Driving license in jeopardy
Last year, 10 percent more elderly people were subjected to a mandatory test at the CBR after dangerous driving behavior. This test should determine whether they can keep their driver’s license.
In the past year, 1,589 people over the age of 75 had to take such a driving skills test at the Central Bureau of Driving Licenses (CBR), according to new figures from that institute. It reports that A.D. This is an increase of 10 percent, because last year this happened to 1,436 people. These are elderly people who were referred by the police because there was doubt whether they were ‘in control’. This can happen after a collision or other noticeable traffic behavior. Nearly 600 of the elderly who had to go to the CBR were over 85 years old.
