      He could have had a stroke, heart attack, aneurysm, or some other unexpected event that would not be determined by a driver’s test. Don’t judge without all the facts.

      You’ll have no problem paying more taxes to pay for this then, and then won’t mind having your license pulled when you no longer pass the criteria…
