Anyone heard of this in Parliament? just stumbled on this one...all I can say is glad I live close to Detroit for my older years...less backroad travel to get to the border to drive to Florida.
*****************
http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_ ... illID=2244
*****************
The bill amends the Highway Traffic Act to add a new section which creates a seniors' driver's licence. The minister may issue a seniors' driver's licence to drivers who have reached 65 years of age, who elect to hold this licence and who meet the requirements set out in this bill. A seniors' driver's licence is subject to the condition that the holder is not permitted to drive a vehicle on specified highways. The bill also provides that any particular test necessary to obtain the seniors' driver's licence will not require driving on the specified highways. There will be more details in the future.

A senior driver's licence is subject to the condition that the licence holder is prohibited from driving a motor vehicle on the following highways:
1. Those parts of the King's Highway known as Nos. 400, 400A, 401, 402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 407, 409, 410, 416, 417, 420 and 427 with posted speed limits greater than 80 kilometres per hour.
2. All of the King's Highway known as the Queen Elizabeth Way.
3. Those parts of the highway known as the Don Valley Parkway, the Gardiner Expressway and the E. C. Row Expressway.
4. That part of the King's Highway known as the Conestoga Parkway from its westerly limit at its intersection with the King's Highway known as Nos. 7 and 8 to its northerly limit at its intersection with the King's Highway known as No. 86.

They're restricting seniors from driving on roads that are statistically the safest in the province?? :shock: :shock: :shock:

Statistically senior citizens get into collisions mostly at intersections controlled by traffic lights and signs. Maybe the province should look at mandatory re-testing every few years instead of banning them from the 400-Series highways? Oh wait... sorry... that would make sense so it would never be done. Disregard.

You haven't been listening to Fantino, "Speed Kills, everything else is trivial"...... "You drive faster, you die faster"......blah, blah, blah. And if they are not driving they are walking....and in the GTA you know what that means.......TARGETS!!!! Maybe the Gov't is trying to reduce the amount off CPP it owes by knocking off the old guys one at a time........Oh, that's cold. End Sarcasm.............

:shock: :?: Seems like some Southern Ontarian has forgotten that the land north of Barrie is actually inhabited. For example, according to the MTO's official map (http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/travel ... s/Map5.pdf, N24-N25), a senior living on route 12 near Twelve Mile Bay will not be allowed to leave said roadway. Also, once Hwy 69 between Sudbury and Parry Sound is 4-laned and becomes Hwy 400, it looks like seniors will be trapped in the North, lest they pass through Michigan via Sault-Ste-Marie or make the long trek to via North Bay on Hwy 17.

This is beyond absured.

Well, it's optional, so that's why I think it's not contrary to the Human Rights Code, but I don't see what the incentive is...? Did I miss that part?

It seems like more paperwork and bureaucracy for no real results or improvement in safety.
