Driving is not something that should be based on age, but on ability - testing should be done periodically on every age - the states that test only after multiple accidents are defeating the purpose - test before the accident! Also by testing, it takes the decision away from anyone in particular - it is very difficult to explain to your parent why you feel he/she should no longer be driving, even if the doctor recommends it, without resentment. Just as a driver under the influence of alcohol thinks they may still be safe, so might an elderly person who does not recognize their deficits.
