Hi RiotACT Community,
ACT Policing’s 14efforts to discourage tailgating have so far proven ineffective. Every year Canberra has more than three thousand rear end crashes. That’s more crashes than are caused by alcohol, speeding or mobile phones.
Their October 2015 campaign was a spectacular failure, catching a mere six drivers for tailgating. They could have charged hundreds more, if they had bothered to look through their crash reports for the month.
Police will again focus on tailgating during July.
Should they continue with their previous ineffective methods, or should they start by charging the thousands of offenders who are identified each year in their crash reports?
