You are no doubt looking forward to the Easter Celebrations for 2019. Only one day to go and the long weekend starts.
I am hoping that someone ignores my saying that Easter Eggs are a waste of money, and a block of chocolate is better value in grams per dollar. I reckon it is much more enjoyable to crack open a chocolate egg, plus I am more likely to save some for later!
The other side to Easter (apart from any religious commitments) is visiting relatives. But we need to avoid what you see below.
The Easter Road Toll
The Easter Road Toll for 2019 is currently zero. That is only because the tally will start from midnight tonight.
In 2015 there was a total of 161 fatalities in WA.
In 2016 there were 195.
2017, down to 160.
2018, up by one to 161.
Let’s aim for a better result this year.
I know that hoping for zero is probably a false hope as there is always an idiot who drinks too much and then drives, or perhaps is in a hurry to pass a truck and ends up colliding with oncoming traffic etc etc.
If we keep our distance, do not speed, and stop for a rest if driving a long distance perhaps we can improve on the 161 deaths last year by a decent amount.
There are not only fatalities, there are life altering injuries each tear too.
My advice is, Stay safe and enjoy Easter.
