Will young, reck­less driv­ers ever learn?

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - Erica Mur­ree

PO­LICE have con­tin­ued their plea to mo­tor­cy­clists and road users to slow down.

A mo­tor­cy­clist trav­el­ling on the Bruce Hwy near Mary­bor­ough was de­tected trav­el­ling at 160kmh in an 80kmh zone re­cently.

Sub­se­quently this mo­tor­cy­clist was is­sued with a traf­fic in­fringe­ment no­tice for $1026 and eight demerit points, with an im­me­di­ate li­cence sus­pen­sion for six months.

But what was most hor­ri­fy­ing was that this mo­tor­cy­clist was a P-plater.

He was also is­sued in­fringe­ment notices for cross­ing dou­ble white lines and fail­ing to dis­play his P-plates.

When will this mi­nor­ity of young people re­alise it is a priv­i­lege, not a right to have a li­cence?

What do you think the an­swer is?
