Speed cameras important
I’M not sure I agree with the LNP’s reasoning behind abolishing covert speed cameras.
New deputy leader Tim Mander says they are cash cows and, to change behaviours on our roads, we must educate drivers and make sure they are aware of the road rules.
Even the dumbest of drivers should have a grasp of the road rules – it’s what you learn when you get a licence.
I for one hate speed cameras, I get caught by them regularly, but the truth of the matter is they make me slow down.
I’m always wary of where they might be.
Yes, they are cash cows but they are also an important part of road safety. If governments were serious, they would lower the fine and increase the number of points lost when caught. Not having a licence is the biggest deterrent of all.
