http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,24138609-5000117,00.html A few problems from my perspective: 1. Stats used - deaths per 100,000 people. No consideration given to actual distance travelled, economic factors, public transport services, quality of roads, demographics, etc. 2. Annual RWCs. In NSW they've had them for decades while we haven't. Didn't seem to make any difference to the crash rate here. And if you're to believe the stats a vehicle's condition had little bearing, if anything, on why a crash occured. 3. Law enforcement. OK if the police will target bad driving. But if they're hiding in the shrubbery with radar guns then they're not going to be as effective. All they're doing is to catch someone speeding at that particular point in their travels. They won't be aware of god knows how many incidents of bad driving that may have occured before or after that spot. 4. Double demerits. They have had this in NSW for a long time too and yet they still have had higher holiday road tolls than Victoria. Sure, they may slow people down, or purport to, but the crashes are still happening.
