    I usually find this sort of sensational reporting to be abhorrent; P platers are an easy target for the media.

    However, a 3 month suspension of licence seems disproportionate for the multiple offences.

      “Disproportionate” how? Even though the word can technically be used to describe an overreaction or an underreaction, I’ve almost always seen it used in cases of overreaction. I think you’re saying that a three-month suspension seems like an underreaction, though.

        I meant it as an underreaction.

        I don’t agree with aggressive punishments beyond reasonable but 3 months seems ludicrously low and not enough in isolation or otherwise for the offences at hand.
