Jon Stanhope, perhaps smarting from his foolish Vision Zero immediately before a series of freak accidents blew out the road toll, is taking his angry voice to all of you.
Sure it starts as an “appeal”, and moves on with some initiatives which give the appearance of action such as punishing p-platers using cough syrup, point to point cameras, and some more roadworks.
But by the end it’s all your fault:
“‘I want to send a clear message to the community: the carnage must stop, and it starts and ends with our own actions. I urge all drivers to make a commitment to themselves, and their families, to drive safely, obey the road rules and help prevent any further deaths on our roads.”
If only these initiatives had been rolled out before Mully stole that car in Quangers, they totally would have stopped this kind of thing!
