    Sorry but Granny needs to be held more accountable other than just revoking her drivers license.

    I am 85 years old and drove to the DMV three days before my birthday to renew my license. In Wisconsin, you can renew your license on line until age 65. After age 65, you have to renew in person to pass the vision test. I thought I was home free until the DMV personnel noticed that I had an oxygen converter – at that point I was given medical forms for my cardiologist and pulmonologist to fill out. When I returned with the completed forms, I was informed that they were not accepted because my primary care listed the date of HIS last examination and it was over 90 days. Even though he listed the dates of my cardiac and pulmonology exams, I had to return a third time after a visit with my primary care physician. The third time was a charm and I now have a driver’s license for the next 8 years. I don’t think I will live that long with all my medical problems, but I received a letter from DMV that I will have to provide certification each year in the future. My response is – I believe this is a very good law, my only complaint is that I did not get the forms to fill out BEFORE I appeared at the DMV. Competent physicians (and all 15 of my doctors are excellent) are booking appointments 6 to 12 month out, the copay is about $50, so these requirements should be made in advance. I only hope that I will be as smart as my grandmother – she stopped driving about a year before she died of a massive stroke at 75. She said her life was not the important issue, but if she had a stroke while driving she might take the life of another who had many years ahead. I see my doctos about every 3 months, and if one of them tells me I should not drive – I WILL LISTEN. All old people should do the same.
