Letter: All drivers over 80 should take a driving test

All drivers over 80 should take a driving test

This from an 84-year-old senior! All seniors, over 80, should be required to take a “behind the wheel’ test!

I think I read somewhere that this would be discrimination. No, it’s just common sense! We lose our driving skills and, without fail, after a horrific accident, the first words out of the driver’s mouth is, “I thought I hit the brake!”

It’s tough to lose our license. My 88-year-old male friend is dealing with these issues. His 98-year-old friend is still driving and, bless his heart, doing great!
