100% Speeding (when safe)

Absolutely STUPID drivers.
On the news tonight there were 2 crashes that were just, well avoidable if anything was.
One, a Toyota Tarago crashed. What happened? A 17 year old was driving, he had 11 mates with him!!, then he rolled it, and put the lot of them in hospital!!. Thats 12 people in a 7 seat van.
Only the driver had a seat belt on.
The next one was where there was road works. Cars were stopped waiting for the council worker to turn around the sign to move off slowly, when a Semi trailer came at full speed into the back of them. It ran over 2 cars, and knocked 2 other cars off the road. 4 people killed.
Its this sort of thing that kills people.
People not paying attention
People falling asleep
Its people with no seat belts too. (something like 20% of the road deaths include where no seat belt is worn, even though they represent maybe 1% or less of the drivers)
Its people not giving way
Its people driving drunk
its people who cant drive
These people just shoulnt have licences.
These are the people that die and cause deaths not
people driving carefully at an appropriate speed.(even if over the speed limit)
C'mon Police and Beaurocrats, look at the real picture. Put more resources into people not stopping at stop signs, running red lights, etc. Its where the real deaths happen. Not Speed. Speed is just for revenue.
All these types of offenses happen way less often, so there wouldn't be much revenue, but.....they cause the deaths!!
Is that why they arent looked at seriously?
anyway, thats what I reckon
lets get sideways!!!
