Change Elderly Driving Laws in Florida

We are trying to change public policy in order to shorten the renewal time on seniors drivers licenses. In the state of Florida, residents must renew their drivers' licenses every eight years, and once they hit the age of eighty, it goes down to five years. We feel that they should have to renew their license every four years once they reach the age of sixty-five. They should also be required to pass a vision, driving, and reflex test. According to the CDC, "Involvement in fatal crashes, per mile traveled, begins increasing among drivers ages 70‒74 and are highest among drivers ages 85 and older." We feel that they should start being tested before the fatal crashes spike.
