“It’s really disappointing to have had this occur.”

“We have nine vehicles that support this program, and the program really does help young people to get an opportunity.”

“These are people from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds who need a license to help with their job prospects and to help them get around,” Mr. Eales said.

The replacement cost for the car is estimated at between $25,000 and $30,000 plus insurance costs.
