Today is a bright day for the people of Victoria as the Victorian government is preparing a new road safety strategy and would like to know what you think.
Two public forums will be held on:
If you are unable to attend the forum, you can always register and voice your opinion at www.arrivealive.vic.gov.au
As much as we would love to support this forum, there are some major issues already apparent with the agenda behind the whole event. If you visit the website, and attempt to complete the survey you are presented with some rather odd choices.
For example, for several of the issues (speeding and drink driving among them) increased education or increased training is not listed as an option. Instead the only choices you have are the ones listed above.
Choices which are all based on creating more fear to force drivers to slow down as oppose to education drivers. Not exactly a forum with an open mind?
However, please do complete the survey and use the ‘Other’ option and put in some ideas for the Victorian government to find a real solution for speeding issues in the means of better driving training and education.
There are also a great deal of details regarding the new high powered vehicle restrictions for p plate drivers available.
