So we should ban anyone over 70 from driving
Not sure if I would be for an outright ban but stricter tests I would favor. Was age a factor in this crash?
I just found a new supply of forks!

What do you mean by stricter tests? Does anyone who pays the renewal fees on their Driver's License in any state ever need to be tested again?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You can move to the Tri-State area (for many, that includes Florida) to avoid testing at older ages.

...but they should have testing unless you think that is a G-d given right.  ;)

By CM's logic, traffic rules should be universal in USA etc and would also move out to cover International.

There are no provisions for anyone with Parkinson's to lose either their license or guns.

Part of the anti gun control argument is just this.

Cataracts? license revoked
Joined AA? license revoked, a habitual drinker, can't be trusted to not DUI
Take RX drugs that may inhibit your mental state? license revoked

We will turn into a dystopian state where behavior would govern your life. If you rant online, you'll lose your license.

But why are guns treated differently than cars? I need a gun for self-defense, you can take a bus or train, you dont NEED a car.

Try IL?  :)
I am in a good mood so: https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/illinois-driving-laws-seniors-older-drivers.html

ILLINOIS: At age 75, drivers must take a road test and eye exam to renew a license. At age 81, drivers must renew every two years instead of every four and at age 87, they must start renewing annually.

Unconstitutional!!

At least you are expressing a view that has something related to this tragedy. Unfortunately it would cause more deaths but that doesn't seem to be a concern of yours.

btw how would you feel if they took away your license? for many it would kill them. Why are these things so blanket? Maybe we should make it mandatory for everyone over 80 to get a yearly review if they live alone, they may burn down the building you know!

I wish it was so simple. What if the test admin was a racist? or, what if you nearly passed it but they decided no? and wouldnt let you appeal.
