  老年人一向被认为是最安全的司机群体。他们一般不会在交通高峰时段上路,发生事故的机率也比年轻司机小很多。可是越来越多的老年司机在英国被撤销驾照了,原因是什么呢?请听
Judith Moritz 的报道:

  licence驾照

  But more of them than ever are being stopped from driving for
medical reasons。 In 2011 just over 10,000 over-70s were banned because
of their health。 By last year, that figure had risen by a third to
nearly 13,000 drivers。

  Motorists over 70 are considered to be amongst the safest on the
road。 Many avoid rush-hour and late-night driving and are said to cause
fewer accident-related injuries than younger drivers。
