Age is not a significant factor when it comes to driving, according to a breakdown organisation that rejects claims that compulsory eye tests should be introduced for over-70s.

Every day many of the country’s motorists take some sort of medication; it may be a simple pain killer or a more robust drug like a hay fever remedy. However, it seems that some drivers are not aware of the effects these tablets are having on their driving.
According to a recent Be Wiser Insurance poll 70% of UK motorists believe price is the most important factor when selecting their motor insurance policy.
This might not always be the best way of choosing motor insurance, according to Mark Bower-Dyke, Chairman of Be Wiser Insurance:

With motorists having to pay more and more to keep their cars on the road every potential saving is vital. Recent research has revealed that checking tyres could help ease the financial burden of vehicle owners.
