The one thing I did think was how stupid it is that anyone can get on the road to start with, without a medical and go through their entire driving life potentially without ever having one. Just based on the numbers of drivers on the road, there is a far bigger risk to my mind from the people who have never been medically assessed.
That's not to say that those of use who have drank and drove shouldn't have a medical, of course we should as a duty of care, but to put the focus solely on that group of drivers carries a risk of missing far more.
Absolutely! It's shocking how surprisingly easy it seems to be. Even in Eastern Europre they have to go through extremely difficult procedures just to get on the road which includes plenty of classes on defensive driving, First Aid, a medical, theory exams and then you can start practising on the roads! These countries put us to shame in terms of safety!
