Recently the Land Transport Department (LTD) made an announcement regarding matters relating to road taxes, blue cards and driving licences.
It's a good move except for the one that requires certain tests for over 70-year-olds before renewing their driving licences.
Before the Land Transport Department made this decision did they come across any incident where the 'Wargas Emas' was involded such as speeding, breaking traffic rules or committing any offences against the traffic laws of Brunei compared to those below 50 years of age, especially the youth 18 years and above?
Can the LTD provide any case examples of such actions detrimental to good driving made by senior citizens?
Even recently, just a few weeks ago, the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports praised Brunei's senior citizens, paid tribute to them and urged the rest of the population to treat them with great respect, to have them as role models as they have proven to have served the country well before and after they have reached their golden age.
This was said during the recent 'Hari Warga Emas Kebangsaan' celebration since the senior citizens were found to be more law-abiding than the younger generation.
