And the number tested was 32,000 down on the figure in 2006, police data shows. Despite this, the country road toll fell by 36 deaths to 137 last year, while Melbourne's toll rose by eight to 166. So, does RBT actually do anything other than to annoy those who don't drink drive? There's an article about how Tasmanian police blocked roads leading from a holiday spot down there recently. They apparently stopped and tested EVERY driver. Lots of complaints about people stick in queues for many hours. Police, naturally, offered no apologies. Dunno what it achieved, except to probably alienate the general public from the police, especially when they're increasingly being seen as either lazy, corrupt, or over officious where resources could be better used elsewhere.
