Motorist's Health Checks

So the proposal is for those drivers over 70 to be cajoled into taking a health check-up (for a fee of course - £80 according to the Daily Telegraph).

As one approaching his 70th birthday in the next few years, might I possibly suggest that those of us of 'mature years' are more circumspect on the road than the young, that we may just not be as reckless?

Forgive the cynicism, however I suspect this is another excuse for an increase in bureaucrats to monitor this scheme, should it come to pass - even the creation of yet another quango?
