Re: Victoria Liberal Party reponse to my road policy query
The problem that P Platers havge with these restrictions is that older drivers just don't care.
A ban on high performance cars in my book sounds like an attempt to reduce hooning through outlaw. I have thought about this and a year or so ago posted my views on FF.
If we need to "limit" hooning in the early stages of driving learning and development, then in my opinion, the best option would be to require young drivers of High performance cars to hold comprehensive insurance on the vehicle. This would allow the car to be accessable, while providing a useful "after the fact" protection for other road users, especially considering statistics for under 25s being on the road, therefore represent a higher proportion of accidents. Of course, the deterant would be in the premium required to insure the car, and of course, and we all know how the insurers work in relation to grey imports and mods etc.
We could always have a tax or a Latham Levy, but that will of course just end up in the governments coffers again.
