Big Ideas: T-Plates

19 06 2013

It seems after a couple of years of driving I’m coming up with several ways to improve the roads in the UK… probably all have been thought of before but still! First there was the suggestion of colour coded paint markings to indicate speed limits, then earlier this week my compulsory indicators suggestion. I have been spending a lot more time than normal inside my car this week, so maybe that explains it!

Anyway, here’s a third – I actually wrote to the Department for Transport about this one when I passed my driving test.

When someone has an L plate, you know it means they’re a learner and so to give them a bit of extra space.
When someone has a P plate, you know it means they’ve recently passed their test and are getting used to driving on their own, and so, again, to give them a bit of extra space and have patience.

Now I don’t know about you, but when I’m driving somewhere new for the first time, I feel a bit like a new driver again, working out what lane to be in, which exit of the roundabout, and maybe making a few mistakes along the way. I think Tourists often need just as much space as a new driver – I’m still yet to try out driving in the centre of London, but the day I do (if ever) I know I’ll want people to have patience with me!

So that’s what I propose, we have L plates and P plates, what about T plates for Tourists? What do you think?!

And just because I think this has been one two many car related posts this week…

What colour should T Plates be?!
