Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by robsalvv, Oct 28, 2011.

  1. http://www.roadsafetyconference2011.com.au/

    The conference is on 6 - 9 November. It's gonna be wall to wall safety folk wanting to make the roads safer using any and all means.

    The program of items is on this page: http://www.roadsafetyconference2011.com.au/program-workshops/index.shtml

    If you click on the program you will see in stark clarity all the items that are being discussed. There are 18 separate conference presentations related to "Speed" plus two workshops as well... including a little pearler called "making speeding socially unacceptable" - social engineering at it's best.

    Motorcycles get a half afternoon of focus in one of the five streams going on at the time - but in total there are six conference items covering motorcycling.

    Speed, technology, Intelligent transport systems (i.e., technology), safer roads, enforcement techniques and enforcement technologies seem to be the order of the day.
  2. This doesn't look like a government initiative. It looks more like the Road Safety Industry attempting to take over the job from government, and getting rich doing it.
  3. The sponsor is Western Australia’s version of the TAC in Victoria. It seems like they are using safety as an excuse to reduce costs and increase revenue.

    It’s all about the mighty dollar and it doesn't get more socially unnacceptable than this.

    The sponsor is

    The Insurance Commission of Western Australia is the sole compulsory third party insurer for motor vehicle personal injuries in Western Australia, and has membership on the Road Safety Council of WA. It has been the prime sponsor of the bi-annual state road safety forum and awards for more than ten years.
    The Insurance Commission of Western Australia is also proud to continue its relationship with the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference. This is the second time it has been the major sponsor of the important conference.
