Tell me what you think of this.
In Idaho, once you have a driver's license, unless you lose it you just go in and pay the fee... they check your eyesight... and away you go with your new license.
Frankly, I believe that at least a written test should be part of the renewal process... just to make sure you're still on top of the rules of the road. Some rules - like stopping at a red light or following posted speed limits - are obvious. But others, not so much.
Furthermore, after significant consideration, I'd like to see all motorists have this hypothetical question posed to them:
If you were to cause a traffic collision that produces a fatality... would you rather that the victim be you, or somebody else?
Maybe if they had to give that some consideration, they'd be ever-so-slightly less inclined to drive while intoxicated, or while yappin' on the phone, or to blow through that red light. Or, maybe not.
