New body proposed to monitor new drivers

What is the use of those 25-30 hours of classes before a person is given P license? Oh right, they allow us to do our own thing and even sleep in class. Now they want to spend more money? Why not evaluate the effectiveness of our current system and improve on that?

Mr Bung (BN-Kinabatangan), why not monitor the classes and the teachers 1st?

The extracted news this morning:-

KUALA LUMPUR: A lawmaker proposed that the government set up a special body to monitor newly licensed drivers over a certain period to ascertain whether they are competent and safe drivers.

Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan) said having such a body might help reduce fatalities from road accidents which were currently on the rise.

"Let them (new licensed drivers) know the responsibility of driving a vehicle, as our own family members, relatives or ourselves can be the victims of road accidents.

"But there is no monitoring, so when people get their licence, some think they are champions and drive any way they like.
