These things are health issues as far as driving is concerned.
    Quite true, some of these issues would be helped by health screening.

    Don't be ridiculous, that's impossible. Example - a driver risks overtaking and oldie doing 30mph in a 60mph road. The motorist who has overtaken the oldie hits someone coming the other way, meanwhile Mr Oldie drives off oblivious. The fact that insurance policies rise for the over 70s is an indication they are a problem.
