Surgeons assert that road crashes, death, and serious injury will increase on New South Wales roads if populist politics in New South Wales continues.
In the bid for votes in the upcoming New South Wales state election, there has already been a race to the bottom in road safety terms by both major parties in New South Wales.
The most recent example is the offer to increase the speed limit on the West Connex, by one of the parties, if elected.
The increased crash risk which this will cause, particularly within the confines of the tunnel, does not justify the paltry two-minute travel time-saving proffered.
There is an urgent need for NSW politicians to seek appropriate technical advice before making pre-election promises prioritizing votes over road safety.
