A new study has shown promising results from a Florida law requiring older drivers to take a vision test before renewing their licenses. The study says that death rates from car crashes have dropped 17% amongst drivers over 80 since the implementation of the law. However, researchers are quick to point out that they haven't pinned down what exactly about the law has reduced the death rates. Still, I think we can all agree this is very good news.
