I’m 66 years old.  I drive 30,000 to 40,000 miles/year.  Yet, I continue to see… or become acquainted with more… people whose driving in noticably impaired by the mental/physical aging process.  Is it okay to let the impaired drive, just because they need the independence?  Is it okay to let the impaired drive until they crash and kill someone?  What would be a solution to getting those impaired off the road, while allowing those who are able to continue driving?

(Also a test to see some of the features of the new discussion board.)
