New Hampshire Senate Sends Governor Medically Unfit Drivers Bill

The AP reports the New Hampshire Senate has sent Gov. Maggie Hassan a bill “that would protect New Hampshire doctors and other medical professionals from lawsuits if they report someone as unfit to drive.” The Senate voted without debate Thursday to pass the House bill, which is noted to have “the support of the state branches of the AARP and AAA and the New Hampshire Medical Society.” The AP further points out that three years ago, New Hampshire “repealed a law requiring road tests for drivers 75 and older that AARP, AAA and other organizations opposed because it was based on a person’s age, not ability to drive.”

Among other sources also reporting the story are New Hampshire Union Leader, and Concord (NH) Monitor.
