View Full Version : Florida's worst drivers will have to retake driving test

Florida will soon start sending some of the state's worst drivers back to school.

A new state law will require any motorist convicted of three crash-related moving violations over a three-year period to take a behind-the-wheel education course and pass a driving test, just like a teenager.

The little-noticed crackdown on chronically bad drivers becomes effective Jan. 1. It was signed last month by Gov. Charlie Crist (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/politics/government/charlie-crist-PEPLT007421.topic).

''These people have demonstrated a propensity not only for crashing but for being at fault,'' said Electra Bustle, executive director of the state highway safety agency.

"If we can change even one person's driving behavior to avoid a crash, then I think we'll be successful.''

I know of someone who at 91 retook and passed the FL road test...and was promptly given a 4 year d.l. extension (which he didn't live long enough to enjoy). Ridiculous!
