  • Exactly, do they really want people to stop speeding, texting, probably not.

    The same could be said for getting serious about crashes, they could change the law and make everyone in a vehicle wear a helmet and MX style body suit. This would reduce acquired brain injuries, reduce injury to the elderly in small bingles.... but the public would never go for it. Wouldn't a little baby in a stack hat be hilarious and also going into a servo with your helmet on would would surely be permitted, but don't forget your SAI global sticker or there'll be LOTS of fines in that.

    Here's an idea - force phone owners to use phone covers embossed with images like smashed up cars, scolded legs, cracked screens and other text-while-driving images...

      Neither would the car manufacturers - enforcing the use of that kind of PPE would suggest to the public their vehicles aren't safe...

        Well if we went by correct safety protocol no vehicle would be allowed to travel faster than human reaction time, which last I heard was in the vicinity of 15kmh.

          You didn't expect laws to keep up with technology, did you?

            Nope...

            They are so far behind that the laws will actually hold up the take up of some technology...

              Seems like it, I'm surprised at that. I use my handsfree to send a text every now and then.
              It all works through the Bluetooth stereo so it's not like I'm handling the phone at all.

                • While I'm here and on subject....

                  I see some pretty shit driving behaviour day by day, being a postie.
                  Last week, some mid life soccer mum is fumbling around in her lap at the lights. Of course, she takes off late, and then goes back to her lap. She's honestly spending around 5-10 seconds looking dowm between glances at the road. She then starts drifting into my lane.

                  I gave her a toot.
                  She looked up.
                  Back to her lap.
                  I then held my horn until she looked at me, at which point I gave her the universal 'fingers in my eyes' "I'm watching you" gesture.

                  Her response?
                  She holds up her purse as if to say "what's wrong with you, I'm not on my phone"...

                  Yep.
                  Apparently that makes it ok.

                  People. Gotta love 'em.

                      Almost as bad as the one I read today about the baby who died during a homebirth.

                      Warned by a couple of different doctors NOT to do a homebirth as they did with their other children, since the baby was sideways. But no, they built a teepee and had their hippie friends over so they could all watch the baby come out, not breathing, and then die 3 days later.

                      I am SO fucking sick of imbeciles ignoring doctors thinking that they know more from their googling.

                      These same people think Microwaves give you cancer.
