‘No way’ P-platers should be driving on beaches, Neil Breen says
Calls to restrict P-platers driving on Queensland beaches have been raised following the death of an 18-year-old in a four-wheel driving accident on Bribie Island on Sunday.
The Courier Mail columnist Peter Gleeson went a step further, calling for a total ban for P-platers because they don’t have defensive driving skills required.
“100 per cent,” Neil Breen said. “There’s no way, no way in the world a P-plater should be driving on our beaches.
“Anyone can drive a 4WD on the hard sand at low tide; you’ve got to be an imbecile not to be able to do that.
“But the tide comes in, it’s tricky, you’ve got to get off the beach, … on those sand roads.”
