Re: Should the speed limit for learners rise?

whats your thoughts?
When I was a learner I never obeyed that rule (hell I didn't know about it until I went for my P's). I drove with my parents to interstate destinations at 100/110km/h quite often during that 2 year period.
Does it even get enforced?
Personally I believe its a crap rule - and everyone should drive to their experience and comfort level. An L plater that only has 1 month behind the wheel probably won't feel comfortable at 110km/h on the open road. However someone thats almost 18 thats done a lot of long distance driving probably won't have a problem with this.
