That bright yellow square emblazoned with a black 'L' may soon become a symbol of safety.
According to a local driving instructor, Griffith's young people are safer than ever behind the wheel.
As the owner and director of AAA Driving School, Sandro Coledan is on the road with dozens of learner drivers each week, teaching them the dos and don'ts of operating a car.
Mr Coledan said the extra "strictness" in place for learners is helping create more low-risk drivers.
"Younger drivers are getting better," he said. "They're becoming more aware of the elements of low-risk driving."
"We're always getting given new things to teach young drivers ... observation and scanning checks are a huge thing these days, things like checking our blind spots regularly."
"It's gotten so much more strict than what it was."
Mr Coledan said there is a "big focus" on training young people to be aware of how dangerous distractions can be, such as mobile phones and friends being boisterous in the car.
He said they had benefitted from this focus and were often adept at staying focused on the road.

Griffith can offer up a mixed bag when it comes to young people learning to drive, with a combination of farm kids who already know the basics and others who have never been in that front right seat before.
But Mr Coledan said the vast majority of young residents come into lessons with a willingness to learn safe driving.
According to the driving instructor, it can be a baptism of fire learning to drive on Griffith's roads, which he says are home to "some of the worst drivers in Australia".
"A lot of the older Griffith drivers just want to do what they want and don't have much regard for other road users," he said.
"For some reason Griffith is leading the way in that horrible field unfortunately."
Mr Coledan said he and his learners regularly receive abuse during lessons from impatient older drivers.
"People wave their arms, they beep, they overtaking us in dangerous situations ... and I just think 'didn't you ever have to learn?'."
He said it was important to turn those moments into a learning experience for young drivers, so that they could develop patience and courteousy for others while on the road.
