We have heard it all before. But, two-hundred and forty-nine people people died in fatal traffic accidents on Victoria’s roads last year — a 2.5 per cent increase from 2013′s figure. This is despite a record number of fixed and mobile speed cameras deployed on roads in Victoria and around Australia. For years, the government has been claiming that speed cameras save lives and that speed is the greatest common factor in fatal car accidents. But with road deaths on the rise, could it be that speed cameras actually don’t save lives and in fact are contributing to our road toll by breeding poor driving practises? http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/ne...208176247?sv=f1f5291e16fbfc5a22bb636691312247 DID you get booked for speeding over the January holidays? Did you feel bad about it? There is no need to. Speed limits are too low, set by the wrong people, and police labour under the ridiculous notion that by enforcing them they can reduce road accidents. http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/ne...-lie-speed-kills/story-fni0cwl5-1227209572925 SENATOR David Leyonhjelm is wrong when he suggests “police labour under the ridiculous notion that by enforcing them (speed limits) they can reduce road accidents” (The Daily Telegraph, Opinion, February 5). Data managed by the NSW Centre for Road Safety suggests that in 2013, 42 per cent of those killed on our roads — 140 people — were involved in speed-related crashes. Think of their families, their friends, work colleagues and the emergency and medical staff who are all directly affected. Mods please move if you feel it to be more relevant elsewhere.
