Watch the cowards on Beacon Hill cave in to the AARP
85 is too late to test drivers
By Walter Brooks
Another older driver killed someone last week, and it was the fifth such accident in the last three weeks here in Massachusetts, yet our representatives on beacon Hill are still jabbering about passing a law to force drivers OVER 85 to be re-tested.
Once again, these small men and women will chose self over service and will in all probability annoy as few voters as possible (and there are certainly fewer over 85 than under), and be responsible for more highway deaths by drivers who should no longer be allowed to drive a car.
A Massachusetts driving license is a privilege, not a right.
Safe driving laws is a right Massachusetts citizens deserve and should demand.
Urge your representative today to endorse legislation to mandate the re-testing of drivers after the age of 75.
BTW, such a law would require this writer to be retested, and anyone who objected is probably aware that they can't pass a simple driving test.
