Cameras’ negative impacts
WARNING signs telling Aussie motorists there are speed cameras ahead are having a profoundly negative impact on our road safety, according to a new report.
But truckies don’t believe it will be enough to help save lives.
Brian Crebert said it wouldn’t change “human nature, which continues to be the biggest killer on our roads”.
Grant Early said if it was truly about road safety, then the governments must ensure that people could actually drive a vehicle and not just have the ability to pass a test.
“Stop the ‘corn flakes’ licensing now,” he said.
Burce Skelton said it was “all about revenue, nothing about road safety but two marked cars or bikes and everyone slows down and drives safely”.
“If you know where cameras are, you speed to that point then slow down,” he said.
“Governments just want more fines as it’s more in their coffers now that they have sold all their moneymaking departments.”
Len Welbourn agreed with his fellow truckies.
“A greater police presence on the road would be a better idea,” he said.
