I just got my NY State Drivers license renewal, and tried to register online but to no avail...Apparently when you are over 35 (i am 39) you need to get a Eye test done before you are able to renew.....Ouch what a kick to the balls that is.........I am getting old

Just renewed my FL license,but took the precaution of getting glasses first if I failed the eye test which I thought I would.It was over ten years and had trouble with the bottom line back then.Renewed it once online.

So I take the eye test and the lady says read the MIDDLE line which I passed no problem..and a solid 8 year renewal..So basically in Fl at age 40 or so you read the hardest line and at 50 or so you read the easier middle lines..

Passengers in cars can use drive up ATMs.  

And it is easier just to leave the Braille on there than to make different keypads anyways.

SO Stevie Wonder has to walk because he is blind?  I think he can afford a chaffeur.

wonder might be able to ride in the rolls, but he won't be able to appreciate it, so it IS wasted on him--but the driver might like it.
