From 1 July 2007 the Queensland Government introduced a new graduated licensing system to reduce fatalities on our roads, particularly among young motorists. Young drivers aged 17-24 are twice as likely to be involved in fatal crashes than drivers aged between 25-59. That is why the Queensland Government introduced new laws to change the licensing system for young drivers.
The new changes introduced by Queensland Transport included the introduction of a logbook system to ensure learners get a good balance of experience before they drive solo on the road. Learner drivers are required to complete 100 hours of supervised on-road driving experience.
The extension of the learner period to 12 months and the completion of 100 hours of driving experience will expose learners to driving in various road conditions. During this time, they gain valuable experience, including driving at night. The requirement to accumulate 100 hours of supervised on-road driving experience before undertaking a practical driving assessment highlights the importance of the learner licence stage and ensures the learner accumulates extensive driving experience under a range of driving conditions before applying for a provisional licence.
Since the changes in law, many young people in state care face many barriers when trying to obtain their driving licence, such as foster carers not having enough time, residentials not having insurance for young people to drive company or youth worker owned cars and the average driving lesson costing $47 an hour and the likelihood of the Department of Child Safety providing an average of $4700 for each young person wanting to access there licence isn't high either.
We have on numerous occassions complained about our main gate either getting stuck or not working at all but for years the problem still has not been rectified.
We have been getting complaints about our cars or motorbikes being started up in the mornings before going to work by the residents at Unit 21. None of the other residents mind as they all work. We would like these unlawful complaints to stop. There have also been complaints of the children playing outside.
During the week the children are in there homes before 10:00pm and yet the residents at Unit 21 still complain and shout at the children. We have had instances where they have repremanded the children in a drunken state and many of the residents have witnessed it.
In clause 11.7 in the "Rosslee Agreement of Lease" it clearly states that "you may not cause or commit any nuisance of the property or cause any annoyance or discomfort to other tenants or occupiers of the building." These tenants are continuously inspecting our homes from outside our windows and causing 'discomfort' to the tenants and their children. The tenants are up in arms about the current situation as we all get along and have no complaints about starting our cars in the morning or at any other times.
At the moment most car owners and children are living in fear of the tenants at Unit 21 due to their unfair treatment and constant complaints.
As anyone who will be signing this knows, 4Kids has purchased the dubbing rights for One Piece, and completley changed the face of this wonderful anime. They changed the music, changed some names, did some MAJOR editing of most of the show itself, changed the dialogue, and gave very low quality voices for all the characters. They practically BUTCHERED the anime. Anyone who has watched the fan sub over at http://k-f.cjb.net knows how great an anime One Piece is, and how badly torn apart 4Kids has made it.
It was never meant to be a kids show. Let's show 4Kids what we think, and let's show them how many people are FULLY against their dubbing plans!
Let's sign this petition to ensure that no more of this wonderful anime is torn apart, so that a more reliable company can prove how great One Piece really is, without changing the entire face of it just for little kid audiences.
