As someone who was in a car accident due to a senior driving his car on the wrong side of the road, I do believe seniors should be required to take regular tests to make sure they are cognizant enough to drive. Perhaps it wouldn't have to be every year, but it should be done regularly. And family members should encourage people to stop driving when they notice they're no longer alert on the road.
Yes, seniors should be required to take driving tests yearly, to make sure that they are still safe to drive. Most of the time, the issue would be whether they still have good eyesight. Perhaps a senior would be safe to drive on local roads, but not on highways or freeways where high speeds are required. Annual tests are a good idea.
Yes, I think seniors should be required to take driving tests yearly. There are a lot of senior citizens driving around who can barely even see. I have been put in danger by senior citizen drivers more often than any other group. Recently a friend of mine was walking through a parking lot and was hit by a senior citizen because they were accidentally pushing on the gas instead of the breaks.
For the safety of every driver on the road, seniors should
definitely be required to take driving tests yearly. Once someone reaches the age of 70, motor
skills tend to deteriorate rapidly. A senior
citizen is far more likely to fall asleep behind the wheel and crash than a
Seniors are known to have a number of health issues that could make them dangerous drivers in higher proportion than younger people. It would make the roads significantly safer if everyone could be sure that all drivers could see clearly and had total control of their cars. In this case, safety comes first.
I don't think that they need to take a driving test yearly, but that they should taking a driving test more often then every 10 years. Seniors can have a lot of things that effect then in 10 years, but having them do it every years seems like a bit much.
Seniors should not be required to take driving tests yearly. This would be a waste of time and resources for the government and it proves nothing and would help nobody. Seniors that can still drive do not pose a threat to anyone and most of them are still able to drive reasonably.
