Elderly Driver Testing for License Renewal

Elderly drivers are too often responsible for fatal accidents behind the wheel. For the safety of all drivers and loved ones alike, elderly driver testing must be implemented more frequently for everyone's protection. Please sign this petition to increase testing frequency. People over the age of 65 in the State of Massachusetts get a new license every 5 years and the only thing they have to do is submit a valid eye exam. They are not required to take a driving test more responsibility needs to be taken by the MA DMV because elderly who are failing eye exams are being passed because the DMV employee feels bad to deny these people a drivers license. This is a dangerous practice that endangers lives. It is our goal to change this law, so that people over the age of 65 must have their physical driving skills re-tested every 2 years in order to keep their Massachusetts Drivers License. Skills change as we get older and we must do everything we can to keep our roads safe.
