Part of the arrogance attached to driving is very much aligned with the 'right, not privilege' notion: 'I passed my test, I'm set for Life!'

Voting is the province of the elderly. Repeated testing would cost a lot of old folks licenses. Don't expect the government to move on this one.

As much as people look down their noses at the boom of e-bikes on our streets, they're the only thing that makes me hopeful our state of affairs could change. E-bikes provide an alternative to people who are no longer fit to drive and lack the health for a bicycle. Maybe E-trikes would be even more attainable, since they wouldn't even require balance. If somebody can no longer be trusted behind the wheel of a multi-ton vehicle, perhaps they wouldn't maintain such a death-grip on their licenses if they had access to fifty kilos of low-speed electronics.
