How old is too old to drive?

The other day I was driving in the fast lane on a major highway. As I drove, the car behind me came at top speed flashing headlights. When the car finally sped past me I noticed a frail looking man possibly over 90 on the driver's seat.

I think when old person drives a car alone is very dangerous. The driver too old to drive when he/she is 60/70 years old.

I don't think actual age matters that much. I've seen 85 year olds that could drive as well as a 40 year old and I've seen 20 year olds that scared me to just watch them. We probably need stricter driving tests and I think everyone should have to take a test to get their licenses renewed. That would eliminate those who were not able to safely drive because of age or health.
