I AM the holder of a P1 licence and as a frequent user of the Hume Freeway I find it rather dangerous to be travelling at 90km/h on the Hume Freeway, especially in peak hour traffic.
When I am driving on the freeway most other cars are being driven by P2 and full-licence drivers who will usually overtake me but in some instances when there is traffic merging and you’re in the left lane and there are already cars in the right lane, it can be extremely dangerous, especially if there are trucks on the road, and it can increase the risk of a collision.
There were times like these when I had no choice but to put the pedal down and do 110km/h just to protect my own life.
Most people would say that you should just stay in the right lane and you’ll be fine but even then when you’re driving in peak hour traffic it is still a hazard because there are other cars in the right lane and all you are doing is just being a nuisance to them by going slower.
In all sense driving at 90km/h is extremely dangerous and I don’t understand why we are restricted to that speed.
If you have had a good amount of experience and the conditions are good then there should be no reason not to do 110km/h on the Hume Freeway.
In Victoria all drivers can do the speed limit regardless if you are an L-plater or P-plater.
Why can’t NSW adopt the same thing?
Doing 110km/h is completely safe.
