@itvnews would not change anything. Just lead to more 18 year olds being inexperienced at driving and even higher insurance premiums

@itvnews curfew is wrong, some new drivers may work shifts and would not be able to drive to and from work!

@itvnews old people are much worse drivers than young people. Have they considered looking into that?
