I know I thought that as well, but then I wondered without knowing the gender of the driver how else do you put it? I was taught in English that you should avoid expressing numbers in digits; always spell the word out. Anyway what's a driver in 'their' eighties doing on the road?

I would say they was driving on the road rather than off the road, it's not rocket science is it.
