Bracks your a DISGRACE - part 2
Must be the week for the most unknowledgable and greedy premier of all time to roll out all of his "road safety" initiatives.
Reported today that the Vic government has ordered "many" new generation cameras.
These cameras are both a red light, and speed camera, combined into one unit. The advantage of this? It can issue 2 fines at once. One for the red light, one for speeding.
Now, lets see. Who exactly are these new cameras going to keep "safe" All of the people on our rural roads (which are the major % of our road toll at the moment)?. All of the people at risk from fatigue? All of the unfortunate users of our long list of black spots? All 18 year olds armed with a new licence after 3 hours of formal lessons? All of the drivers of unroadworthy cars? Nope wont do a thing for them. As not one cent is to be spent on these initiatives. And yet Bracks seems to have an endless supply of money when it comes to purchasing speed cameras for our safest roads.
And to add insult to injury, has anyone noticed how they have gone to great lenghts to DISGUISE speed cameras. Why? Well lets face it, they wouldnt want to scare off a potential road tax victim would they?
Bracks, your the sickest joke I've seen in a long time. And the fact you can never deny, is a speed camera (especilly the concelead type we have in Victoria) has never slowed down a person speeding their way to an accident. I guess the last thing you would want is for them to see a camera, or actually slow down. How the hell will you cover this years state spending blow out if people did that?
Chevs may go, but theres nothing like a HO!
