    Default Police forces launch new crackdown on drivers with poor eyesight

    "A police crackdown on drivers with poor eyesight has been launched.

    Every motorist stopped by roads police officers from three forces in September will be required to read a number plate from 20 metres.

    Anyone who fails will have their driving licence immediately revoked.

    Data from the tests will be used to improve understanding of the extent of poor driver vision.

    The initiative is being run by forces in Thames Valley, Hampshire and the West Midlands, and is supported by road safety charity Brake and optician firm Vision Express.

    Sergeant Rob Heard, representing the police forces taking part in the campaign, said: “Not being able to see a hazard or react to a situation quickly enough can have catastrophic consequences.”

    He warned that officers will be carrying out eyesight checks “at every opportunity”."

    IMO prehaps the police officer better then give them a lift to do their shopping etc. as they've just declared them a person with eyesight problem and disabled, as surely the first role of the police is to protect the public .
    Think the police chiefs and journalist need to think before they speak or publish articles. A roadside read a number plate at 20 metre is NOT an eyesight test its merely a rough are you fit to drive at that time. they can only stop them driving at the time inform DVLA at ask for a eye test with a qualified ophthalmologist.

    What right do the police have to examine people at the side of the road, when stopped you only have to give name and dob dont answer any other questions or take part in any examination
