Aussie drivers will soon start seeing an “R plate” on some cars which are designed to help anxious drivers return to the road with ease after a traumatic experience or an extended absence.  The R plates — or Return plates — are a third-party initiative and are not an official item sanctioned by state road authorities like Learners or Provisional driver plates.  It’s similar to a baby-on-board sign, according to reports, and aims to encourage other road users to have more empathy for nervous drivers.
