NASHVILLE, TN — It can be a touchy subject, but how do you begin the conversation with an elderly loved one about their ability to drive?
A new law, if passed, could take the guessing game out of it, according to WSMV.
State Rep. Mark Pody, R-Lebanon, is proposing a new bill that would call for anyone 76 years or older to take a vision test when applying for a new diver’s license.
According to the bill, a note from an ophthalmologist confirming the ability to drive would also suffice.
Lawmakers will take a look at the bill next year. If it passes, it could go into effect as early as July.
