First off, let me say that there are a lot of really bad driver's out there and from my experiences women seem to carry the percentages. Louisiana, especially New Orleans, could possible be the worst.
Now to take this topic on a little tangent, I always wondered why people over the age of say 65, or whatever age you want to make it, don't have to retake or at least affirm their driving skills every so often. I mean no disrespect whatsoever to the elderly but the facts are that older people loose coordination, vision, timing, reflexes etc. etc. and these skills tend to degenerate at an exponential speed. The bottom line is that if you are incapable of driving, you should not be on the road and you are more of a danger to others than to yourself anyway. This being the case, I think it might be a good idea that driving skills should be periodically checked when a person reaches a certain age in an attempt to keep the roads safer. Thoughts?
