Los Angeles senior citizens have driving privileges as long as they demonstrate the ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. The California Department of Transportation may place certain restrictions or conditions on a license when a driver's physical or mental abilities decline, but no one has a license revoked only because of age. An older driver also has no special immunity from fault in an accident.
An 86-year-old Sacramento driver made a wrong turn and ended up going the wrong way on Highway 160. The elderly man was aware of the mistake, reduced speed and drove close to the center divider. The driver failed to find a way off the road before there was an accident.
