very true, but we already need to get about half of all our local drivers off the streets.jixxer said:I know for a fact however, that the road test (for cars) in the UK is much harder and much more thuro then the one here in BC. So a harder road test would mean more elite drivers on the road. Correct me if im wrong.

There is a similar system in place here. The more you cause crashes, the more your insurance premiums. The more tickets/driver's penalty points, the more your license....and now that you can't renew your insurance without paying your DPP (shoulder shrug....I know this by experience) the result is almost the same.and this friends, is the basis of facilitated insurance. private insurance has this. bad drivers punished, good drivers rewarded.
I remember an article in "Car and Driver" some years back.michael said:Ever hear "Speed related collisions.....?"
The faster the objects are moving, obviously the more carnage.
I'm a proponent of of "Smart driving saves lives."
Speed, by itself, does not kill. It is the related errors that are compounded by speed...
