potshot of the month

Each month we take a potshot at something..


Yes, idiots who think its ok to use a mobile phone while driving. If you make calls, receive calls, text or do anything else with your mobile phone while driving you are a bloody idiot and breaking the law, not forgetting:

--> Risking your own life
--> Risking the lives of your passengers
--> Risking everyone around you

Its dumb, stupid, selfish and ridiculous behaviour that is breaking the law. Penalties include the loss of 4 demerit points and a $433 fine.

Gauging by the number of drivers flouting the law, the message is not getting through. As John Faine on 774 Radio put it, we need a visual message from one driver to another that it is unacceptable. Well, here it is..

Mobile Salute

Let Melbourne be the first city in the world to stamp out illegal handset use in cars.

Drivers, if you see another driver with a handset, give them the salute.

Ask your friends and family if they do it, and if they do give them the salute... embarrass them.

Web Link: Mobile Handset Salute

Come on Melbourne!

Good for What Ails Ya!
