War on the young motorist

Banning newly qualified young drivers from night-time motoring, drinking any alcohol or carrying passengers of a similar age could save 200 lives a year and lead to 1,700 fewer injuries

More insurance companies could offer schemes that meant cheaper premiums for those young drivers who, for instance, did not drive late at night.
These were monitored by black boxes in their cars.

The ConDem petrolhead government has absolutely no interest in saving 200 lives a year, so this suggestion is going nowhere.

As for black boxes in cars – this is a shocking infringement of liberty even greater than speed cameras.
