    the DMV should take every persons license when they turn 75 …. retest to get it back … then every 90 days retest until they die , crash or kill someone…

      Is this not a little harsh. Some older folks know their limits. For all you know the lady lost control of her car because some teenager or drunk driver ran her off the road or had a flat tire.
