Your editorial will have served to reinforce the idea held by so many people that motoring laws are only to be obeyed by others, if at all. The reality is that crimes like speeding are not trivial, they are the most evil and deadly things that most people ever do. We know that if average speeds were to fall by as little as 1kph, the death rate on our roads would be reduced by 5 per cent, injuries by even more. Five per cent of the annual death toll is about 225 lives. Surely you should be advocating the strongest possible measures to stamp out speeding and spare those lives.
