Jon Stanhope (who we hear now goes by the name of “The Chief” in Assembly-land) has put out a media release pleading with the lead foots to ease up. The camera’s aren’t reducing speeding rates then sir?
- Transport Minister Jon Stanhope has pleaded with Canberrans to slow down on the roads, after road safety cameras detected 10 vehicles travelling at more than 45km/h above the speed limit in November.
The highest speed recorded was 242km/h in a 100km/h zone on the Tuggeranong Parkway. Three vehicles were detected travelling at more than 200km/h, including one travelling at 206km/h in an 80km/h zone.
Twenty-one cars were detected travelling with no number plates or incorrect plates.
“As we arrive at the period of the year that is the worst for road trauma, it is absolutely crucial that each of us resolves to keep to the speed limit this festive season,” Mr Stanhope said.
