H.3287–Testing Requirements for Elderly Drivers

Hi Will,

Do you know the status of this pending bill filed by Senator Brian A. Joyce?

Mandatory testing requirements for elderly drivers (age 75 and over) does not seem unreasonable, and could prevent vehicular tragedies from occurring in the future.

I‘m curious to hear your position and thoughts regarding this issue.

  1. Keeping Us Safe is a national company that has developed the “Enhanced Self-Assessment Program” for senior drivers.

    This individualized program has been designed to serve as a valuable tool in helping older drivers (and their families) make appropriate decisions regarding the future of ones safe driving career.

    If the individual is a safe driver, we provide him or her with strategies on how to remain a safe driver as they progress through the aging process.

    If driving retirement is the appropriate decision, then we provide the individual (and their family) with acceptable alternatives, resources and a very specific plan to ensure a smooth and successful transition from the drivers seat to the passenger seat.

    We also offer two separate presentations for your group or organization:
    – A Safe Drive Through the Aging Process, and
    – Adults with Aging Parent Drivers

    Please visit our website http://www.keepingussafe.org or call toll-free 877-907-8841 to learn more about our exciting and unique programs for senior drivers AND their respective families. We can help!

  2. Other states have mandatory testing for
    Seniors, but I think the age is higher.

    For example, Illinois is 85.

  3. I think that people are living longer and healthier lives. I think that 75 might have been thought of as elderly at one time, but no longer. I would increase the age for mandatory testing requirements to 80.
