Could V-Plates Be Introduced For Tourists On Our Roads?
An Aussie woman is proposing a way for drivers in unfamiliar surroundings to warn others on the road.
Suzanne Jones from Tasmania found herself frustrated during a trip to Queensland's Sunshine Coast when she struggled to navigate her way around.
"I had a really bad experience with really discourteous drivers," she told talkback radio in Hobart.
"You often see a person trying to get across a lane quickly, they're obviously not knowing where they are going."
Ms Jones has suggested that introducing V-Plates would let locals know to exercise caution around tourists who aren't familiar with the area.
They wouldn't be enforced by law, but rather a "voluntary identifier" as a courtesy to other drivers.
Ms Jones believes that V-Plates would inform other drivers to "allow a little more space, courtesy and a friendly wave" who are struggling to drive.
