Canada to consider mandatory driver training after series of high-profile road accidents
Authorities in Canada are considering compulsory driver licensing after a rash of embarrassing road accidents.
Canada is one of the few advanced nations that does not require any kind of testing before new drivers are allowed on the road. "That's a headache," said police spokesperson Wanda Dunkelwasser. "Basically you've got folks getting off the airplane from Nairobi or Calcutta who never drove anything more powerful than an ox-cart. Next thing you know they're behind the wheel of a 300 horsepower police car or even a bus or a street car. Shit's gonna happen!"
