Major new road rules for elderly drivers proposed – curfews and distance limits

Mr Trewhella said: “A lot of older drivers stick within their own locality.

“They go to the shop, the doctor’s surgery, go and see a granddaughter down the road, probably on minor roads with which they are familiar.”

Black box system

If the new proposals are acted upon it is expected elderly drivers will be fitted with telematics devices.

These black-box tools analyse drivers’ acceleration, braking and cornering.
