Are they serious? This will never pass.

1. A new "zero-tolerance" policy will be instituted regarding speeding. This means that any driver under the age of 21 with a G1 or G2 will risk losing their license if they are caught speeding. No questions asked.
Strict suspension policies also apply to G drivers.
For speeding that causes demerit points, the following rules apply.
- First instance - 30-day licence suspension;
- Second instance - 90-day licence suspension;
- Third instance - the driver must return to the start of the
graduated licensing program (G1).
Whether it be 10 km/h over the speed limit or 50 km/h, we can kiss our license goodbye.
2. Same idea as above with the "zero-tolerance", but this one is in regards to drinking. NO ONE under the age of 21 will be allowed to drive with ANY amount of alcohol in their system. If they are found to have the slightest bit of alcohol in their blood, their license is pulled. Just like that. Gone. The G license no longer allows you to have a blood alcohol level of 0.05. Blood alcohol must be ZERO at all times, or you run the risk of losing your license.
3. This one might be the worst. It involves G2 drivers. At NO point is ANY G2 driver allowed to have more than ONE passenger under the age of 19 in their car, in their first year of G2. At any time. One friend, max. This doesn't apply to family. Thinking of packing a car full of friends like usual? Forget it. They'll take your license.


Third ones the stupidest.

What are the death rates like there, if there pretty bad with young people then fair enough, there stepping up and making sure less people die, however i think the drinking should apply to all ages, just becuase your 30 doesnt mean you can drive better after a drink, that's stupid.

I think the first two points are fine, as for the third, it does seem a bit extreme.

I find these laws to be pointless. Being a 19 year old with their G, I saw that the current laws are fine. No ones going to learn to drive if they get their lisence pulled for speeding. Why should the adults be allowed to speed and do stupid stuff when the kids who are learning arent allowed ot make a single mistake?

I think its bull
this is all because of some parent who is pissed off because his son and a bunch of his friends died while driving drunk. Why punish the rest of ontario's youth for one kid's stupid mistake?

Fuck that, the whole reason I got my G was so that I could drink and drive (responsibly of course).

I really hope this doesn't pass, even though the 3rd point won't affect me, it's still being a little too strict. Did a lot of people die this year from automotive accidents or something?

I'm pretty sure that rule already exists, but maybe not the same punishment.

That's actually a good idéa IMO.
It really shouldn't be allowed to drive with any amount of alcohol in your blood, no matter how low, because, the way I see it, all alcohol affect our ability to observe and react, which again affect our driving skills.
And yes, I do drink myself. And yes, I am over 21 and have a lincense. Infact in Norway, where I live, the law is .02. Alot of people think that sucks.
I still think it's a good idéa. Especially since there are alot of younger kids that for some reason tend to think that because they've had their lincense for, like 3 months, they're the king of the road.

That'd ridiculous. The system should obviously be;
First offense: 30 day ban
Second offense: 60 day ban
Third offense: 90 day ban
Fourth offense: Perma'd

Well, I, for one, am shocked that the only people here complaining are all under 21. It should be like that everywhere.

I like the drinking law... Countries need laws like that, then we'd have no drunk driving. I mean I've heard that in Russia for a first offense, they get a minimum of five years... Other than that, it's a bunch of bull.
#20
In BC, we had that last rule for a while. Same thing, you can't have any more then one passenger, excluding family, with you while you have your N(New Driver license). If it passes its not the end of the world, you'll get used to it.

We have stuff similar to that in Ohio. Any speeding tickets before your 17th birthday result in license remove until then. Also, only one passenger (not family) in the car until you're 17. Also, curfew from midnight to 6 A.M., once you're 17 then it's from 1 A.M. to 5 A.M. and once you're finally 18 the curfew is removed.

That totally sucks, but about packing your car, cops cant tell how long youv'e had your license till they pull over. Just don't be doing anything illegal like speeding or not signaling, and you and your frineds can drive all you want.
