Crazy insurance cost

Spotted this on the BBC this morning. I used to think insurance was heavy when I was 17 but at least it generally cost less than the car.

I don't know how young people can afford to drive today. Even If their parents help them out the cost implication is still huge. Social mobility seems to be @@ked for the young.

Can't they pay for some kind of limiter and monitor to be fitted to a vehicle to reduce costs ?
