  • Basing someone's ability to drive only on their age is very discriminatory and unfair.

    My father was driving up to the age of 88. Of course the reason he was able to do this was because at that point of time he was living in Costa Rita. Once her returned to BC, his driving license was immediately taken away from him. He never has an accident and drove from one end of North America & S. America to the other. There should be other ways to evaluate a person's driving besides their age!!!

  • Because they are people too.

    They deserve the same treatment we get and shouldn't be treated any different. I think that if the elderly cant drive then why should teens be able to drive. They are at high risk of dying too. Elders have a lot of experience with driving. They know how to be responsible on the road.

  • I believe that old people shouldn't drive because

    Seeing problem at night because it be too dark at night and even with the head lights on it's still dark for old people to see. Also tir
    edness because old people are allways tired because if they are tired they might crash and put there self in danger. Last but not least driving alone sometimes if old people drive alone they might fall a sleep or might even crash for accidentally falling a sleep at the wheel. P.S if you have a old person out there make sure you check up on them daily.

  • Elderly are normal people, so why not?

    In my opinion, the elderly should be allowed to drive. I think this is so, because they are more experienced, and they are careful most of the time. Should we start taking younger people off of the road, just because they have a family history of heart attacks? And to alot of elderly, driving might be one of their last bits of independance. Would like to live in a home with a 24 hr care doing everything for you, and not being able to do anything by yourself? I think not!

  • I think old people are cool.

    I have never seen an old person cause an accident. What's the support for the claim that they lose their mental faculties? 82% of old people drive the way they eat and that is carefully and methodically. 20% of old people drive fast, and that just gets the there quicker.

  • No,they are more likely to get in a car crash

    Drivers aged 75 years or older have a higher risk (per distance traveled) of being killed in a car crash than any other age group. In a study released by highway traffic safety administration in 2009, statistic shows that 16% of traffic fatalities were among people age 65 and older. According to a Carnigie Mellon university study, "The facility rate for drivers 75 and older is four times higher than it is for teenagers who are usually pegged as our most reckless drivers." this proves that there are more risks in elderly people and that they are dangerous on the road. Therefore they are more likely to get involved in a vehicle crash.

  • They should drive !

    Elderly or not, if they're capable of driving then why not? Most driving accidents involve young adults and teenagers. Should they not be allowed to drive either? It's an issue of experience and maturity in their case and an issue of physical ability in the case of elderly drivers. Not all old people should be allowed to drive but at the same time not all young people should be allowed on the road, either.

  • Age is not the Issue

    There is no magical age at witch the elderly can not drive beaus ability deteriorates at different rates for different people. Imposing a rigid maximum age is to inflexible. A more flexible means is to administer regular retests to drivers over a certain age and require a retest if an individual is in a fate accident or two to three with in a years time. There is no magical age at witch the elderly can not drive beaus ability deteriorates at different rates for different people.

  • Age isn't the Issue

    In general old people are less likely to cause accidents than young people. They frequently go to the Doctors office and are checked for eyesight, hearing etc. Also elderly people rarely drive recklessly but rather they drive slower and driving slower is not unsafe unless it's taken to an extreme.Put yourself in there shoes and imagine if you were that age and you were forced to have your drivers license taken away. I don't think we would be to happy either because we would needed to be transported everywhere we were going.They also have much experience when it comes to driving and so if they are going to the doctors office frequently its completely fine if they are on the road.

  • Age isn't the problem.

    Elderly or not, if they're capable of driving then why not? Most driving accidents involve young adults and teenagers. Should they not be allowed to drive either? It's an issue of experience and maturity in their case and an issue of physical ability in the case of elderly drivers. Not all old people should be allowed to drive but at the same time not all young people should be allowed on the road, either. Our society as a whole is growing older and the average age is rising. Age isn't the problem and we shouldn't take away the independence of the elderly because of common stereotypes that they're incapable, weak, and just too old. In the future when we all live past 100 this argument will be obsolete.

  • They get into car recks more than other people do

    They old people shouldnt be driving unless they take another drivers test because if they do that then there will be less car crashes each year.Thats why old people shouldnt be driving because they cause all the car crashes each year.Or they dont deive at all because in eorupe peoplec older then fifty cant drive anymore

  • Age is just a number

    My grandfather is driving and he is 88 years old. He walks and talks just fine and hasn't gotten into any accidents. He drives to the doctors and to the grocery store, and to church every Sunday. I don't see a reason to take away his driving ability. I think the elderly who have trouble seeing and don't have good motor functions anymore should not have there license. In 2012 there were 515,185 elderly people with a license in Michigan. The problem is only when they can't see very well and they don't have control of their body movement.

  • No they are at too much of a risk

    With age comes
    • A slowdown in response time
    • A loss of clarity in vision and hearing
    • A loss of muscle strength and flexibility
    • Drowsiness due to medications
    • A reduction in the ability to focus or concentrate

    As a result, older drivers are more likely than younger ones to have trouble in certain situations, including making left turns, changing lanes, and navigating through intersections. Driving errors can lead to traffic accidents, injuries, and death. The risk of crashes rises with age, especially after age 75. Studies show that older drivers are more, and less, likely to be involved in certain types of crashes than other drivers. Older drivers are less likely to be involved in crashes related to alcohol use, speeding, and driving at night. But they are more likely to get into crashes.

  • Risk to everyone

    They cause risks on road drivers as they are careless and maybe not as good at driing as they were before, due to old age or even illness..... . ..... ... .... . . .. . . . .. ......... . ....... . ...... . . ........ ......... ................ ........... ...................

  • I don't think they should drive

    Elderly shouldn't be able to drive. They put everyone at risk. Sure teenagers can be reckless but if they need to they are quick to react. Its those spilt seconds that can be the difference between a scare and tragedy.If an elderly person is not physically able to react quick enough that is trouble for everyone on the road!
