Taipei, March 7 (CNA) The age limit for taxi drivers will be raised from 68 to 70 next
month, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said on Tuesday.
However, those over 68 years old will be required to pass a cognitive ability test to prove they can work as taxi drivers, the ministry added.
The MOTC explained that according to available statistics taxi drivers over 65 are not at greater risk of being involved in traffic accidents, which is why the ministry is encouraging more senior citizens to remain in the job market. [FULL STORY]
