AAA: Seniors support tougher driving laws
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s latest report on aging Americans shows that senior drivers strongly support tougher driving laws, from bans on wireless devices to ignition interlocks for first-time DUI offenders. The senior drivers also overwhelmingly support greater scrutiny in the license-renewal process for themselves and their peers. More than seven out of 10 drivers age 65 and older favor policies that require drivers age 75 and older to renew their license in person and also support requirements that seniors pass a medical screening to remain licensed.
Gov. Jared Polis announced Thursday the hiring of Dan Prenzlow as the new director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, according to a news release from CPW and Colorado Department of Natural Resources.
