LETTER SENT TO AN AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPER
It’s about time the authorities did something about older drivers. For too long they have caused havoc by hogging the left hand lane, sticking to the speed limits and halting at “Stop” signs, causing great inconvenience and preventing others doing what they like.
Another concern is by avoiding fines they are not doing their bit for state revenue and therefore placing a further burden on younger drivers.
Until older drivers can prove they are proficient at weaving in and out of traffic, driving while texting or talking on their mobile phone, tailgating, using drugs or doing wheelies they must be banned from holding a licence.
