Evidence of Effectiveness of Reduced Speed Limits Exclusively for P Platers

Dear Roads and Maritime Services,
I was wondering if there was any statistical evidence that P platers and L platers have reduced crash rates on high speed roads - roads with speed limits higher than 90km/h for learner drivers and red provisional drivers or roads with limits high than 100km/h for green provisional drivers.

Evidence of lower crash rates/fatalities when drivers are travelling at reduced speeds in this case would be irrelevant as I am asking specifically for rates when cars are driving at different limits on the same road. What was the reason for implementing these restrictions?
The restrictions were changed for Learner drivers from 80km/h to 90km/h; has there been a revision of these laws since their inception for provisional drivers?

As a further question has any investigation been looked into for how does NSW compares to other states which do not have these same restrictions?

Yours faithfully,
David Madden
