Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioThere's a new push to get a measure forged into law that will permit family members to anonymously snitch on bad elderly drivers.

It now has the backing of a woman who had her son and granddaughter taken from her in a Murray crosswalk by an 86-year-old driver.

Nancy Ostler addressed a legislative committee and showed them a picture of Don and Gwyn Ostler sharing a coffin. She said the man responsible was already limiting his driving and it didn't help. She says this law, however, would have.

The committee didn't take action, but the bill's sponsor believes he'll have support when it's re-introduced.
