I don’t trust Huawei as far as I can spit – but I agree with them 100% on this… America – like many Western countries (including Australia!) – has a long, LONG history of violating the basic human right for freedom-of-speech.
Nice to see that the Gold Coast City Council are getting into the Christmas Spirit…
Hopefully they bring this Queensland soon – just this morning I have already watched as at least half-a-dozen people brazenly used their cell phones, whilst operating a vehicle!
As for the NSW Government’s decision to remove signage for all their cameras – good.
If one is not speeding or using a cell phone, then they don’t have a problem… Do the right thing and you’ll be fine (pun not intended).
You know what? If I had $1 for every driver I see on the Gold Coast using a cell phone every day, I’d own most of the Gold Coast!
As I keep saying, they need to get tougher on those using cell phones whilst driving.
Imagine if drivers were being fined $1,000 for a first offence, had their vehicle crushed for the second offence and had a mandatory jail term for subsequent offences… Drivers would be terrified of even looking at their cell phones!
If this driver is proven to have been using his cell phone whilst driving, they should send him to prison for a minimum of ten years… But we live in Australia and our legal system has no teeth, so he’ll likely get a slap on the wrist, which is an insult to both the victims and the legal system.
