Cool More than 15,000 P-platers lose licence - NSW, Australia

They definitely aren't screwing about these days...

More than 15,000 P-plate drivers have been stripped of their licence since tougher laws took effect in NSW last July. Figures obtained from the Office of State Revenue and the RTA also show provisional and learner drivers have been fined more than $5 million for not properly displaying their plates.

More than 11,400 provisional drivers were caught speeding and nearly 200 of those were caught speeding more than 45km/h over the limit, News Limited reported on Monday.
Freedom of Information documents show 23,377 drivers were slapped with fines totalling $5,064,745 for not displaying their P or L plates.
Roads Minister Eric Roozendaal credited the tougher laws for reducing the number of road deaths for provisional drivers from 144 in 2006 to 100 in 2007.
"NSW introduced some of the toughest P-plate reforms in Australia - which other states are now copying - and the new rules are working," Mr Roozendaal told News Limited.

Wow, wouldn't it be great if they did it in the states? What's a provisional driver Warp?

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

in .au you go through the following hoops:

1) L-plates ("learner" approx 2 years) - must be accompanied by a fully licensed driver when driving, tougher penalties apply for breaking road rules
2) P-plates ("provisional" approx 3 years) - restrictions on power of vehicle, towing and a few other items, tougher penalties apply for breaking road rules
3) fully licensed - tougher penalties apply for breaking the road rules in victoria

if you have your full license taken off you, i believe, you typically return to driving life as a provisional

prejudices are what fools use for reason
