Should restrictions be implemented on young drivers to prevent them driving high powered car such as the BMW M3 in this tragedy?

    They should have the same restrictions as motorcyclists have to suffer,these days.

    There are plans to speed limit all new cars but whenever they change something about cars, if your car is older than the law change you can still use it, for example if your car was built with no seat belts you can drive it around like that. Bull bars are also banned but if your car already had them they can stay on, another example.

    Yes there should be restrictions, insurers should not insure any vehicle for a recent driving test pass that is more than around one litre. with the engine size limitation advancing with experience

    Restrictions should be put on them driving any car until they are at least 25 and then only under supervision until they are 30. Our insurance would go down dramatically.

    I have no sympathy for these drivers who are reckless, nor for their passengers as they get into the car of their own free will basically to show off.

    A disproportionate number of young drivers are killed on the roads at night and the time of day may have been more of a factor in this case. A relatively low-powered car could reach enough speed for fatal consequences if it comes of the road and crashes into a tree.

    There were plans early in 2018 to adopt a similar scheme to those in Australia, the United States and New Zealand where newly qualified drivers are unable to drive after daylight or carry passengers under the age of 25 unless they are supervised. The new plans did also propose a restricting the engine size for new drivers to stop ‘boy racers’.
