A bill that would require drivers 85 years and older to renew their driver’s licenses in person was rejected by the Maryland Senate Tuesday. The unusual result of a preliminary vote came after an intense debate about senior citizens and their drivers that caused some who voted for the bill in committee to change their minds on the floor. Sen. Ron Young, D-Frederick, called the bill discriminatory and an attempt to bully seniors into giving up their driving privileges.
