VIC Geelong region speed limit changes

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by simon varley, Mar 7, 2014.

  1. the outcome of the Vic speed limit review seems to be ongoing. This week 4 speed limits on my commute have been reduced. None of these limits were previously either confusing or dangerous. Thanks VicRoads for looking after me so well as I am clearly unable to drive slow enough on my own to avoid killing myself.
