Senior drivers in the news: testing should start at age 70
Seniors are complaining about the new test rules for Ontario drivers over age 80. I think they should begin at age 70, and all should be road-tested. We restrict new drivers, older drivers tend to get lulled into bad habits. That, and the physical deterioration of old age. I have had a pinched nerve, and couldn't check my blind spot. I stopped driving.
There are many horrible drivers out there. I cannot imagine they get better with age, either!
Kelly Egan, an Ottawa Citizen writer, seems to be advocating!
