Having done a roadtrip to Newcastle over Easter I was left wondering as to how wise it really is letting Learner drivers on the Highways and Freeways in such a busy time. I know they need the experience but there were a few dozen of them out there and while they were plodding along at their required 80km/h it created all sorts of havoc.
This was particularly true as the traffic became more dense, chaotic, confused and self absorbed as you got within about 100 km of Sid-ah-knee.
So what do you think, is it wise to have Learners on the Highway/Freeway at such busy times? I had more than a few close shaves as someone dived into the right hand lane after discovering tailgating the Learner didn’t make them go faster (credit to the learner, headbutt for the tailgater) and then sat on less than 110 for ages, refusing to get back into the left hand lane so faster cars could pass.
I also wonder what ever happened to keep left unless over taking?
