After returning from my travel I’ve noticed a few of the road safety message signs being talked about before I left, have come to fruition. A few of them are quite good… naturally the good ones have been borrowed from overseas think tanks, like “Drink Drive, Die in a Ditch” and “Missing a call won’t kill you” 🙂 The others are a bit swing and miss. The “Speeding Hurts” signs have to go, as do the drive N txt, you’ll B nxt signs… blergh.
So what are some creative signs Riotact can put forward to our reps at ACT GovCo, next time they spend big on some of these signs?
“50% of crashes in the ACT are rear enders, BACK OFF”
“Driving, there’s no CTRL+Z”
“Driving, there’s no restart button”
“It’s not a race” – borrowed from QLD
“Driving Drunk? – You’re a bloody idiot” – borrowed from VIC
“Road Rage is petty, childish and deadly”
“Traffic Tantrums are petty, childish and deadly”
“Form one lane, not a competitive sport”
at road works sites:
“Saving 30 seconds risks XX years in prison, SLOW DOWN” (XX represents max number of years that can be awarded to a driver for mowing down a road worker in a work zone, whilst traveling too fast)
