-A Wisconsin DMV worker told a 78-year-old woman she had to walk across the room without her cane before she could renew her license. Her husband objected and asked the examiner how walking without her cane related to his wife’s license renewal. The examiner insisted, so the woman complied, and in the process fell, broke her wrist and was denied renewal.  Now a civil rights lawsuit, and the question has been posed: was this illegal discrimination or careful screening of a potentially dangerous driver. According to the suit, if a DMV worker thinks an applicant needs to be seen by a medical professional, he or she is supposed to issue a 60-day temporary license.
