P plater curfew!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone else hear this on the news a few days ago???
In one of channel 10's news breaks inbetween ads, they said that the queensland and victorian governments were considering imposing a curfew on L plate and P plate drivers (between the ages of 16 1/2 and 19, restricting them from driving with more than 1 person in the car, after 10 or 11 pm.
This is total BS. What year is this, 1926? I cant begin to comprehend what goes through the heads of some of our so called 'leaders' sometimes. there would have to be a 1000 reasons why you might need to have more than 1 person in your car after 11pm.
-go out to see a movie, it finishs at 11pm, how do you drive your girlfriend or mates home?
-you and your mates all work late nights at Coles? how do you drive home?
its total BS.
If this even goes close to making it through parliament i will personally drive my car through parliament house, after 11pm, in protest.
Oh, i nearly forgot, the apparent reason for this curfew is to try and reduce the number of fatal accidents that occur late at night, involving P-plate drivers.
so essentially what they are saying is that despite the fact that i have never been given a speeding, parking or seatbelt fine, have never been convicted of drink driving, don't take drugs, dont drink excessively, have not lost a single point, have never been given a warning, and have never been involved in any accident, incident or near miss (except for last summer when i hit a kangeroo on an outback highway), what they are saying is that I am an 18 year old menace to society, and should not be driving my well maintained car, with anyone else in it, after 11pm.
