Maybe they should approach the SA gauvamunt and get eNATIS installed ? That way, when the kids apply for their drivers licenses, they'll only receive them a few years later ...  ;D :2funny:

Plus, my kids will have to pay for their own insurance.  I will also not just be giving them a car.  They will save up and buy their own cars.  They will be allowed to borrow mine in the mean time, under strict rules... so no jolling out late at night with Mom's car.  When kids have to pay for their own wheels, they will generally be more careful to look after their cars.

I agree!! I have never raced a car (well almost  >:D) I had to by my own car and pay my own insurance and I am really scared of not having transport - so i always drove very carefull...

This is the best way yet!!

NZ government should not even THINK about increasing the legal limit from 15 they should just DO IT without question.
These drivers are a danger to themselves and every other road user. Can we say it enough?

I was chatting to my sister this weekend, she is a remedial teacher.  She said it's insane that the age is 15 for driving, because it's a medical fact that 15 year olds have an underdeveloped brain and cannot think long term - ie. cannot think ahead to the consequences of their irresponsible actions.
lekker sweet as, y'all
