Time to re-think restricted licences?

By johnboy 6 January 2009 32

The ABC brings word of Magistrate Maria Doogan’s public musings on the continued provision of restricted licences to convicted drink drivers.

It was brought on by one Corey McCracken, 21, who blew over while already on a restricted licence.

    “Magistrate Doogan said the ACT was the only state or territory that gave offenders the chance to have a restricted licence.

    But she said, given the number of people caught breaking the law, the Government could rethink the privilege.”

Do not stereotype 300 million people tylers, lest people stereotype all cyclists.

Hang on, hang on – how have I ended up the c**k here after copping uncalled for agro from Jonathan Reynolds after making a joke about a f**king steering wheel lock?!

I know a few people who have been done DUI, got a restricted license and been good drivers ever since.

Being done once is usually enough for most people to pull their socks up. A complete loss of licence that may effect their ability to work or care for a family member is too harsh I think for a first offence. A restricted license for first time offenders is a good compromise in my opinion.

Second offence, take away their licence for five years, $5000 fine and community service for 500 hours. That will learn them.
