    Ontario does have in place testing for senior drivers at age 80 and above.

    I would like to know the statistics for number of people killed by inexperienced young drivers compared to people killed by seniors.

    This is a nightmare scenario for anyone with an aging parent who refuses to acknowledge that their ability to drive is diminishing.

    McGuinty's response is short sighted and it hurts families. I'm grateful that my father lives in a province where mandatory testing is necessary for seniors over a certain age. If you pass the test, no problem - you keep driving. But if you fail, it helps the families and doctors of drivers who should no longer be on the road to convince their loved one that its time to move to the passenger seat.

    Wasn't the news full of stories last week about the increasing numbers of seniors with dementia in the upcoming years? There are more and more seniors who simply don't have the capacity to make an impartial decision about their own driving skills.
