Would you support S Plates for the Elderly?

Feb 7, 2024 | News

Yesterday, I participated in a conversation with Oliver Peterson on radio station 6PR Perth. “Should we have S plates for senior drivers? We have L plates for learner drivers and P plates for probationary drivers.” I say no!

Hear the conversation below.
