The government was told that lowering the drink-drive limit would save 33 lives and $238 million a year. They ignored it. Why? I reckon the only money they were worried about was donations from the booze barons.
Reminds me of the water quality regulations. Government extended the timeline because of the ‘cost’. Ignored the benefits of better water.
Same with air quality regulations. Canned because of cost. Benefits that outweighed the cost ignored.
Not to mention that billions is being wasted on roads while kindergarten funding is being cut.
These idiots don’t bother with basic cost vs benefit analyses. It’s all about pay-offs for their mates. And donation kickbacks.
