The President of the AA has labelled government proposals to place a ban on young drivers from carrying anyone other than family members as passengers as "extremely impractical".

It is something we think is extremely impractical,” he said. “We think it is sometimes useful to have a designated driver, who takes three mates home rather than having them travel in separate cars.
I can't see how this will be enforced. How can you tell whether somebody in the car is a family member or not? What family members are included? Do they mean someone older? What is their role?
These things sound reasonable but in practical terms they are very tricky
