I know it sounds harsh, but I think older drivers should have to re-qualify (take a road test) every 2 years. Maybe starting at age 60 or 65. It would also be a good idea for there to be some kind of mandatory reporting (by medical providers), so that drivers would have to requalify as a safe driver after a major injury, stroke, etc. Kinda crazy that after an initial road test, for most of us in our teens, that we can continue driving until we die as long as we pay our renewal every few years.

Your idea sounds good. But! That would make work for a new batch of civil servants-- maybe in a down economy that's not a bad idea. And but, the politician who proposed the change in the law, forcing seniors to requalify, would probably be voted out of office. Seniors vote and seniors vote in a block.
