Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Do yo feel there should be a Road Traffic Rule for Driving Age Upper Limit i.e. Old people who are above 65 and Above should not be allowed to drive private and self owned vehicles ?.

Do you feel because of old age eyesight, the chances of accidents happening might be more o the road and because of this Road Traffic Office should come out with this rule of prohibiting them to drive vehicles on the road ?.  

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
I have no comment on this.  There are tons of statistics related to driving age which you should first consult but this is outside the area of Electrical Engineering!

Have a nice day.

By the way, relating to a question from you some while back, here is an invention you might be interested in for your colleagues in India; a very low cost microscope.  Read about it from MIT here:

Let me know your thoughts about it.
