I’ve been thinking….

Weird huh, time to think….

After watching a few youtube clips on speed cameras it still seems obvious that there are many, many ‘unsafe’ sites without cameras.

Didn’t the GovInc say cameras are ONLY where there is a recognised need?

VICTORIA’S worst intersection has been named following a major survey of more than 6000 frustrated motorists.

Of all those nominated the RACV declared the intersection of Springvale and Whitehorse roads in Nunawading the worst. And motorists only expect the congestion to double by 2020.

Six of the worst congestion sites in the state have made the top ten for two surveys running, and five of the worst spots are at level crossings.

The RACV Redspot survey found 89 per cent of respondents believed congestion was worse than five years ago, and 85 per cent thought it would get worse.
