A south-west MP has questioned the state government's approach to combating the spiralling road toll due to an online quiz of motorbike riders.
Opposition spokeswoman for rural road Roma Britnell asked did Premier Daniel Andrews really think that an online test would save the lives of motorcyclists on Victorian roads?
"Already this year 28 motorcyclists and passengers have lost their lives - 11 more than the same time last year," she said.
"Labor's plan to address this tragic spike is an online quiz and a series of posters and billboards. Online quizzes won't save lives but more money to repair both metropolitan and regional roads will."
The South West Coast MP questioned how many people did the state government expect to complete the quiz.
"How do they expect a non-compulsory online quiz to save lives?
"These are more platitudes aimed at making it look as if the Government is doing something about the crisis on our roads.
"In reality we know Labor has taken billions out of the Traffic Accident Commission, is reducing its spend on rural and regional road projects and is using money for road maintenance to repair wire rope barriers.
"Labor's feeble attempt to address our road toll crisis goes nowhere near far enough to keep Victorians safe on our roads," she said.
