I don't think there should be a set age...but there should be a set age where testing is mandatory...
Personally, I think that after 65, drivers should have to renew their license yearly (though at no cost), and should have a standard form, signed by
their doctor, indicating that they are free from conditions that might hamper that priveledge....
i agree with gazrok on this one, they should still be able to drive, but at some point, regular vision, hearing and physical tests should be
required to continue allowing them to have a driver's license.
My mom takes care of sick elderly people in Pennsylvania. She told me one time that they just get a form in the mail and then the state issues them
another license. These are people who are bed ridden and most can't even walk, let alone drive. I agree with that it should be a yearly test to see
when to take that priviledge away. But, then you get into people being like that's not right to make the elderly have to walk 5 miles to the grocery
store. If we did this then public transportation would have to get alot better.
