Hey there Tigerpaw! How's things going? Good to see you up into the 2 million point range. I know that makes ya proud a bit. Hope your Thanksgiving was good. Since we're in the season, a very Jwaye NowelFeliz Navidad/Merry Christmas and a very Bonne Annee/Bloavezh Mat/Happy New Year to you, your family and friends. Hope it's good for all of us. Mine is only better because of working.

I agree. Self driving cars on roads may help all age group irrespective of their condition.

I agree with TigerPAW46. I personally believe if anyone (regardless of age) gets more than two minor infractions or a single major infraction (DUI, major accident, etc.); they need to be retested.

Then it appears that the younger driver's should have had more training. That still doesn't mean that the elderly don't need to be retested. Their driving may be fine as long as they know where they are going and are on familiar ground. Remove them from their "comfort zone" and their reaction times become questionable. I log over 120 miles per day and I know what I see. The stats may be true but something causes me to give elderly drivers a wide berth.

by Godozo  Dec 15, 2014

I'm aware of the issue of inexperience and accidents (you're saying it's youth, I think that you introduce someone at 40 to driving their first few years will be as risky as your average sixteen year old). And I agree with that – one could make a case for yearly testing until five years of active driving. However, there's also the issue of aging and its ravages on perception. One could say that, at fifty, I'm slower on things than a twenty year old would be; however with experience I can anticipate and move in ways that the twenty year old wouldn't be able to. Add another twenty years to me, however, and I wouldn't be surprised that the physical decay would overcome the mental practice and I'd find myself going slower and making mistakes. Plus, the accidents change from someone acting overconfidently to simple mistakes. There's a reason why Florida is so unsafe – lots of older drivers, lots of simple mistakes that don't get corrected because the old drivers are still trying to react
