Coroner supports raising driving age

Plea to raise driving age to stop 15-year-olds killing

Article in The Press, Friday 17th October 2008


I wonder if there's too much debate on this topic on the society? I tend to believe that most people think is a good idea to raise the driving age. Does anyone have information about polls related to this issue?

Another topic that I find very interesting is the one mentioned by one of the persons that respond to the article. He says: "While we're at it lets change the ... stupid rule that left turning traffic must give way to right turning traffic at intersections and bring NZ road rules in line with the rest of the planet." Never seen anything like this before and gives an impression of total caos.

Yes - organised chaos!
