Imunity ? Those At The Top Are Vaccinated.



Yahoo reports that since installing GPS monitoring in their fleet there have been eight and a half thousand incidents of exceeding speed limits that could incur fines detected by  cars belonging to New Zealand Transport Authority. Some  speeding in excess of 140 kph, (Nearly $600 penalty for a peasant unlucky enough to be caught)
In total there have been over 200 000  incidents revealed of exceeding 100 kph posted  limits

These are the simian moronic bastards who have pissed gazillions of taxpayer dollars down  many toilets while ignoring the salient fact that much if not most of the almost unbelievable decline in deaths from road crashes has not come from their grandiose extravagant campaigns against minor levels of alcohol in a drivers blood and speeding, it is a direct result of the exponential advances in structural strength of vehicles with stronger pillars, side bars, crumple zones, restraints, air bags and cocoon protection from ongoing crash research.  When coupled with a much faster response by paramedics trained to deliver almost all of the well proven  early treatment interventions that were the basis of the now redundant as a focus, "Golden Hour", the powers that be understand entirely what has happened they just avoid ever admitting it.
Still plenty of crashes just fewer dead.

Now lets, with some assumptions, do some maths.
With the fine at around $100 for an excess of around 17kph outside of the oh so idiotic special 'reduced for the holiday' tolerances and with 8 500 infractions that will have the department of morons fine exposure getting up towards a million bucks.
Do the serving morons pay the fines incurred while driving the company fleet vehicles or will we have the charade of the NZTA paying themselves with their own money that once upon a time was expropriated from a hard working law abiding taxpayers under duress by a rapacious government that employs the aforementioned  morons on our behalf.
I understand some of those involved "have been spoken to"
That simple statement alone has me recalling the legend where Todd Blackadder was given a warning by a SA ref and on re-joining his Crusader mates under the posts  for the penalty attempt was suggested to have said, "ref says we are doing fine keep it up boys"

Will there be any consequences, alas probably not but it is somewhat reassuring that in spite of their  seriously ott rhetoric and garbage "seen to be doing something", deep down  they do not believe the rubbish  they spend all that wasted money on with advertising campaigns.  That must have that sector of the economy feeling like those lucky bastards from Toll Holdings did, when malicious Mad Mickey fronted with the dosh to repossess a train set nobody else in the world wanted at any price.

I can imagine all those at the top including motor mouth Andy Knapstead, Supt Dave Cliff, The  Honourable Simon Bridges MP,  CE Geoff Dangerfield will all be charged with conspiracy to commit  gross negligence by their staff while failing to protect the NZ Road Users.
Then Helf an safty could charge them with failing to protect staff from identifiable dangers.

I guess it is not only the lower ranks who oppose the revealing introduction of GPS technology, the "Indians" will be dreaming of the chiefs being forced to remove the considerable quantities of egg from their faces as a minimum mea culpa.
Resignations,  Nah, someone else to blame surely.

With speeds up to and over 140K a few of them would/should be taken off the roads for lengthy periods with cars impounded.

Full stops can be useful if you want people to understand your, what are admittedly terribly muddled and incoherent thoughts. Good that you admit that government enforcement of high vehicle standards (and investment in the health system) has had an effect on the road toll. You're overstating it - the age of the fleet is going up, so improvements in vehicle standards are not tracking to the downward trend in the road toll, but nonetheless congratulations to the "simian moronic bastards" (sic) at the Police and NZTA.

Ah Howie, if only the simian moronic bastards at Police and NZTA were responsible for improved vehicle engineering on our roads (thankfully Cortinas and Zephyrs are a very rare sight these days) and improvements in first aid response. Then they could take the kudos for having achieved something useful.
