Help stop the carnage by obeying road rules

THERE are more people killed on our roads than by terrorists around the world.

We pass those small flower arrangements on highways signifying a road death every day and most of us pay little attention to them.

Not so for the relatives of the victims who shed tears for years ahead.

Does it stop us speeding?

Does it make us more careful drivers?

Possibly not, as we carry on our merry way ignoring the speed signs and making silly driving errors.

We must learn to be more considerate to fellow motorists, show more patience and a little courtesy to others.

Maybe, the government can provide some form of incentive for good drivers that will make us more considerate.

Like, if one has no accidents or traffic infringements in a year one's rego is reduced by 25%.
