The Baillieu government has failed to produce a road safety strategy after nearly two years.
The best the government has come up with to date is a survey which is nothing more than a stunt.
Victorians will be dismayed that the man heading the Baillieu government’s road safety strategy development is none other than the failed Police Minister Peter Ryan, the man responsible for Victoria’s first rise in crime rates in more than a decade.
The Baillieu government has sacked hundreds of VicRoads and Department of Justice staff, the very people who would have worked on a road safety strategy.
Producing stickers, a website and a survey is not a road safety strategy.
It is time the no-action Baillieu government produced a detailed strategy that will save Victorian lives after two years of doing nothing.
Mr Baillieu and Mr Ryan as a first step should return all the maintenance funding it ripped out of the VicRoads budget and fix the thousands of dangerous potholed roads across Victoria.
