As a p- plater, i am strongly opposed to the introduction of a curfew system by the NSW goverment.
As such, i have drafted a letter to Carl Scully (the man behind the madness) and i am sure you would like the oppurtunity to voice your opinion. so simply insert your name, and add a few comments (if 100 identical emails turn up, it wont be taken seriously) and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
we don't need stupid comments, but thought out answers are the go. we are already stereotyped enough in society as it is, we dont need to make it worse.
Thanks for your time guys, hopefully we can retain our rights. (below is the draft)
Dear Mr Scully.
My name is (insert name here)
I believe that the proposed p-plate curfew is not an effective way of helping to control road deaths, and a more effective option would be to focus on driver training.
I think that the introduction of limits on vehicle engine capacity and power to weight ratios will affect many families who have young drivers. Many family cars such as Ford Falcons and Holden Commodores have 4.0L engines, and by restricting cars such as these a financial burden will be placed on these families, as they do not have a car for their children to drive, and may have to pay out more to fund public transport.
I also believe that it is important to note that many p-plate drivers are on the verge of being able to cast a vote for the first time. As a large group of young Australians, this proposed policy could have the potential to significantly impact their choices on the day.
I find it ironic that at age 18, we can go to war and fight for our country, become a parent, vote for the leaders of our nation, but we cannot drive our cars after 10pm.
Thankyou for your time,
(reinsert name here).
