The number of people on this forum who are getting pinged is just amazing.
Why are we putting up with the blatant falsehoods and blatant lies from the various state governments, police etc.
If you are to follow the logic of so-called experts like one Professor McLean of Adelaide University, If speed kills, then why aren't the autobahns of Germany clogged up hundreds of crashed crashes and hundreds of people dying daily?
"It is instructive to compare the extent to which the risk of involvement in a casualty crash varies with a driver's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and with travelling at a speed above the speed limit. We are able to do this because a case-control study of crash risk and BAC was conducted by the Road Accident Research Unit in Adelaide in 1979. Comparable case control studies on speed and alcohol have not been conducted in the same city anywhere else in the world. The results of these two studies indicate that if the blood alcohol concentration is multiplied by 100, and the resulting number is added to 60 km/h, the risk of involvement in a casualty crash associated with that free travelling speed is almost the same as the risk associated with the blood alcohol concentration. Hence, the risk is similar for 0.05 and 65; for 0.08 and 68; for .12 and 72, and so on.
Given that the relative risk of involvement in a casualty crash at 72 km/h is similar to that for a BAC of 0.12, it is more than a little incongruous that the penalty for the BAC offence is a $500-$900 fine and automatic licence disqualification for at least six months while the penalty for the speeding offence is only a $110 fine"
The problem with the above report is that is bloke has taken only the data that fits his argument that speed kills. In fact if you read all the statistics he uses, his conclusion is flawed!!!
It is people like Professor Mclean who are advising our state Governments. Why are we accepting the BS from people like this.
Just go to this link and you will see what I mean.
When are we going to stop putting up with the BS and fight back!
The state governments income from cigarettes is diminishing a great rate, so they are slugging the motorist with an illegal tax
There will only be relief of this madness if we fight back.
