Should people over 75 be allowed to drive.


car accidents involving people over 75 have now surpassed the traditional high risk 16 to 25 year old age group. Should people over 75 be subjected to more frequent testing and possibly be prevented from driving by the age of 85.

    Great answer! I totally agree! I wrote an article on this--my mother gave up driving at the pre-selected age of 70 and, although sometimes inconvenient, neither of us regrets her decision: I sleep soundly knowing she's not driving dangerously!

    "...absolute end of driving..." I totally agree! Testing every one of every age I support, but a blanket removal of driving privileges at a certain age is not fair/American. If someone can drive safely, let them--regardless of their age.

    Agreed! Public transportation is key to keeping incompetent drivers of any age off the road. Some places have this infrastructure, others don't unfortunately. I also agree totally about age discrimination! Regular testing for all ages is key, too.
