Police to test drivers’ eyesight and confiscate licences if they fail

Police to test drivers’ eyesight and confiscate licences if they fail

Police have launched a crackdown on drivers with poor vision to address road safety concerns.

In September, police officers can pull over motorists and test to see if they can read a number plate from 20 metres away. Drivers  who fail to show that they can pass the test will have their driving licenses immediately rescinded.

Make sure you are getting regular sight test from your optician, especially if your prescription changes.
