Dear Editor:

Our BC Liberal government is playing around with a new venture called DriveAble. It is a scheme which, in its present, alienated form virtually challenges senior drivers at the outset to adjust their mindset to comply with computer images, cognitive tests without warning, out-of-town testing, etc. Totally inhuman and costly.

Where are the statistics to say seniors are a menace on our highways? This is a blatant invasion of freedom within the Charter of Rights. Guilty until proven innocent.

Lets stop this highly restrictive nonsense before more sensible (and sensitive) seniors are wrongfully dismissed from driving. Surely a doctors examination and a driving test (if necessary) in the owners vehicle in a friendly environment would suffice.
