SPEED UP, COUGH UP

Wheels (Australia) - - Inbox - Si­mon Inglis, Ballarat, Vic

A cam­era in Vic­to­ria, 114km/h in a 110km/h zone, $196. Why did I pay that? In Italy I would have torn up the let­ter and binned it. But in Italy I wouldn’t have re­ceived it in the first place. Same in Eng­land.

We vote and we pay – that’s our col­lec­tive er­ror. Road safety is our prob­lem, not a col­lec­tion av­enue for ‘tax­a­tion.’ I need this Wheels cam­paign as much as all Aus­tralians do.
