Sigh

Posted: January 18, 2010 in Melbourne, Misc Thoughts

Just what is happening on Melbourne’s roads. There doesn’t seem to be a day that goes by without hearing of some horrific accident, someone being caught driving drunk/drug affected or excessively speeding. Yesterday five teenagers were killed in Mill Park when their car hit trees while travelling at 140 kmph. Another young man was caught driving at 70 kms over the speed limit. While teenagers have always taken dumb risks when they get behind the wheel I think that it is getting to epidemic proportions. And it’s not just teenagers, but 20 and 30 somethings as well.

I don’t know whether I have only just started taking notice of this type of thing but surely things have gotten worse in the last 12 months or so.
