Re: Proposal for new driving test regulations post initial test...

Over the last few years I've had cataract ops done in both eyes. The op works on replacing the old lens with a new plastic one, so in theory it is fixed focus to an agreed prescription. My old eyesight was rubbish and I couldn't be adjusted to full 20/20 with the new lenses but to some intermediate ...

The standard test doesn't include field of vision. In fact you can pass on eyesight with tunnel vision in one and being blind in the other. Frightening.

Re: Proposal for new driving test regulations post initial test...

With modern technology, it must be easy to touch the screen where the [potential] hazard is I think that this would be a serious...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

Unfortunately a dash-cam is a witness looking fixedly ahead (or astern) with tunnel vision.
