'Zero-tolerance' policy to be evaluated

Police will evaluate the weekend's "zero-tolerance" trial policy on speed before deciding to extend it or apply it again.

All drivers caught travelling more than 4km/h over the posted permanent speed limit were to be ticketed over Queen's Birthday weekend, which saw only one death on the roads - the lowest road toll for a holiday weekend in over 50 years.
"One death on the road is one death too many but it's a hell of a lot better than 10 so that's a good thing."
Ms Rose said drivers took up the challenge and self-policed their own speed, which was the aim of the blitz.

"We don't want to catch people, we want people to choose to do the right thing. On this weekend we have had a lot of people making some really good choices."

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
