The London Evening Standard has its own story on the proposed restrictions for new drivers.
Its says that three-quarters of the public think new drivers should face restrictions after passing their tests. Three quarters also agreed that there should be restrictions on carrying passengers.
Over half believe that there should be a minimum 12-month learning period before they can take their driving test., and similar numbers support a late-night curfew and think the driving test itself should change.
Nearly half of all 17-year old males have accidents within their first six months of driving.
Meanwhile, the bleeding hearts out there continue to oppose the suggestions as being unenforceable, and as being detrimental to the lifestyles of the little darlings whose lifestyles are such that they want to go out and kill themselves in their cars.
