Driving age limit? What do you think...

Yesterday I was helping a 94 year old woman to her car. She commented to me how she never thought she would reach the age of 94. When we got to her car, she couldn't even figure out which key goes where, and the first thing I thought of was "should she even be driving?" What do you think, should there be an age limit? I know each person is different, so it would be hard to cap that...but at some point, there has to be something right?

I believe that after age 65-70, drivers should be retested to see who can keep driving and who should stop. Some older people can drive fine, others are like my grandmother-shouldn't drive, but believes that she still could, so I ended up taking her on any long trips she had to go on.

I agree, test each one at those ages. Like I mentioned, each person is different, so it would be hard to cap that. This woman just scared me because it took her a while just to figure out which key goes where!

That makes sense. They should retest people after a certain age. That could help keep accidents caused by older people down =]
