    Think Speed differential!

    Whenever cars pass at high speed accidents happen at much higher rates because of the risks around speed speed and because of the vortex of confusion that can last up to 20 minutes it causes in surrounding drivers.

    Yet:
    the State Government,
    small business ute drivers,
    big truckers on Company deadlines
    elite professionals on coke
    overprivileged millennials
    police

    all rely on OVERTAKING lanes on our highways and even viscerally &illegally extending that to suburban roads to get a ‘rush’ or save a few bucks on a deadline..

    And the worst part is the state Government backs this stupidity 100% right after they cease bemoanaing “why are so many people dying on our roads”.

    When you see B-Doubles doing 130 all the way down a 110 overtaking lane highbeaming normal people out of the way blame Gladys Berejiklian .

    And remind her that speeding is an offence and overtaking lanes on our roads is JUST SPEEDING.eed differential!

    To lower the road deaths in NSW 3 things must happen:

    1. Remove the “Keep left unless overtaking signs”
    2. Place speed cameras every 5Km on the concrete barriers that divide the highways with high death rates.
    3. Install point to point cameras on the M1,M2, M3, M4, M5, M6 & M7.
    Even if accidents aren’t then occurring on these stretches its IMPORTANT to understand that neither is the 20 minutes of confusion in drivers surrounding violent speed incidents on these roads. Its the 20 minutes of confusion and uncertainty that causes downstream accidents. Often after the highway with the overtaking lane is exited.
