Driving already requires a-lot of concentration. With elder's sight/hearing problems should they be driving? They're either too slow causing other cars to be delayed D: or too fast o_o
Its really quite dangerous for them =/
They have to drive its not like I'm saying that they're not allowed to and we should strip their driving license o_o thats just evil, but is it safe for them?

What's your view on Elder people driving? :p

AHHHH You are evil Nooni wanting to take licenses from the elderly!!!

No really though, i think we should let them keep theirs. IF we dont, we will have to be the one taking their old asses everywhere and that would be a pain.

I agree wholeheartedly. It's incredibly dangerous for the elderly as well as for the rest of the people. I really don't think that they should be driving because #1 they have sight/hearing problem and #2 slow reflex. Those are recipes for disaster :O

I don't think it's safe for them.
I think either there should be a retest at a certain age to see how well they can drive still or the government should provide some sort of senior transportation. But since we've got enough money issues on our hands, I'd stick to the retest as senior only transportation would be quite expensive and I'm not quite sure how it would work anyway. My gram is almost 70 and she drives almost 100 still, I can't count the number of times I've ridden in the car with her and feared for my life.

Scooters? Thats like a fucking death trap. All that old wrinkly skin will flap in the wind and get in their eyes, and its over for them.

one day we will get old like them as well ...so don't be so harsh....long as there is no health problem then they can carry on driving...if u want to drive fast then go on track racing, only idiot race on the street.i'm not a brilliant driver but safety always come 1st nice car is for show off not too fast ..otherwise ppl can't see your (blink blink) logo

i think there should be an age limit. i mean yeah its not safe becuz their eye sight is bad and their reflexes are slow. there should be an age limit and like a special test on like your eye sight and your relfexes. idk i feel uncomfortable in the high way seeing an old grandma driving. not safe

I think after 65 there should be a periodical (like every 3 or 5 years) that they get re-tested, and I'm fuckin baffled why the state allows people that are 90+ to be on so many prescription medications that they can hardly even blink their eyes and still lets them drive. They're WELL beyond the intoxication level of legally drunk, there should be prescription medication limits too. Like.. if you're 80, you shouldn't be allowed to be on 2 Xanax bars, a Darvocet, and a Thorazine pill at the same time and still drive at highway speeds. Wtf...
