The Tel Aviv District Police call center received initial reports of reckless driver around 2 pm. Several police cruisers were immediately dispatched to the area and slowed down traffic on the highway in order to avert a major accident.


Police quickly spotted the motorists in question and ordered him to pull over. Upon examining the man's papers, officers were surprised to discover that he is 92-years-old.


"I must have been confused, I'm rushing to a friend's birthday bash at Ichilov hospital," the man told the stunned police officials.


Given the severity of the offence, the elderly man's license was revoked on the spot and he was referred to a medical examination that would determine whether he is fit to continue driving at his age.
