Wanneroo Times - - Opinion - DANIEL MCALOON, Gir­rawheen

AS I have no­ticed a lack of po­lice on the roads for years, WA driver be­hav­iour has be­come ex­ces­sively risky.

Im­pa­tience stands out as one ma­jor fac­tor why we are see­ing in­creases in ac­ci­dents.

On In­dian Ocean Drive and Great East­ern High­way to Kal­go­or­lie, the risk-tak­ing is end­less.

Un­til we get more po­lice and start im­pound­ing cars for un­safe over­tak­ing, I sug­gest be­tween Yanchep and Lancelin that the road speed be re­duced to 70km/h to lower the risk posed by id­iots who over­take any­one on dou­ble white lines re­gard­less of the safety of mo­torists.
