The Victorian road toll to Feb. 19 stood at 49, the same as in 2005. If we backpedal to Feb. 19, 2000, we'd discover that 45 Victorians had died on the state's roads that year - four fewer. So what does that say about the "success" of the Victorian Government's punitive road safety programs?
My answer - it's great revenue generator and looks like doing something to reduce road death.
