Police revoking licenses on the spot

Post by billinom8s » Sep 4th, '18, 06:43

There's a few counties doing spot checks on drivers and also doing basic eyesight checks.

If you can't read a number plate at 65ft then they take your license there and then.

Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Hopefully the old bill won't be limiting the eyesight tests to crumblies - I've seen some shocking driving from younger people that can only be attributable to either myopia or plain stupidity. Unfortunately they've yet to devise a stupidity test and threshold, but we can hope....

I've known people in the past who should have worn glasses but choose not to for reasons of vanity - little point if you end up in jail for killing someone you couldn't see on the road [-x
