TWENTY-THREE people were killed on the territory's roads last month, but controls on inexperienced drivers which could reduce the toll have been put on hold. A total of 1,718 people became traffic accident statistics in November, a rise of 4.9 per cent on the same month last year. Of these, 23 were killed, 333 were seriously injured and 1,362 slightly injured, the latest police figures show. The number of accidents was also up, rising by 5.4 per cent to 1,330. Inexperienced drivers are two or three times more likely to be involved in an accident, according to the Road Safety Council. But plans to introduce a 'Driver Probationary Scheme' for drivers who have just passed their test are on the back-burner because government road safety experts say they already have too much to do.
