Sorry if this question doesn't really belong in politics and current events, but there really isn't a logical place for me to post it. I would just like opinions as to whether in general most people think that 89 is too old to drive. I know that there are wide differences in the capabilities of people this age, so just for the sake of argument, let's limit it to those who are functioning well for their age. Does a well functioning 89 year old still have the skills to really be a safe driver?Answer Question

Yes, if they are in good health. I'm much more worried about young teen drivers or young adult maies, who drive faster and much more dangerously. The auto insurance companies certainly agree!

It all depends on the physical and mental health of the driver.
In Britain, a driving licence is valid until age 70. After the age of 70, it must be renewed every three years, provided you remain fit to drive. However, you must declare any health problems which might make you unfit to drive at any time and not just when applying for a licence.
