Limits welcome on new drivers

Two-thirds of the public would like to see restrictions placed on recently qualified young drivers, according to an RAC Foundation survey.

Even two in five young drivers would back a form of graduated licensing.

Those surveyed were asked whether restrictions, possibly lasting 12 months after a driving test has been passed, should be placed on drivers aged 24 or under.

In the poll, of 2,101 adults, 66% showed support for limits on the number of passengers new, young drivers could carry and 61% backed a ban on driving between midnight and 5am.
