New South Wales Roads Minister Michael Daley said the "unacceptable" level of P-plate
offences might lead to compulsory driver education classes.
Drivers who fail to complete the extra training would be forced to continue to use P-plates
after the probationary period and failing to do so should be an offence, said Cameron.
Among them are the compulsory use of P-plates
(for probationary) for a period after passing the test, lower legal blood alcohol levels, compulsory professional tuition, restriction to low-powered vehicles, restrictions on night-time driving and on carrying passengers, and the possible introduction of a second practical test at the end of a probationary period.
The move is seen as so urgent, the society wants the Government to abandon plans for P-plates
Elaine is backing the Sunday Mail's Stop the Carnage Campaign, which calls for drivers under 25 to take the Pass Plus test, wear P-plates
and for a limit on the number of passengers they carry.
But 68 per cent felt newly qualified drivers should display P-plates
for the first 12 months.
The Mail's campaign demands under-21 drivers must display P-plates
with only one passenger allowed and Pass Plus tests for under-25s to teach advanced motoring skills.
We also want P-plates
on cars for the first year after they pass their test.
