Stan­dards for drivers

Austin American-Statesman - - VIEWPOINTS - Bill Hoglan Ge­orge­town

My Christ­mas wish is the great state of Texas adopt­ing a driver’s li­cense pol­icy sim­i­lar to the con­cealed hand­gun li­cense. One would have to have a back­ground check, at­tend a class and demon­strate their driv­ing abil­ity on a road course and skid pad sim­i­lar to the De­part­ment of Pub­lic Safety site near Florence. Then each 10 years, maybe less, the li­cense would ex­pire and one would have to take a re­fresher course to re­new the driver’s li­cense. Think of the dan­ger­ous, lousy, in­ept, in­con­sid­er­ate and un­car­ing drivers we could re­move from the roads!
