Its also politicaly tough to go after the eldery as they are a strong voting block.
excellent points.
When I lived in NM, they said that approx 50% in southeast NM didn't have insurance. Don't see how that's possible, but this seems to be a common issue. If you're caught without insurance, you are given a fine...both issues do not have stiff enough penalties.

Firstdown, you hit the nail on the head. The AARP would shit a brick if this happened.

Agreed, many states are getting stricter on them.

But while we're at it let's restrict female real estate agents. In NoVA I can't even count the number of times some fat fake blonde chick putting on makeup while looking in the mirror, talking on her cellphone, flipping papers, etc would swerve almost into me changing lanes and speeding all in an SUV with ads to her agency were plastered all over the windows. 66 was ripe with this

VA updated mandatory sentencing for DUIs in early 2005 or 2006. There's a lot more involved in it than a restricted license, sr22/fr44, and a drivers improvement class.

Taking away the licenses of older people would almost require them being cared for by others. They are a huge danger but not all of them have someone to run errands for them, plus they're stubborn and don't like to pretend that they can't drive anymore.

My grandma used to scare the hell out of me, she'd be looking out of the window and drift into the other lane all of the time.

I can top that.

I knew a guy that drove while he rolled joints, drank beer, looked all over the place, and talked with his hands. He drove a car with a stick shift manual transmission in Oakland. Oh, but he would't use a cell phone. It wasn't Al Davis either.

f 66 i hate it there is always traffic no matter what time or day it is, but seriously the way the highways are around here with all the construction, i don't even feel comfortable driving on them at night, there is no way a 16 year old or a 80 year old should be driving on them
