Driving “hotline” a concern for seniors

It appears that the Sudbury, Ontario police have set up a hotline to receive anonymous complaints about older people behind the wheel.

While physical and cognitive ability are important to safe driving and are to be taken seriously, this sounds a bit too “big brother” for my liking and smacks of ageism. Perhaps we could use driverless technology sooner rather than later.

  1. This is very problematic for so many reasons. The simple one is that the vast majority oi problem drivers are NOT seniors but YOUNG MEN 18-25 . Why arent they doing the Young Driver Hotline? The Advocacy Centre for the Elderly is looking into this now and I will post more info in next few days.
