Safety is price­less

The Queensland Times - - Your Say -

I HAVE a very sim­ple an­swer to the am­ber traf­fic light de­bate.

In­stall a 10-sec­ond nu­meral count down sim­i­lar to the don’t walk signs at pedes­trian cross­ings.

If you ap­proach the lights whilst driv­ing and for in­stance it reads five sec­onds to am­ber you have no come­back if you chance your arm.

As it stands now no mo­torist knows when it is go­ing to change, but if you have a clear in­di­ca­tion how long it will be, then let’s go one step fur­ther and dou­ble the fine and de­merit points.

As it stands now every­one is anx­ious driv­ing around lights but this will make it so much eas­ier.

Some will say “What about the cost?” but there is no come back for safety and use the fines to pay for this priv­i­lege. David Blair Dee­bing Heights
