SAFETY DIS­AS­TER

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

NOW let me see if I have this right: the State Gov­ern­ment in­tends to erect bill­boards on the Mitchell and Kwinana free­ways to pro­mote (wait for it) “road safety”.

Imag­ine, if you would, a mo­torist cruis­ing along, ob­serv­ing other mo­torists around him who then out of the cor­ner of his eye spots the flash­ing lights on the bill­board.

Au­to­mat­i­cally he looks at the bill­board and even though only for a split sec­ond, he is then no longer in con­trol of his des­tiny.

A squeal of tyres, a loud bang and his lights go out – good­night.

Who came up with this idea? JIM HOL­BORN, Yange­bup.
