You really wanna know what's scary? Look how many people can get a driver's license! I've seen quite a lot of them on the same roads as me, and quite frankly, reckless drivers and vehicles kill more people than anything else I know other than diseases here in the US. Think about that for a few minutes. New drivers take a written or oral exam, then the eye exam. Unless you are changing to a different endorsement, you never have to take another test...even if you move to a different state so far as I know. I haven't taken a driver's test in some 29 years or more...just go every four years, pay them, do the eye exam, and I'm out of there with a new one good for another four years! I let my commercial license expire six years after I moved from Kansas to Arkansas simply because they raised the fees, and I didn't need it. I haven't taken a test for DL since I got my very first matter of fact!
Just reserve a spot for me on this boat.Like the responses above, I appreciate and share your concern, but the last thing that I ever want is more regulation.
