Submit a response! One of the key proposals to reduce fatalities at intersections is to put local reduced speed limits at intersections. It's right there on page 21. This is the beige cardigan brigade going mad. There's nary a mention of improving the competence of road users! Instead, whenever safer people (one of the key cornerstones) is discussed, it's all about behaviour change and greater compliance with the laws! This strategy is flawed! Motorcycles don't rate much of a mention, but many of the strategies can't include motorcycles. Think about that for a minute. This draft strategy is all about idiot proofing the road system and about decreasing fatalities and injuries as a result of minimising the consequences of a collision, not the likelihood. It is focussed on humans making mistakes, not on poorly competent road users making poor choices which lead to collisions. The key plank is better roads. The next key plank is increased speed enforcement and lower speed limits. Think about that! <insert height kills analogy here> Have a say. Talk about it to your friends. Talk about it to your families. This strategy will curtail how everyone users their road vehicle - even the most beige of the beige will have their driving ultimately impacted... local reduction at intersections for feck's sake!
