Its been Pissing me off for a while.

Some will know, that my eldest bloke is currently on L Plates, as part of this gif they require 120 hours of various driving conditions logged, I’m not going to go into this issue just yet, although it really does fkn piss me off, the prevelance of outright fucking stuoidity displayed in Vic roads and the system as it currently stands.

WHAT I cannot fathom, is that if the gummit is really serious about reducing the road toll and thats NOT JUST DEATHS, but also the number of injuries in general, what not adopt the following measures across the fkn board.

1 BAN SMALL SKINNY ARSE FKN TYRES ON CARS!. lets face it, unless you happen to shell out for a sports model of a car, the type of tyre you get can be really fkn ordinary. this lets do it cheap thing is narrow mined. for starters, if all cars are required to ahve..lets say as a minimum, a 205 series tyre and not these poxy headed 175 series which seem to be the norm on small, lets not have much wrapped around you, becoming a lot more fkn prevalent on the road buz boxes, we would see a lowering of the tyre cost. PLUS, we would also see a reduction in the vehicles stopping distance as well. Plus we would see an improvement in the vehicles handling qualities too.

And this is just ONE small change across the board that can be fixed with a legislative change. YES we have the issue of legacy vehicles, but the fact is, any car which has 195 series tyres will be capable of supporting 205 series as well. Now as for the insurance companies then perhaps suggesting that the Vehicle has been modded form the manufactirers specification we fkn well legislate againt these pricks doing that as well. Its about time we actiually passed some laws which were fkn useful.

The next one, thats cruise control, as far as I am concermned it should be mandatory on all vehicle, that new bvehicles sold, then lets also toss in that all cars, utes etc MUST HAVE ESC, or Electronic stability control as a standard fitment, plus front air bags for both driver and passenger and side fkn airbags as well.

You see, if its law, the scale of requirement for supply goes up and the mass should drive down the overall unit production cost, plus on top of that, they want to keep selling cars.

This will impact on the resale market, of that I have no doubt, but its far better to have a small hit there when balanced against the loives and injuryies it will stop or reduce.

Not rocket science in my book, yet no fkn tool headed git in gummit seems to be able to work it out FFSAKES. H OUT!

  1. Rightio.

    In other news, I saw 3 F16’s fly over the other day. MUST have been the Singapore AF. Stunning little plane, always been my favourite. Stoked cause I’ve never seen one flying before.

  2. Or, alternatively, Victorian drivers could just get a fkn clue and stop thinking they are the most important road users and need to get to their destination quicker than everyone else. Disobeying red lights is a major problem here – I’ve almost been collected about 5 times as people tried to scoot through before the on-coming traffic moved. Shits.

  3. Tyres – yes & no. Small increases could be made, but big ones are going to increase fuel consumption and decrease driver road feel.

    Cruise control SHOULD BE BANNED! It reduces concentration and people pull out in front of you to overtake just so they won’t have to disengage their cruise.

    ESC you are spot on with.

    Driver needs to be improved dramatically. Less focus on moron parents doing the teaching and more trained high skill professionals.

    Highways speeds must be increased. 110km/h requires no concentration. It is hard to daydream at 140km/h. Skaify had a lot of good ideas.

    The problem is Governments only work with statistics and not knowledge. That’s because statistics are easier to argue in the media, even though we all known statistics can misleading.

    Finally, as ALD said. We need to return to the driving attitudes of 40 years ago. We were much more European back then and we are more American now.

    Naut

  4. Have drivers actually able to drive not merely operate a vehicle. Make sure they have a F*kn clue I’m sick of seeing L Plates behind tinted windows a sure sign that no thought is occurring in the front seats or is ever likely to.
