  • Limit Young Drivers!!!

    75% of them drive like jumped up little knobs with blasting music and big jap can exhausts.

    Those of you who ride bikes will know your limited to what you can ride in your first 2 years.

    So why dont car drivers get it too?

    All drivers below 21 limited to Insurance group 8 or less.
    All new drivers above 21 limited below group 10 or less

    All for the first 2 years!

    TBH it would cut the amount of accidents as we wouldnt have prats in fast cars causing crashes!

    Before anyone tells me any kind of crap excuse. Doesnt matter how safe you are it sthe other ***** out there. Im almost 21 and i would of abided by this rule quite happily.

    Off the soap box.

        is it because you were jealous when you were younger that people were driving nicer cars than you???

        sorry but i personally think thats a stupid idea, some of us work hard and like to reward ourselves with the cars we have allways wanted, and honestly speaking having that much respect for your car makes you want to look after it, hence why its people that buy crap cars that are most commonly crashing.

        you would fit in well with the goverment with ideas like that

                And to blow a hole in your theory the insurance grouping doesn't solely collerate with speed, it's based on theft, costs to repair and other factors even NCAP ratings as well I believe.

                You would be better working off a horse power limit, but that doesn't stop someone driving like a tool unfortunately

                  not really at 18 i had a brand new car on a brand new registration plate all bought and payed for by myself and my own jobs wages lol .. so no not really.

                  and what about some 17 year old who buys some proper old banger but its gt a 2.8l v8 in it for example?

                  indeed mate i would. But at least at 21 your an adult. at 17 your a child. Bikers are limited so why not cars?

                      Deffenately lots of idiots older than 21 driving ridiciously....makes me mad that insurance for them being over 25 30 will be loads cheaper than mine !!! Crash in 1st 2 years should require a licence review!! I for one got my vxr when I was 20 and have only ever been involved in accidents previously in my last car involving 30+ women!!! Most rushing kids to school!

                      I would admit the quality of drivers under 20 is appauling! And for once not all just boys to blame had a fair few young girls Driving on my bumper and as for the one that reversed into me twice whilst on the phone and drove off I would love to find as she was absolutely stunning

                        im coming up 17, and when i eventually pass my test i can guarantee that i won't be a knob on the road because i don't want to get my self killed at a young age.

                          To be honest mate this would not work. My first car was a 1.1 saxo and I drive that like a complete k*ob.
                          I ve grown up a fair bit now but no matter what car your in if you drive like a c*ck your going to do a lot of damage.

                            I think its because it would be so hard to police and control with the things you could do to get round it, like putting a redtop in a 1.2 corsa and horsing on and insuring it as a 1.2...

                            they try to stop it by pricing insurance so high for young guys so they cant get insurance, it worked for me i couldnt afford it but young dudes seems to be able to afford a vxr and the insurance at 18-21.

                            I was 23 before i could afford to insure anything decent! Probibly glad it worked out that way as im still here
