REGULARLY we see our wonderful ladies and gentlemen in blue begging us in the media to drive safely. It must be most disappointing the current results.
In my career as a company rep, I have driven close to four million kilometres and came to the conclusion that most Queenslanders think they have a God-given right to speed.
Just hear the the outrage when the government introduce more speed cameras. Fund raisers is the cry. There is an answer: we need some new rules. (1) Remove all speeding fines. That should please a lot of people. (2) Remove all signs advising speed cameras ahead.
(3) Impound speeding cars for 48 hours for every 5klm over the speed limit.
(4) impound phone used by drivers for a week
(5) All costs to be borne by the driver.
Now that will save lives, but will never happen because getting reelected is more important than saving Aussie lives.
