Re: Should P's Drivers have restrictions?
I dont see the problem with having passengers, your going to have them when your off your P's. Sure older, resposible people, and ive heard it from people on the forums, look back on their youth and say "boy i did some stupid things" but did it stop as soon as you got off your P's?
I think power restrictions are a good thing, but its not exactly hard to have a car that is on, or just under the limit and then modify it so its over the limit and still look like its unmodified... people will find ways around it so i dont see it as being a viable soloution.
How much power you have doesnt dictate how stupid your going to be behind the wheel, hell ive been airborne in my xy wagon, and in a corolla, and in an au falcon wagon! NONE of these vehicles would be considered high powered, but you can still get in to trouble in them, the difference with my experiences were that it was in a controlled environment, at an autocross track. Having said that ive also done stupid things in a corolla in uncontrolled situations, and i'll admit that i tended to give it more of a hard time than i did a XR8 ute that i drove...
its all about driver attitude, not the drivers car.
