Time to treat senior drivers fairly 2

As I was leaving a party recently, the host turned to an older person and asked if he was OK driving.
Oh, I dont drive at night any more, was the cheerful response. His wife had taken over, he explained, as he no longer felt comfortable driving after dark.
I thought how very sensible he was. Ive noticed many senior drivers self-regulate in some way.
Some give up driving on the 400-series highways. Others dont drive in bad weather. Still others only drive a couple of times a week to events close to home on routes theyre familiar with. Some just voluntarily quit altogether.
Conventional wisdom says that as the baby boomer demographic ages, the growing number of aging drivers on the roads will become a crisis.
Sudbury has set up a snitch line, so people can anonymously turn in bad older drivers
