Re-test­ing isn’t just an age thing

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

It is a very sad – but iso­lated – case of an 85-year-old driver who killed a woman by mount­ing a pave­ment. I per­son­ally agree that 70-year-olds who want to drive should prove that they are still able and com­pe­tent to drive safely and not en­dan­ger other peo­ple.

Why leave it at over 70, though, when you have young­sters who have not long have passed their driv­ing test with a to­tal dis­re­gard for other drivers or pedes­tri­ans? Then you have peo­ple who drive around us­ing their mo­bile phones and, even worse, tex­ting. Also, the drunk drivers who get their li­cences back – why not make all of these peo­ple when caught take the driv­ing test again? Mike James, Gwent
