London, September 29 (ANI): A man from Britain, who turned 100 this week, marked 84 years and 2.5 million miles on the road without a single accident.
Additionally, Arthur Whitaker has never had any speeding tickets.
However, his only motoring offence was a fine in the 1950s for having one number missing from his licence plate.
"People who say that pensioners shouldn't drive are talking rubbish, I am still very comfortable behind the wheel at 100," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
"I started driving a motorcycle when I was 16. I can't remember my first car but my all-time favourite was the Ford Cortina. I had about half a dozen of them. Almost every job I've had involved driving. I used to do 45,000 to 50,000 miles every year as part of my engineering job.
"I don't do anything like that these days and can do without my car now, but I don't want to. There are some clowns on the road, though," he said.
His one fine still annoys him.
"They charged me 7s 6d (37p) for that. I couldn't believe it and have never forgotten it," he added. (ANI)
