Law could be Taff to take for driv­ers

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

TEENAGERS in Wales could be banned from driv­ing at night in a bid to cut ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing young mo­torists.

Newly-qual­i­fied driv­ers may be barred from driv­ing af­ter dark by a new “Cin­derella Law”.

Young driv­ers would also have a limit put on how many pas­sen­gers they can carry – and have their drink-drive limit re­duced to zero.

The plans are part of a pub­lic health scheme to try and cut child deaths on the road in Wales.

Dr Sarah Jones, a con­sul­tant in health pro­tec­tion for Pub­lic Health Wales, said: “The num­ber of deaths among teenagers in cars is of great con­cern to us.”
