Driving on the duel carriage freeway yesterday sitting in the left hand lane doing the 100kms speed limit when a car sitting in right lane came speeding up and overpassed me doing around 110/115kms, it had 2 girls in it with a big L plate on the front and rear windows……and guess what they were both talking on their mobile phones, they stayed in the right hand lane for another 15kms until they turned right at a set of lights.

You of course wrote down the rego plate no. and the time and location/area, didn't you.
Then inform the Police and they can easily check time of calls etc and your report of it means a little chat with a Policeman/woman.

They may have been practicing their multi tasking ability. Women are better at multi tasking but their cars hit just as hard though.

At least they weren't texting. Maybe they're the smart ones.

If they were doing 10-15 kph more than you over 15 kms how did you see them turn off?

They should have been way ahead, unless you sped up to follow them?

Agreed.

Not that I am in favour of L platers doing more than the speed limit.

I was just this moment tiring to work out how many Km's ahead they would be.

Easy to explain even to you Nutta, by the time I got to the Traffic Lights they were turning green and their vehicle was down the road after it had turned right....................and ARB funny comment from you, your not in favour of L platers speeding but you appear not to have a problem with an L Plater talking on the phone!

Come to Darwin, I get overtaken by at least one car by a week in the 80 km zones doing 100-110km/hr.
Not unusual to get given the finger here as well, not to mention the arms and head out the window yelling.
Gotta love the top end :-)

Much the same in WA lyndon see it every day here, the main point I was making in my post was that the” L “Plater (Learner Driver) was not only staying in the right hand lane and over the speed limit, but she was also talking on her mobile phone, as was her so called driving instructor (talking on the phone also)

Returning from Adelaide to Broken Hill I was on the main North road I had to Drop some item off a Nuriupta so I did not use the new by pass road.

The main North road is a good road but it swaps between 3 and 4 lane s a lot so I sit on the left hand side and take my time I have a long 5 or 6 hour trip so why bust your gutts and stress out, and with so many traffic lights going over the speed limit is a wast of energy and time.

Lady came flying up to me but was not quick enough and got stuck behind me

well you did not need to be able to read lips to know what she was saying and I got the finger and she finally got past me and she had a young 13 or 14 year old female in the passenger seat and she went a few ks and went to left to the shop s

Now all that to save minutes and how can she tell her kids off for bad manners or swearing ( I am assuming it was her daughter) when she has done it her self

are we as adults expected to show the kids what and what not to do as responsible parents and adults

Maybe they were worried about a guy in the left lane stalking them, too scared to stop and were calling for help Cobber?

I'm pretty sure I read that it's no longer an offence to display L plates when the L isn't driving? NSW, ACT? Can anyone confirm?

Bazooka,

I don't think that is correct.
The L plates are to be displayed only when L plate driver is driving in ALL states of Aussie.

Big fines are handed out if you are a fully licenced driver driving when L plates are displayed.

Cheers P&J
