Gov. Deval Patrick says he thinks the Legislature will revisit tighter restrictions on elderly drivers in Massachusetts.

The Democrat said Wednesday a law he signed last week requiring vision tests every five years for those 75 years old and older was the best he could get.

He says, “It’s not nothing. It’s not even a baby step. It’s a big step.”

Three days before the law was signed, an 89-year-old driver was accused of striking a 72-year-old pedestrian in a Chelmsford parking lot.

Patrick says he favors cognitive testing for senior citizens, and it may be resurrected.
