    What is the max age for an expeditor? How old is the oldest driver that you are acquainted with? Just curious :)

      I think 80 is the oldest I've run across, as well.

      Good question, I would hope that old age would give one the wisdom to get off the road. Have not heard of a age limit. The DOT health card may be a issue, if required.
