I would never advocate yanking licenses but maybe they should be tested more frequently after a certain age.

You NEVER know what can happen, in a day.
This fella was just minding his own business, probably on his way
to a class, or just coming from school, judging by the backpack.

This is a good reason to know where you're going, after you die.

Wow! The poor guy just could not run fast enough. How is it he is still alive? That is incredible.

Incredible footage! It just wasn't the day he had to face up to his eternity.

Did you notice that he was walking against a red light?

'Princess', I've seen 16 y.o. drivers who drive well, and 75+ y.o. drivers that drive well, and a whole lot of others who don't. It depends on the driver.

This is exactly why I think the legal driving age should be 18 instead of 16, why I feel the tests should be more difficult, and that we should have to retake a road test every 8 years. There are just too many lives at risk for the testing to be as easy as it is. And the whole no recertification thing just doesn't make any sense.

2 true stories about this, and one observation:
a relative of mine was getting senile, but, she didn't know it. Her driving became quite dangerous, and she ran into a couple of cars, before she was convinced to stop driving. It was hard for her to give up her independence.
another relative of mine, her mind sharp, and her reflexes good, voluntarily gave up her car, because she had a heart condition, and was scared she might one day have a heart attack at the wheel, and kill someone, because of her vanity.
observation: teen drivers are sometimes, (SOMETIMES) so busy listening to music, or flirting with other drivers, or drinking, eating, talking on cell phone, or driving intoxicated or high, that they should be required to be tested MORE OFTEN, perhaps, every 6 months, than adults.
