MORE CHAOS AND CONFUSION FROM DOMINIC PERROTTET AND THE LIBERALS

More chaos and confusion from Dominic Perrottet and his Liberal Government today, announcing a policy today where drivers who speed, will have their fines waived. Yesterday a policy like this was dangerous, today it’s a good idea.

Just yesterday Matt Kean said:

“I understand that two-thirds of speeding drivers involved in a crash that kills or injures someone are travelling less than ten kilometres over the speed limit.”

Motorists and road safety advocates will be entitled to ask – where does the government actually stand on road safety initiatives?

In a record u-turn, it also comes less than 24 hours after Labor announced a policy to incentive safer driving on our roads by offering one demerit point back for drivers who can keep a clean sheet for 12 months.

Labor is offering a plan to make our roads safer and reward all drivers who drive safely.

The Liberal Government is offering more confusion over road policy and rewards for safe drivers who are breaking the law.

It is also an admission that their secret hidden mobile speed cameras policy over the last two years has comprehensively failed, resulting in massive profits for the government and speed camera warning signs being out of action when they are needed the most – over the holiday periods of high traffic.

The Opposition will examine the detail of the Government’s proposal, but is open to adopting it given that the current system is failing.

This is a government that is riddled with division and confusion. It comes off the back of Paul Toole splitting with Dominic Perrottet, when he refused to back in cashless gaming.

John Graham, Shadow Minister for Roads said:

“Yesterday the Government was opposed to incentives for safer driving, today they are in favour. This would have to be the world’s fastest u-turn.”

“More than 600,000 people have been fined for low level speeding, but the road toll has gone up. In the view of the Opposition it is time to try some new ideas. We welcome the government doing so.”

“It’s disappointing they dismissed our better, safer policy out of hand, just because they didn’t come up with it.

“We are calling on the Government to clarify – how many mobile speed cameras are currently operating in NSW?”

“This is a 12 year old government who has run out of ideas. It’s clear they can’t govern the state, if they are at odds with themselves.”

“It’s time for a fresh start for NSW, and some new ideas – Labor will deliver that.”
