I must say this has to be one of the most overt cases of discrimination I have ever heard. This is a very ageist point of view and I think the county and state should be ashamed of themselves for entertaining such an idea. I would tell every bus driver over the cut off age to seek legal counsel for discrimination. Just because one person made a mistake, an entire group of people should not be outcast. If they pass all qualifications they should still be employed no matter their age. Perhaps test them more often due to medically documented reflex delays, but to eliminate them all together is shameful. Remember that these medical findings are generalizations and do not encompass every person. I personally am not a perfect driver and I am a twenty something, how should my peers be punished? Let's not forget that we will all be considered elderly one day, is this how we would want to be treated?
