"AARP Jump On Board"
Its true that drivers 65 and over are being singled out, but it is in their best interest relative to their health, safety and welfare in calling for mandatory comprehensive drivers testing.
Further it is a proven fact that senior drivers have a significant decline in their physical and mental abilities behind the wheel at the age of 63.
Even the American Medical Association stated in a 1995 study that senior drive should be required to appear at mandatory motor vehicle departments to renew their drivers license.
I am highly recommending that the AARP advocate and support legislation in all of the states that calls for the comprehensive drivers testing of all seniors behind the wheel with bona-fide drivers tests, road tests, vision tests which will improve the safety of its members, other seniors and all drivers.
"AARP quit playing politics with our seniors lives"
This is not the time for the AARP too be playing politics with the lives of any American citizen particularly with our senior population who is the most at risk in the instant case.
" Quite frankly I'm tired of ducking and dodging these senior drivers on the roads."
We need State Legislators to finally act and behave like Representatives of the people and "Take the Bull by the Horns" and stand-up for all drivers by sponsoring and passing this much needed legislation in the area of mandatory testing of all drivers over 65 that would include comprehensive road test, drivers test, and vision tests every three years.
*Let's make all of our roads safer for all drivers by passing this much needed legislation in the various state capitals
