Mandate driving test every 4 years
New incoming drivers
Refresher for existing drivers
Perhaps we need to revisit our education on driving. Many of use took our driving test many moons ago but have never been tested since. After so often DMV requires us to check our eyes why not implement a law to have a driving test.
Rules of the road change new signs become unfamiliar so it makes sense.
Now how does this help is as follows:
the elderly are still on the road some who driving skills are excellent but with age we do lose our reflexes and time in reacting. So they past the driving test they can stay on the road. Should they not give them a window to return and attempt again (second failure) they must wait 6 months or whatever to attempt again. many have observed some elderly individuals who you question in your mind “should they still be driving?”. Now it may sound like a penalty but there are ways to get around still being elderly some have STS transporting or even Uber funds so they do not lose their independence.
The international drivers are another concern, they think they still drive in their origin country. They don’t obey laws (ex: yields/ do not block intersections) We can weed out the weaker of the drivers by having their skills tested.
Young drivers get nervous in driving. Driving test would give them reassurance and training to become safer drivers.
All others on the road just need to refine skills of driving.
Driving test needs revamp to put more educated drivers to follow the rules laws and be safe.
