Why on earth do they not insist on compulsory retests or evaluation for fitness to driver over the age of something like 75?
When I used to have motorcycles, I was always having old people pull out on me. In the last few days I've had 2 near misses only avoided as I saw grey hair behind the wheel and slowed as a precaution.
In both cases elderly drivers have come out of side roads from the left without even looking to the right! Once straight across in front of me from a t-junction and the other straight into my path from a side road.
I could almost understand if I was on my bicycle but I was driving a rather large orange pick-up!! How the hell to drivers over the age of 65 qualify for insurance discounts, they leave a trail of destruction in their wake!
