NSW Roads minister Michael Costa has released information about “appropriate balances” between safety and convenience for P-platers in New South Wales.
Under the announced restrictions starting next month P-platers will be unable to drive vehicles with “eight or more cylinders, turbo charged cars and cars with engine modifications” “unless they have a work-related permit or live in remote country areas.”
Naturally, the NSW opposition are complaining by saying that the measures don’t go far enough. “Opposition roads spokesman Andrew Stoner says compulsory driver education in schools is vital in reducing the number of road deaths.”
I know the ACT has Road Ready in year 10, and I thought NSW had something similar…maybe I’m wrong.
One thing I can’t work out is, are ACT P-platers driving in NSW exempt? Do NSW P-platers have the same restrictions in the ACT? Will we have people on the border saying “You can’t drive in NSW with that, but leave it here, you can borrow a golf buggy”
