there are too many old bangers on the road here ,untested and probably death traps! Dodgy suspension, brake at high speed (not necessarily over speed limit) slight swerves can turn into big swerves with an unexpirienced driver.
If a P plater CHOOSES to take out insurance there are cars classed "hoon cars", these are more expensive to insure, so they choose not to bother. If insurance became compulsory here then there would be a few less accidents.
But we all know that p platers are NOT the only ones who have accidents, Daughter and BF were pulled out on the other day by a nice "middle aged man", forcing them to clip the kerb and blow out the tyre. He just drove off!
I think the cars should be power restricted and limited to a 90kph.
Also younger drivers should be made to get liability insurance on top of the rego.
There are a lot of hoons young and old out there but there is also some very good younger drivers as well.
Not all P platers are idiots
I think this may be a topic where the generation gap will apply ..... anyone under the age of 25 will be furious at this decision (as we probably would have been when we were that age) and those of us who are over 25 will nod wisely and say 'it's a good thing'. Probably is a good thing overall with certain caveats/exceptions/etc ......... but I'm sure I would have a different viewpoint if I was 23 with a V8 Holden! Does this mean that I'm now officially an old person?!
