Let me state first that I have the utmost sympathy and compassion for people who have lost a loved one in a road accident. However that doesn't mean that I can't question the validity of yet another blame speed but ignore everything else TAC campaign. Please see the link below for the objective of the Everybody Hurts campaign. http://www.everybodyhurts.com.au/more-information.html If only life was so simple that everything can be pigeonholed and labelled... As with nearly every road accident it can probably be traced back to a poor decision (speeding) and then compounded by a lack of driver skill in getting themselves out of a situation they found themselves in. Why aren't the friends and family focusing on an inept government who will not spend any money on advanced driver training, nor even acknowledge it's clear benefits in teaching people how to actually drive. Where do all those hundreds of millions of dollars of "safety camera" revenue go?, why isn't it being used to teach new drivers how to drive properly. If their child had participated in an advanced drivers course he would have experienced what can happen when it all goes wrong, he then may not have made that error of judgement in the first place, and even if he did jmaybe he would have had the skills to recover the car(certainly more skills than you get doing 120hours with mum & dad anyway) The focus on speed as the sole cause of road deaths is ridiculous, any campaign should have look at all driver behaviours, follow too closely, left hand lane hogs, innatention, drugs, alcohol etc... you know those things that are really responsible for people dying on our roads. When was the last time you saw either ANY postiive reinforcement of the road safety message or anything that focused on any other driver behaviour besides speeding, drink driving and drugs. It's about time that government was pulled up on this, I pray one day for the media to grow some balls and start to ask the hard questions. It surprises and scares me that the family and friends concerned would put their names to such a narrow minded view of road safety, I guess it just goes to show that the vicroads and vic pol brain washing works on sheeple.
