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".
Talking to the Daily Telegraph, Edmund King said:
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
