    Yeah, I feel bad for the guy. At least he is building it into a race car I guess.

    Spotted (Vic)

    Does anyone know what’s going on with the blue 260z 2+2 with a red hood hanging around the Burwood area? I’ve seen it multiple times, first on Highbury road where a copper was checking on the ♀ driver sleeping in the car, next near my house (Elgar road/Burwood highway) and now at the station street/Burwood highway car park (behind Geppetos)? It looks like she is living out of it... I hope she’s alright.

    I agree, always take these figures with a grain of salt - especially those that you have not formulated yourself. I have a mate that worked in the insurance industry and says, like you, he has seen graphs with a distance factor added. When this is added, apparently (as I have not seen what my mate has), the shape represents more of a U then a steady decline, as now the lack of driving elderly folk do and the amount of crashes they're in are related. To me, the U shape is logical, as most young drivers are learning to drive, and finding their limits and elderly folk are slowly losing their reaction time and focus, amongst other skills. The only reason I used the statistics above was because they were from Australia, and in all of the stats/graphs I've seen, fatality numbers decrease as the young drivers start growing up (i.e. when the OP would be legally allowed to drive their car), so I thought it would represent the OP's situation better than foreign stats. NZ Research That's just being silly The other 70% happens during those other times, it's better to do it between 9pm and 3am on Thurs, Fri, Sat nights!@!@!@

    Yeah, definitely a weird one. I guess these stats are about young drivers lost, not necessarily themselves being to blame (i.e. someone else could of been drink driving). Or maybe they wanted that stat to be used alongside something like: or Would of been much better to have a "over the limit" stat though... https://www.thedefenders.com.au/articles/drink-driving-statistics/ http://www.who.int/violence_injury_prevention/road_safety_status/2015/country_profiles/Australia.pdf

    Maybe I'm a 'girl' or a 'wuss', but these restrictions are in place for a reason... Let's not advocate driving cars that have been deemed too powerful for new drivers, I don't want me or my family to be the person/people killed when they lose control. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-01-25/every-road-death-in-australia-since-1989/9353794 https://www.tac.vic.gov.au/road-safety/statistics/summaries/young-driver-statistics Probationary_kit.pdf
