Common sense road rules survey
State Liberal Member for Eildon Cindy McLeish MP is encouraging local motorists to have their say about Victorian road rules via a survey launched by the Liberal Nationals Coalition.
“Recently, too many road rules have been designed by bureaucrats. Some of their ideas might be good on paper, but in the real world they can create more problems than they fix,” Ms McLeish said.
“The Liberal Nationals believe road rules should be based on common sense. That’s why we want to know what Victorians think about our state’s road rules.”
Motorists can have their say about rules that should be changed, or new rules that should be considered, through the new Common Sense Road Rules survey.
“We want to know what Victorians think about a range of issues, including speed limits through roadworks, differential speed limits for trucks, rural learner drivers,” Ms McLeish said.
Feedback obtained from the community will inform the Liberal Nationals Coalition’s policies which will be taken to the election to be held in November this year.
“Too often under Labor, motorists have been cut out of decision-making on speed limits and road rules. Changes have often been made haphazardly, without any public consultation, and have been either announced at short notice or not announced at all.”
“The Liberal Nationals will listen to the community and we’ll introduce road rules that make sense and that make our roads safer,” Ms McLeish concluded.
