I agree, graduated licensing seems to be the way to go. It's true that young drivers need to be coached initially. Not all, but many.
I can see a bit of frustration as well, over it. Can't say I blame you, but you guys shouldn't take it out on each other...
Not having been there, I can't really comment on what happened. But inexperience can be just as dangerous as too much experience.
One extreme doesn't know better, the other figures they know it all!
I have to watch for the latter, as it's all too easy to take things for granted.
Along with the graduated licensing to bring new drivers on to the road safely, I'd like to retesting for the rest of us, every 5 years. Just to make sure we're up to date on the rules of the road and haven't developed bad habits.
I had a few driver training courses, including skid school (which is a lot of fun!) and I've discovered something about my skills in every one.
We all hate it when an accident happens. You really want to have fun, drive a motorcycle. You have to assume no one in a car can see you, because there's enough there, that don't...:eek:
