Which one of them was on their cell phone? Or maybe both? Walking while texting: criminally stupid. Driving while texting: criminally negligent.

Well OK then. Probably not texting. Maybe time to retest older drivers who want to keep their license?

Michael Austin is a registered user.

In California, drivers licenses are renewed every five years, until age seventy. At age seventy, drivers must renew in person, taking a written test and eye exam.

Not exactly Michael. You can renew consecutively twice in 10 years. After that you must go in person to DMV for a vision test and thumbprint. This is the law regardless of your age. Not sure about age requirements on written test.
