Proposed Qld P plater laws

Well I'm sure most of you in Qld would have seen the news tonight regarding the laws they want to pass for Provisional Licence Holders and having them in place before Christmas this year!

I have no problem with having to display P plates but I think a 10pm curfew and passanger limits is going a bit too far and I can't see it dramatically reducing the road toll or being effective at all. Unless they make exceptions people who work after 10pm will have to find other arrangements to get to and from work etc.

Whats everyone elses view on this?

Re: Proposed Qld P plater laws

Well in some ways you have it easier than NZ as the p plate equivelabt licence has a 10 pm curfew (although its not strictly enforced and you are only allowed to carry other people if you have a parent or caregiver.

Re: Proposed Qld P plater laws

i dont mind having to display p - plates.

and i dont mind a 10pm curfew IF it applies to every single p-plater AND all people who have recieved fines, been booked, been photographed etc after 10PM at night

and
people who have had accidents

and anyone who has a car

and anyone who has a license

ah you get my drift.

Re: Proposed Qld P plater laws

Wonder if this will affect me considering im about a year away from my opens?

Oh and another thing a little unrelated

Im planning on moving to Sydney next year assuming I get this job I want, what are the laws regarding your license and displaying P plates? Im planning on getting a shit box car rego'd in Qld to take (the Fairmont will stay here, i only plan on going for 12months) But can I legally drive a Qld rego car with a Qld license without having to display P plates and all that?

Re: Proposed Qld P plater laws

After driving for a couple of years now, I've discovered that the worst drivers out there appear to be the middle-aged passive idiot drivers who have absolutely no idea how to drive. I've never had a problem with "young drivers" yet. Sure the younger drivers are more likely to give the accelerator a squirt now and again, but it's not bad driving just fun driving.

After passing my provisional licence, all the bad habbits once again I have learned from the middle aged drivers. Not signalling left off a round about, not bothering to come to a complete stop at stop signs, these were all habbits I learned were naughty in driving lessons, but the driving for 20 years crowd majority do, so i figure whats the point.

Personally I think if any plates should be forced to be worn, it should be for compulosoray tailgaters, as they seem to be the major cause of vehicle accidents. Won't be expecting this to implemented anytime soon though.

Re: Proposed Qld P plater laws

For Sydney, u do need to display p plates. Also u need to abide by there p plate laws, that is do no more then the maximum speed limit of P platers. That all depends on which level of P u are in NSW. For more info got to;

They need to train drivers better, not penalise them more!
