Special licences for SUV drivers

My sincere condolences to the parents of the schoolgirl who died following an accident in the school parking (4-year-old dies outside Dubai school: Driver admits mistake; KT, Nov 7). It's an unfortunate incident, but is it one-off? I doubt it. Just visit a busy school parking and you'll be appalled at seeing how people drive and manoeuvre their SUVs. The cars, when in wrong hands, turn into weapons.

Driving small and medium cars, and vehicles weighing more than two tonnes is not the same thing. Perhaps there should be a special licence category for SUVs drivers. Just like the ones for bus drivers. Half of the drivers are unqualified to control such large vehicles.
