Display P-plate to appeal for more care, patience

Mr Li Ze Zong suggested that more senior drivers were getting involved in accidents and expressed concern for their safety ("Implement 'silver-plate' policy for older drivers"; Oct 17).

There are no statistics to suggest that senior drivers are increasingly the cause of road accidents.

Mr Li has correctly pointed out that younger drivers lack experience in dealing with unexpected road situations.

Senior drivers who are concerned about safety or would like other drivers to be more patient with them can simply display the current yellow and orange probation P-plate.

There is no need for a separate silver plate.
