Old People Driving

I remember the horrible case of the old guy who plowed into and killed a bunch of people. Normally I'm for tough punishments, but I'm not sure what the point would be here:
George Russell Weller's daughter has told a judge that her 89-year-old father is "dying before our eyes" and should receive probation for killing 10 people and wounding 73 when his car roared through an outdoor farmers market three years ago.

In my view, deterrence for acts of this type would best be accomplished through new laws testing the driving skills of people over a certain age. Let this guy go.
