Charity critical of ban for young drivers

A young drivers' safety charity has reacted angrily to insurers' attempts to ban teenagers from carrying passengers, reports the The Gloucester Citizen.

They are penalising the majority for the minority.

I think the government should actually be putting it (road safety) into schools and giving the schools more time to educate young people about this.

A lot of my young people wouldn't want to take a parent out with them for the night ... and some haven't got any parents.
