Hand-Wringing Speed-Kills Twaddle

Discussion in 'Australian Motorcycles' started by Intact Kneeslider, Jan 13, 2004.

  1. Argues that there's no plausible reason for NSW and Victoria to have
    disparate annual road tolls, despite NSW being x times larger than Victoria
    and having y times worse roads.

    Goes on to compare the figure of $1.5 million per extra road death which
    American actuaries have arrived at as being the amount of money saved due to
    reduced travel times resulting from increased speed limits to the average
    $1.8 million paid out for each person killed on Sept. 11.

    Lunkhead.

    What a twonk. I don't even know where to start with all the errors in that
    argument. But what would you expect when a Economics person gets in on the
    road safety game...
