Please join with me to fight for better international driver safety on and around the Great Ocean Road.
The current situation is utterly untenable. The Victorian Government must be held to account for failing to take the tough action required – improved driver licensing laws and better driver education which should include some form of driver testing.
According to a local bus driver who travels the Great Ocean Road daily, she witnesses an accident or near miss every day.
There have been fatalities and a number of very serious incidents involving international drivers.
It is simply unacceptable that foreign drivers who may have no driving experience are permitted to hire a car and drive along the Great Ocean Road, one of the most challenging tourist drives in the country.
That the Victorian Government has ruled out taking any further action is totally out of step with community expectations. Action is needed before someone else is killed or seriously injured.
The hire car industry must also be held to account. It cannot continue to hire “moving time- bombs” to people who do not know how to drive and who are a massive danger to themselves, other road users and pedestrians.
PLEASE SIGN MY PETITION SO THAT, TOGETHER, WE CAN FIGHT FOR SAFER ROADS.
