Dear Ann Landers,
My 89-year-old father in California is partially blind and deaf, and suffers from dementia. He recently had a heart attack, followed by a stroke and then pneumonia. He is currently bedridden. Three months ago, Dad received in the mail a renewal form for his driver's license. He was informed that he could renew it for four years -- no test involved. Would you please ask the people at the California Department of Motor Vehicles what they think they are doing? -- Outraged in Lexington, Va.

Dear Outraged,
Elderly drivers should be tested before their licenses are renewed. Unfortunately, renewal by mail for all "good" drivers is the practice in many states, and it would be a public service if they would cut it out. If anyone has an idea how we can put an end to this nonsense, I would like to hear it.

What do you think? (or ask a question?)
