SPEED & RED LIGHT CAMERAS
Here is a message I just received form a friend, I think its well worth a signature
Dear friends, relatives and contacts,
I have started a petition to urge the Victorian Government to abolish Speed and Red Light cameras.
You might be thinking “Yeah, I agree with abolishing the speed cameras but I think Red Light cameras are good” ?
Click on the link below and see my reasoning behind wanting both of these so-called “Law Enforcement” methods abolished.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION. PLEASE FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR CONTACTS AND ASK THEM TO DO THE SAME.
LET’S MAKE THIS PETITION GO VIRAL !
What have we got to lose ? Just a pathetic method of collecting revenue.
If tomorrow some research group proved, beyond any doubt, that speed cameras and red light cameras have not reduced the road toll at all.
Imagine the next day, asking Premier Denis Napthine “Why don’t you abolish speed and red light cameras NOW?”
What would his answer be ?
It would be something like: “A, a, a, a, we can’t do that !”
“Why not Mr. Napthine, it is proven that it doesn’t work ?”
He would have nothing else to say except “Because we would have a massive sudden drop in our revenue”
Because that is the bottom line.
Governments have become so used to having this revenue that they can’t do without it.
They need that revenue so that they can continue wasting it.
How much of goes back into making roads and drivers safer ?
They will tell you anything to convince you that it saves lives.
They will interpret research results to suit themselves and fool the public at the same time.
They talk about reduced road tolls but they fail to factor in safety features in cars which have now become standard; Air bags, ABS, Traction Control, Stability Control etc. All these things would have had an impact on the road toll.
Have you noticed how many drivers run red lights at intersections where there are no cameras ?
Have you noticed how many drivers drive 15kmh or more over the limit when they know they’re not in a speed camera area?
Please sign my petition. Please forward the link on to your friends and ask them to forward it further.
Even if you don’t agree with me, maybe your friends do.
Never mind that it says “100 signatures required” on the website; that nowhere near enough; we need 10s of thousands.
Let’s go viral. We can do it !
