Low speeding is big problem

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 31 July, 2012 - 8:59 AM
Road safety experts believe demerit point penalties should apply to all speeding offences.

Road safety experts are pushing for demerit point penalties for people who are caught exceeding the posted speed limit by less than 10km/h. Paul Murray spoke to Professor of Road Safety at Monash University Max Cameron.

  • Speed kills. How many times do they spin this live? Speed does not kill you morons. Bad driving kills!!! The highway to bunbury south if safety bay road was 100km/h which was far too slow but if you got caught you were a bad driver and every 5klms over doubles your chance of an accident. What a crock of shit! They then listen (for a change) to the public and increase it to 110. Are we now all safe at 110??? People should drive to the conditions ie weather , time of day with reference to traffic volume. In heavy rain 100 is too fast. On a dry clear day with low traffic volumes 110 is too slow. Wake up Perth oh and stop the stupid undertakIng rule. Overtake then move over!!!

  • Pushbikes go faster on local roads! Hope a lycra warrior doesn't decide to do a runner, the cops will never catch them without breaking the law hahaha. They'll never find them either, cause they have no rego plates! What a hoot that suggestion is. Do these people get paid?

  • If implementing this speeding regulation for us to watch our speedo constantly, I do hope the government will stop wasting our taxpayers money on TV ad's etc, encouraging us not to be distracted as distraction kills, and whilst we are distracted with this weird idea, I wonder what else they are up to that needs hiding

  • This is BS. It is about revenue raising and this means also you will spend ALL your time watching your speedo rather than driving.

    It also means traffic will move MUCH slower, rather than hovering with the needle around the limit you will be going not at 50kph but at 40 kph because most car speedos are NOT very precise - they may be Accurate but they're NOT precise - my speedo only reads 10kph increments and they are low spaced.

    Additionally there are variations for hills, reaction times etc that all mean you will be 5-10kph over before you react and slow down.

    I HATE government in this country it is AWFUL really facistic!
