What I do disagree with though, is saying the test needs changing because too many dangerous people get through - no, too many immature people get through, the test is to see if someone CAN drive safely, not if they WILL.
Limiting speed won't work, it doesn't in New Zealand lol, far too many people 'loose' their plates, and they speed anyway whenever they feel like it.
I feel that these kinds of speeds and actions need cracking down on more though, in America it's no tolerance. Instead why don't they head to race tracks and drag strips? Again, in America a lot of police departments have cars for going on drag strips where they race the locals, rather than having it done on the road. Sorry, but you don't need to race on a road.
I know what my car can handle, and yes it's usually a good deal more than the posted speed limit, but the road isn't empty like a race track, other people use the roads, or animals; and then there's debris and poorly maintained roads as well. So that extra speed I can handle, is based on nothing else being there, and it's selfish to go ahead and do so. Just really annoys me, take it to the track if you want to race.
