Except that response times in elderly people are significantly less than those in younger people. Don't give me this discrimination bullcrap, the body becomes less responsive and slower to respond with age. There should be a retest at certain age intervals (i.e. 45, 60, 70, etc) to make sure things such as eyesight, response time, mental capacity, and knowledge of the driving laws are still WNL.Originally posted by: Staley8
I voted no, unless they are going to make a retest for all ages. There is no reason to discriminate against old people over any other age, sex, or racial group. So unless I see proof that they are involved in or cause more accidents I would say they are the same as every other group of poeple. A few old people make the whole group look bad. A few ricers make that whole group look bad. Retest all or nothing I say.
