you are all wrong!!!
driver education isnt the answer to road safety. skills and attitude mean nothing. the ability to read prevailing conditions, knowing your cars limits and being able to adjust your driving mean squat. speed limits and a visible police presence also do nothing.
and the proof???? a letter in todays west australian.
"It is time for the police and transport ministers to stop passing thr buck and blaming the driver in speed related accidents. The Federal Government has the power to say what can be manufactured and sold in Australia. High powered vehicles should be the first priority.
To reduce the road toll, you must first get rid of the cause - high powered vehicles"
a big thank-you goes out to Frank Cherry of South Lake for his well thought out, well reasoned and obviously well researched yet very brief study into the road toll.
i could go into this and cut it to ribbons a so many different levels, but i would only be saying what you all think.
i will leave it at this;
someone wrote and believes this, a paper published this, some other d!ckhead will also believe this...probably a pollie. after all, they believe car ads are also responsible for the road toll.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
