TRAIN KIDS EARLY
I AMinterested in the endeavour by CAMS to promote pre-licence training and to seek additional finance.
My suggestion is that the motoring associations — NRMA, RACV and the like — be encouraged to join in.
Last year, when reading the RACV’s annual report, I felt that rather than continuing to expand its tourist and golfing assets it should do much more in schools towards pre-licence propaganda and training.
Its annual report, Supporting Our Communities, showed $1.5 million had been spent over 13 years, an average of $125,000 a year.
It’s a very small amount compared with a 2009-2010 profit of $63.5 million.
We keep hearing about multiple car crashes involving young drivers.
This is becoming an epidemic and needs to be targeted by a community campaign, as is done for health issues such as smoking and cancer.
