Apparently as soon as ACT L plate drivers cross the line into NSW, they become more dangerous. Earlier this month Urban Services sent a letter out to ACT L and P platers advising them that “… a review of the NSW legislation …” had taken place, and “ACT learner drivers, when driving in NSW, are subject to the same restrictions as NSW learners” (emphasis in original). In particular, this means they get to go a max of 80 km/h the second they cross the border.
Apparently P platers “… are not subject …” and get to go full speed.
Of course, this has a logical rationale related to safety….
