unwell it’s time she gave up her car (“I feel victimised”, Gazette, September 18, front page).
Running a car, as we all know, costs a lot of money – road tax, petrol, maintaining a car, petrol, the list goes on, and on top of that she has parking fines.
I am sure a local taxi firm could give her a good rate for a year of taking her around, her own driver any time she wants.
No more fines, no more bills for her car, and above all, peace of mind.
I am sure she would feel so much better and could stay in her own home.

Life is too short, without worrying all the time.
God bless you, my love, just do it.
