Potential DUI Pulled Over

I'm 61 and haven't driven in a few years not sure if I'd want to even if I had a vehicle.

I agree there should be driving tests annually mid-eighties on up. A friend, 103, just took hers and passed with flying colors. Not all elderly are like that.

Potential DUI Pulled Over

I hate to say it but there's little difference between a DUI and an elderly impaired driver. My neighbor, 96, just went into a nursing home. She was driving up to last week. Unlike most elderly drivers, she was a speed demon. She had few cognitive abilities left and could barely walk or turn around without falling. Yet, she was driving. Another friend is 95, had a stroke that left her with impaired speech and mobility. I saw her at the grocery store last week and she didn't see me standing right next to her. I can't imagine how narrow her field of vision is. I think we need mandatory driving tests after 85. I will be there soon enough myself so I am not being ageist.

FYI, anyone can (and should) report unsafe elderly (or otherwise impaired) drivers to the DMV. There is a form to fill out, or you can mail a letter with your reasoning.
