As a law abiding P plater, I have found that when P plates are displayed, many drivers (including those with Open licenses) behave in a completely unsafe and inappropriate way around P Platers on the road.
Such behaviour includes: Tailgating, engine revving, overtaking at high speeds (near misses often a result), provocative behaviours (in attempts to start an illegal street race). Drivers will also not allow P platers to merge in multi-lane situations.
Having travelled with drivers who are holders of Provisional, Probationary and Open licenses, I have found that many drivers have pre-conceived ideas (most likely stemming from various media reports) about what kind of drivers P platers are. Unfortunately a few people have created a reputation for everyone else with the same licence type.
It has become really unsafe to drive as a RECOGNISED P plater.
This is NOT a proposal to change the licensing system (or the various restrictions) in place in Queensland, but one that requests that P plates DO NOT have to be displayed whilst driving. The various restrictions would still apply, and licenses would still show each persons licensing level.
It would still be acceptable for repeat offenders to have to display P plates (especially those who are place on their Green P's after coming off a suspended license).
Baner Tywysogaeth Gwynedd oedd baner y Pedwar Llew yn wreiddiol ond yn dilyn cwymp y Dywysogaeth yn 1283, mabwysiadwyd y faner, yn wreiddiol, gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna gan Owain Glyndŵr. Roedd y ddau yn ddisgynyddion i dywysogion Gwynedd gyda'r hawl i fabwysiadu'r faner. Newidiwyd y llewod i fod yn rhai 'rampiant' gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna defnyddiwyd y fersiwn yna o'r faner gan Owain Glyndŵr yn ystod ei Rhyfel fawr Dros Annibyniaeth.
O dan y faner yma bu Cymru'n annibynnol o tua 1403 hyd at tua 1410 a gan mai baner Harri Tudur oedd un y ddraig goch ar gefndir gwyrdd a gwyn, wedi ei hatgyfodi yn 1958, rydym, fel gwladgarwyr, ond yn cydnabod baner y Pedwar Llew Rampiant fel gwir faner genedlaethol Cymru a gan fod cynlluniau ar y gweill gan David Cameron a Llywodraeth Lloegr i osod Jac yr Undeb ar drwyddedau gyrru ym Mhrydain, rydym yn mynnu ein hawliau dinesig i gael Pedwar Llew Rampiant Tywysog Owain Glyndŵr ar drwyddedau gyrru yng Nghymru.
The Four Lions Rampant was, originally, the Four Lions Passive flag of The Royal House of Gwynedd in Snowdonia, North Wales. Following the fall of the Royal House of Gwynedd, it was adoped by the rightful heir, the great warrior Prince, Owain Glyndŵr during his war of Independence 1400 - 1421ish and the 'passive lions' were changed into 'rampant lions' to illustrate that the Cymru (Welsh) were up in arms.
Under this flag, Cymru (Wales) was independent between 1403 - 1410ish and, as the red dragon on a green and white background was the standard of Henry Tudor King of England and was only resurrected in 1958, we as Welsh patriots only recognise the Four Lions Rampant as the true flag of Cymru and as plans are being drawn up by David Cameron to have the Union flag or Crest to appear on "British" driving licences, we demand our civil right to have the Four Lion Rampant flag of the Cymric people's Prince, Prince Owain Glyndŵr on Cymric (Welsh) driving licences.
Opened in 2008 Shades Nightclub has been offering lapdancing and is applying to renew its license. The Licensing Act requires objections to be related to 4 key grounds: to prevent crime and disorder, for public safety, public nuisance and protection of children from harm. But the application I am now told is under the Miscellaneoous Provisions Act 2003 which I have been told by a council officer allows broader objections.
Housing is close by, a new student accommodation building is being built very nearby and it is a well known area for student accommodation. The railway station is a short distance away and the High Street is a shopping area including women's clothing. A community office is around the corner, cafes close by, the Hindu Temple is only a stone's throw away, churches are in the area and the internationally famous Sikh Gurdwara attracting thousands of people is just up the road and amongst many wedding venues attracting business into the town.

I have spent all my life living and working with dogs. I know that many cases of cruelty and neglect could be prevented, many dog attacks and dog fights could be avoided with a relatively small amount of education.
We wouldn't allow someone to drive a car without education and licencing however there is no restrictions on the ownership and breeding of dogs, which has left us with rising numbers of them in rescue centers and increased problems with antisocial behaviour and public nuisance. Dogs give us their all, they deserve better.
As per recent reports, the licensing panel of Mansfield District Council imposed a licence suspension of 6 weeks on the Bold Forester following a request by Nottinghamshire police asking the council to review their license. This followed the supposed sale of alcohol to an underage boy, who spent time in various pubs and an off licence in Mansfield, before fatally attacking an innocent man with other youths.
Although we in no way support the sale of alcohol to underage children, we wish to show our support for the well managed and respectable pub we know.
As a driving instructor for many years, I see examples of bad driving, dangerous driving, bad obstructive parking, terrible pedestrian activity, lack of consideration, intolerance, impatience, aggressive driving, total ignorance and stupidity amongst some drivers, lack of knowledge of the Highway Code, lack of attention to safety, and downright nastiness towards ourselves (with learners at the wheel) and with others.
I teach people to drive by the rules, as do the driving instructor industry as a whole, and yet, all around us are idiots, criminals, and fools, and no one to bring them to book. There is an absence of police to enforce the rules and laws, already in existence, and all we have is a seemingly useless parking patrol service, which I have been seen to ignore bad parking.
We need to put the servicing of the highway laws back into the hands of the police. We need something with teeth to bring these people into line, for the general safety of others.
Support "Moments Sports Pub" in its Application for a Liquor/Other Licence. No reasons have been given to justify the rejection of this Application.
This Petition is for all that have been or may still be effected by the current disruption in services by drive test.
This disruption has effected many of our youth and young adults who need their licence for work as well many other day to day uses.
The government and Union need to realize that drive test should be available to all drivers who need its services for work.
The City Of Orillia Needs To Change It's Dog Licence By-Law. The By-Law states that all dog owners in the City of Orillia must purchase a licence at The cost of $50.00, but between January 1 to May 31 of each year, the fee is $30, or if the dog has been spayed or neutered it is then $20. The licence is valid until December 31 of every year.
Not only does the dog owner have to pay for the Vaccinations every year, but they also have to pay for the Licence on top of that which is quite costly to the Dog owner. A one time fee should be sufficient enough to the City Of Orillia, permitting that the dog owners provide their dogs Rabies Vaccination forms to the City.
We need to try to change the law that took effect as of 1st July 2007. The new law states that anyone who renewed they're learner license or applied for it on or after 1st July 2007 has to complete 100 hours logbooked!
Changes for Queensland learner licence holders aged
under 25 years of age from 1 July 2007 include:
• lowering the minimum age of obtaining a learner
licence to 16 but lengthening the requirement to
hold a learner licence to 12 months. Learner
licences are now valid for 3 years.
• gaining 100 hours of supervised on-road driving
experience recorded and certified in a logbook,
including 10 hours of night driving experience.
The worst thing is you are exempt from this if you were 25 or over as of july 1st 2007. Every year after this date the age of exemption increases. eg:
-2008 is 26 years and over
-2009 is 27 years and over
so on and so forth.
The Government stuffed up. Had they actually thought this through properly, they would have realised it would be wise to make it as follows:
This law effects anyone who applies for their learners as of the 1st of July 2007 and people who already had their learners license at the time of this law coming into affect is exempt.
The government's proposal to charge a £50 licence fee for all landlords is a blatant attempt to raise money for nothing.
If there was genuine desire in the government to target and eradicate bad practice in the private rental market, instead of a licence fee that all law abiding landlords would pay, there should be large fines or repossession of properties belonging to repeatedly offending landlords.
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.

Please send the word around, post this petition onto your website, and send it to everyone else you know, and your mailing list.
Kangaroo meeting with Maxine Cooper, Commissioner of Sustainability and Environment, in her office on Thursday 14/10/10, that included discussions on full term rehabilitation for sick, injured, orphaned native Eastern Grey Kangaroos, which Maxine's dept is investigating.
Nora Preston has requested that a new expert advisory committee be David Croft, Nora Preston, Dror Ben-Ami, Daniel Ramp, Keely Boom, to replace all the unqualified non expert advisory committees.
Media release on 23/4/07 www.kangaroo-protection-coalition.com/kangaroo-archives25.html.
These animals mentioned below are all dead, however, the fight still goes on, to turn the site into Wildlife Carers Group proposed city Kangaroo Park and Wildlife Sanctuary, in tribute to the kangaroos that were needlessly tortured to death, under the rspca's watchful eyes, who then inappropriately claimed that this massacre was humane.
PLEASE sign our other petition as well on http://gopetition.com/petitions/save-all-the-kangaroos.html to save ALL the Eastern Grey Kangaroos on the Lawson Defence site (BNTS) from relocation and death, and turn the site into a Kangaroo Park/Wildlife Sanctuary with educational facilities, wildlife hospital, rehabilitation enclosures, etc. Media releases on 13 May 2007, http://canberra.yourguide.com.au/news/local/general/plan-for-three-days-of-death/584324.html, 14 May 2007, http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/05/14/world/main2799551.shtml?source=RSSattr=HOME_2799551, 20 May 2007, http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200705/s1927723.htm, http://www.spa.gov.sa/English/details.php?id=452929, http://news.monstersandcritics.com/asiapacific/news/printer_1309191.php, 25 May 2007, http://www.abcscience.net.au/news/stories/2008/03/07/2182771.htm, 7 March 2008.
These kangaroos have suffered enough and will not survive any relocation, which will cause acts of animal cruelty with this type of research, they must be left alone on the site where they have lived safely for their entire lives.
Nora Preston, The Founder/President of WCG - Wildlife Carers Group http://wcg.awardspace.com began rehabilitating wildlife in the early '80's.
ACT EGK's were rehabilitated in carers back yards, with their fences extended, to prevent them from escaping.
Our ACT (Australian Capital Territory) Eastern Grey Kangaroos were removed off our rehabilitation licence in mid 1980's, to prevent us from rehabilitating our sick, injured, orphaned NATIVE Eastern Grey Kangaroos, (EGK's) claiming, that our EGK's were not native to the ACT.
In 2005, Nora Preston, President and Founder of Wildlife Carers Group, (WCG) applied for and was issued with a licence by TAMS (Territory and Municipal Services), with a Rehabilitation Carers Licence, to rehabilitate sick, injured, orphaned native animals/wildlife.
Nora Preston contacted the Licensing Officer and the Local Chief Minister Jon Stanhope of the Labor Party, and pointed out to them that our Native EGK's were indeed native to the ACT, that the licence was incorrect and needed to be amended, and to include the full term rehabilitation of our Native EGK's.
Nora Preston - WCG, received A formal letter from both Jon Stanhope and the Licensing Officer at that time, from tams, apologising for the error, and amended the licence, however, only amended rehabilitation for 48 hours, instead of the required full term rehabilitation, and then want the healthy animals destroyed.
Failing to amend the Rehabilitation Licence to full term rehabilitation of our sick, injured, orphaned EGK's, allows acts of cruelty, inhumanely and unnecessarily killing/destroying EGK's that are healthy, and have every prospect of a successful rehabilitation.
This ACT licence is being governed under an old 1996 report.
Furthermore, Research has been cruel by TAMS, with Bromocriptine fertility research, which is an oral administration, suppressing the milk from the joey, slowly starving it to death, page 64/65 in Report 3, or cruelly ripping the joey from it's mothers pouch, causing bleeding of the mouth, with further hemorrhaging, injuries, and death. The 1996 ACT Kangaroo Advisory Council 3 Reports are on www.tams.act.gov.au/live/environment/local_wildlife/kangaroo_information/actkangarooadvisorycommitteereports
These are all acts of cruelty, therefore in breach of the animal welfare act, and will have to stop.
This report will show how out of date the current advisory council is, working off a report, reported in August 1996, however, Report 1, page 5/6, that was stating a report in late 1994, also recommended that the culling must stop, because they 'were over culling our native kangaroos', and yet, the wildlife rehabilitation licence was never updated to include full term rehabilitation of sick, injured, orphaned native Eastern Grey Kangaroos to allow the recovery of the EGK's population, which has continued to rapidly decline.
Report 2, page 5, first paragraph, then contradicts Report 1, claiming that 'this licence specifically excludes Eastern Grey Kangaroos because of their abundance in the ACT', which is describing the Rehabilitation licence.
The ACT is the only state in Australia that cruelly prevents the full term rehabilitation of our sick, injured, orphaned Native EGK's.
The advisory council is made up of the kangaroo commercial industry, farmers, rspca, (who categorise our native EGK's as feral on their website, and insist on cruel killing, then claim that the inhumane killings are humane) etc, all who have a serious conflict of interest with kangaroos, and want them to be driven to extinction, with the mentality that 'wildlife can't live amongst humans' which was quoted to Nora Preston by the head ranger of TAMS, and the local government who was in charge of the environment file at the time, with absolutely no regard to the destruction they were causing to our environment, conservation of, or the animal rights and welfare.
It is time to put the environment, conservation of, and wildlife first, to be educated, come back into this century, civilisation, and start acting like civilised, educated people.
For animal welfare reasons, the Rehabilitation licence must be amended and to reinstate the full term rehabilitation of sick, injured, orphaned Native EGK's.
To prevent road kills, the shooroo needs to be modified, so that it can be activated in the vehicles, when travelling at any speed.
Saving and Caring for our Environment, Conservation, and all of our Native Wildlife.
The final stage in July 2008 will be the introduction of a two stage probationary licence comprising a one year P1 probationary licence, and a three year P2 probationary licence.
Passenger laws will be in effect not allowing P platers to carry a certain amount of passengers between a certain time, making transport more difficult.
The laws will also extend P plates from 3 years to 4 years, meaning that a younger driver will have to be 22 in Victoria in order to claim their full licence.
From 1 July 2007, new restrictions on driving high powered vehicles will be introduced for probationary licence drivers who obtain their licence from 1 July 2007.
From this date a probationary licence holder will not be able to drive a vehicle if it has:
* An engine of eight or more cylinders;
* a turbocharged or supercharged engine (except diesel powered vehicles);
* an engine that has been modified to increase its performance; and/or
* certain high performance six cylinder cars. An official list of nominated vehicles will be published on this website from 1 July 2007. In the interim it is expected to include the following vehicles:
o the BMW M and M3,
o Nissan 350Z,
o Porsche (all models), and
o Mercedes Benz SLK350.
A person can be imprisoned for a period of time and be released early due to parole but a person who is disqualified from driving a vehicle dose not have this option regardless that it may be a much less serious offense.
If a person who has lost their license or driven whilst disqualified, and has not re-offended after a period of time, they should have the option to reduce their disqualification period and/or be able to obtain a restricted work license.
People make mistakes and people change and I believe that my submission is fair and just.

Cheshire is the only county in England that does not have its own dedicated news page on the BBC.
Surfers seeking news from Chester, Nantwich, Wilmslow, Vale Royal, Macclesfield, Crewe, Congleton etc, are forced to search for local news on the news pages for Merseyside, Manchester and Staffordshire.
Even then, coverage is very sparse, compared to news reporting from the major towns in the adjoining regions. Cheshire is a very large county and deserves its own coverage as much as the other English counties. Local news for local people!
Complaining individually to the BBC produces one of the following responses:
- we don't know why there is there no Cheshire coverage, we'll look into it.
- please look on the news pages for adjacent counties.
- it's not viable.
Why is it not viable? We are licence payers - we deserve equality of coverage. The BBC's attitude is disgraceful at best.
The BBC website also does not provide coverage for Cheshire regarding non-news, such as its "What's On" pages - typing in your postcode directs you to the nearest major town in an adjacent county.
Furthermore, there is no BBC Cheshire radio station and searching the BBC website for information on Cheshire weather displays weather maps for Liverpool to Glasgow, North Wales or Staffordshire, none of which show any Cheshire towns.

Steve 'the Crocodile Hunter' Irwin has applied for Exotic Wildlife Importation Licence. So far he has imported Asiatic Elephants and Pythons. We do not need Wildlife that are not native to Australia to caged, corraled, entombed in some concrete, enslave, for the benefit of exploitation and money. Steve 'the Crocodile Hunter' Irwin of Beerwah Zoo of Miseries in Qld has NO interest of the animals. His interests are exploitation and MONEY. There is nothing educational about exploiting and abusing animals
A report calling for the abolition of the TV licence was sent to the Commission, the BBC and HM government in February 2002 but nothing has yet been done.
Should we have to wait until we are 16 to get a drivers licence? I don't think so.
