Why on earth is a 100 year old man driving a car?

I just heard about a man who is 101 and drove into a bunch of people outside a school, sending 11 of them to the hospital.
I'm horrified that this man still had a license, and that his children didn't try to take his driving privileges away years ago. Even his daughter in the article said that she's been wanting to take it away for the past year, but did they do anything about it? She then has the nerve to say that she thinks this will be a wake up call... I realize that she only has so much legal ground, but try explaining it to the children that got hurt.
I'm not in her shoes yet, but do have parents in their late 70s and not looking forward to telling my dad that he needs to stop driving. At some point, though, you need to need to think of the rest of the public. I think that after a certain age you should have to renew it every year, and that there also needs to be an age limit.
