No fatalities wishful thinking

NATROAD says a newly framed Heavy Vehicle National Law should be about the management of risk to help set the heavy vehicle industry on a path to zero road fatalities.

But Big Rigs follower James Ralph reckons a "zero fatality industry is an unrealistic thing to even consider”.

"As long as people are driving automobiles, there will be accidents, no ifs and or buts,” he

wrote.

Christian Hargreaves said "sarcasm was getting in the way of reality”.

"Government and the almighty should take a good hard look at themselves and stop wasting our money on something that will never occur,” he said.

Teddy Brooks hoped NatRoad would also be looking at cars, motorbikes, bicycles and small trucks too.
