Saves the new drivers lives too, not just everyone else on the road. Canada has lots of restrictions for new drivers too.
In Canada you're a Novice for 2 years, then you go for another driving test, if you pass, you don't have the restrictions any more.
Personally I think that kind of stuff should have been done a long time ago, would have saved many many lives.
Sounds like Vancouver to me. I laugh every time I see a green Noob label at the back of people's cars.

This is how its done in ontario
G1 - must have a fully licensed driver with you at all times
G2- can drive on own but not with a lot of teens at night and not on 100kph highways - 0% BAC
G - full - up to 0.05% BAC suspended license > 0.08%BAC criminal offence
You can drive on 400-series expressways with a G2.
I'd stick with my Alberta GDL system, lol. The only restriction with a Class 5 probationary (Basically a G2 or Class 7N in BC, except better) is no alcohol, can't teach learners, and "no more passenger than seat belts" -- and you can keep it for as long as you like with no insurance discrimination since it is considered a Class 5. I don't think stupid teenage kids driving like an idiot is a problem around here. Just get them educated and let them drive. Stupid people will do stupid things whether it is legal or not.
