The state Task Force to Study the Safe Mobility of Maine's Aging Population, whi
The state Task Force to Study the Safe Mobility of Maine's Aging Population, which spent a year studying the issue of safe driving and alternative transportation for the elderly, today will present its proposals at a public hearing in Portland. Federal statistics show that vehicular accident rates begin rising around age 60, and that trend is similar in Maine. The task force has proposed requiring brief exams for people over 40 during relicensing, and requiring drivers over 75 to renew their licenses every two years rather than the current four years. Details, related article on Frances Peabody, 91, of Portland, who has received only one traffic ticket in the 77 years she has been driving.
