Of course it was! As long as we permit inexperienced kids to drive cars that are capable of reaching double the speed limit they will be tempted to do so. As parents we protect our children while they are growing up by locking the medicines away and hiding the matches, so why is it that as soon as they are old enough to have a driving license we think it's okay for them to be out in a 125kW/tonne missile. I'm not normally in favour of government intervention and believe as adults we should normally be allowed to make our own mistakes, but hasn't this gone far enough? As learner riders we are limited to what we can ride so shouldn't there be more limits on what a p-plate driver can drive? thoughts?
