CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Legislators aren’t drafting restrictions for elderly drivers, who have to pass the same vision test required of younger drivers when they renew their licenses.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1BKxqTQ) drivers young and old in Wyoming have to pass a vision test either at their doctor’s office or at the transportation department to renew licenses every four years. They can renew by mail once every eight years.

Rep. Dave Zwonitzer, R-Cheyenne, chairs the committee that examined the issue Tuesday. He said none of the committee wanted to move forward with drafting a bill to strengthen requirements for the elderly.

Mary Lynne Shickich spoke to legislators on behalf of AARP Wyoming, and said “age itself is not a factor in a crash.”
