Just after 11:30 one night last May, F. Andrew Oldfield, then a 16-year-old sophomore at Polytechnic High School in Pasadena, was driving home from a teen-age beer party. While rounding a curve on Linda Vista Avenue, he lost control of his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro and slammed on the brakes. The car spun off the road, smashing into a freeway sign and a tree before skidding to a final thunderous crash against the concrete base of a light post. "At the time I wouldn't have told you I was drunk.

But the letter badly misrepresents actions the Orange County Transportation Authority has taken to increase mobility in Orange County. The OCTA is protecting Dial-a-Ride group services for all senior citizens on trips to senior centers, to nutrition sites, and to destinations which provide these able-bodied seniors with independence.
