Keeping elderly drivers safe: Attorney Kevin Seiferheld on Fox 2

Michigan Auto Law attorney discusses elderly driving safety and testing after a Michigan State trooper was killed by an elderly driver

Michigan Auto Law attorney Kevin Seiferheld was a featured legal expert on Fox 2’s Let it Rip, on the heels of a tragic accident in which a Michigan State trooper was allegedly hit and killed by an elderly driver while pulled over on the side of the road.

The Let it Rip hosts asked Kevin: Should older drivers be required to pass reasonable additional tests and screenings before getting behind the wheel?

Kevin’s answer was an unequivocal “yes:”

“[At a reasonable age] We want to test them, not take away the keys. We also want to make it mandatory for doctors to report the (medical) problems (to the Secretary of State).”
