I am a supporter of booking people speeding through road works, people’s lives are at stake.
But as a regular long distance driver I have a theory that a driver’s willingness to slow down is inversely proportional to the number of bogus road works he/she has endured.
You know the ones, ‘slow down’ signs, 40 kph signs, then nothing, or a bit of gravel.. no people, no works.
A couple of these and it seems it is pedal to the metal through the next one, pity if some poor guy is actually working there.

The reason is lawyers, malfeasance, holding some poor engineer responsible for every pothole in his/her Shire.
But now the Canberra City Council is at it. ‘Roadworks’ northbound on the Barton Highway. What cr@p!! There are no roadworks and the road surface is better than many 100 kph zones in NSW.
To me this is negligence worse than what lawyers chase, it causes people to ignore real road works and risk workers’ lives. Typical rubbish ACT road planning!
