OT, but the flip side of this is the fact that the 'freedom' and autonomy that our culture grants to the ability to drive, is so dominant that it gets wrapped up in our identity to the point where taking an older person's license away is seen as so damaging to their well-being and sense of self, that health care professionals and MTO employees administering the senior drivers' tests, will often go to great lengths to keep dangerous drivers on the road despite pleas from the family. (Speaking from experience here in case you couldn't tell.)

Get ready for carnage when the baby boomers, the last generation to have their identities so deeply entwined with the ability to drive, hit their 80's.
