Ok so here in australia its becoming more and more strict with driving, our driving system is:
Learner "L's" is the new driver driving with a full licensed driver instructor. top speed of 80km (bout 50 mph) must complete 120 hrs with an instructor present and beable to pass a driving prac test to get red P's
Red provisional "Red P's" is no instructor but speed restrictions (90 km) must hold a year and pass a prac test to get green P's
green Provisional "Green p's" same as red p's but speed is 100km
the last few years the licenses have been stricter on younger drivers because of all the idiot drivers.
Last night my partners dad was on his ay to work when a young driver sped over a crest and through an intersection and T-boned my partners dads car on the passenger side. he was alone in the car thankfully or the passenger would prob have died.
my partners dad was taken to hospital and running tests till we left at 2am.
the driver, the CAUSE of the accident..... walked away unharmed.
I am SICK of young IDIOTS who speed, drink drive and dont use common sense. these are young 17-25 year olds thinking they are invincable and almost killing other drivers. my dad and two brothers are fire fighters who have attended countless accidents involving speed and lack of common sense.
sorry for the rant but ive had like 4 hrs sleep after the rush to the hospital at 9:30pm
