Seniors can take the bus

Re: Driver testing is designed to fail seniors, Oct. 27 – Nov. 2

As a man of 67, I’m all for making it difficult for older drivers to retain their licenses. If they find things like touch screens and email a challenge, how will they manage the ever-increasing difficulties of driving in today’s congested traffic? Cars are one of the last things old people can still CONTROL and that is what makes giving them up so hard. There are many safer alternatives: shoe leather, taxis, buses, scooters.
