Wyoming Elderly Driving Restrictions Rejected
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Legislators aren't drafting restrictions for elderly drivers, who have to pass the same vision test required of younger drivers when they renew their licenses.
Drivers young and old in Wyoming have to pass a vision test either at their doctor's office or at the transportation department to renew licenses every four years. They can renew by mail once every eight years.
Rep. Dave Zwonitzer, R-Cheyenne, chairs the committee that examined the issue Tuesday. He said none of the committee wanted to move forward with drafting a bill to strengthen requirements for the elderly.
Mary Lynne Shickich spoke to legislators on behalf of AARP Wyoming, and said "age itself is not a factor in a crash."
