“The campaign – a first for MAC – is using the term ‘Screwed’ to sum up the impact on young drivers if they lose their licence,” Mr Kenyon said.
“More than 3,000 South Australian learner and provisional drivers have lost their licence in the past year due to unsafe driving behaviors…that’s way too many.
“The statistics tell us that 16-24 year olds are almost twice as likely to be detected for drink driving and seatbelt offences compared to older drivers,” Mr Kenyon said.
“If a provisional licence driver breaks the conditions of their licence or attracts four or more demerit points, they’ll lose their licence for at least six months and that can have a significant affect on their lifestyle.
“We want young people to enjoy the freedom and the mobility that comes with holding a licence, but this will be taken from them should they not respect their licence privileges.
