There are hopes that a new scheme to help young people get their drivers license wil reduce the number of them who end up in the criminal justice system. Earlier this week the government announced young people in state care, or who receive a benefit, will be eligible free driving lessons. Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter says young drivers who have never held a driver licence were involved in 165 fatal or serious injury crashes, and this scheme will make our roads safer. It will cost around $5 million. Annette Sykes is a Maori lawyer. She talks to Gyles Beckford.
