Hi.

Been lucky enought to spend the last few weekends Tootling around a few natoinal parks, had a great time , But idiots speeding in some areas can make you a bit nervous, especially on blind corners, or when the roads narrow with loose gravel etc. I guess its just a thing now in popular areas the traffic just keeps on increasing!. But i think common sense should always prevail. WE DONT WANT ANY ACCIDENTS IN THESE AREAS!!.

Cheers Axle.

If they do it on normal roads/highways why do you think they'd be any different where the traffic is expected to be less and no cameras or highway patrol?

Idiots will be idiots wherever they are and there are just as many idiots in 4wds as other vehicles.

Axle, my thoughts exactly. I can't see their point. It seems like they want to get their weekends/holidays over and done with so they can rush back to work. No thanks. I prefer to take my time and smell the roses. Holidays and weekends are never, ever long enough :))))))

Sometimes local live near and travel through these road regularly. They get to know the roads so well that they hit the maximum speed they feel safe at.. forgetting about the oncomers who aren't familiar with where to keep to the left a bit more etc.

I know some of the people living down my road move a bit fast.

Still it wrecks a leisurely tour to have the nerves jangled... even more if you get collected.

Axel,

I spend a lot of the summer months in the High Country and have always found some who just have to go faster than you.

Drinking is not a problem for them either, the cans can be thrown into the bush so that no one will see them.

There are some that think that after they are of the black top that the seat belt laws don't apply.

I was talking to the Rangers from Omeo last trip and they were saying that over the holidays they have a police vehicle with them.The number of drivers that get booked for not wearing a seat belt is high. The drivers didn't relies that they are on public roads and that all traffic rules still apply.

Hi wayne.
Good to see police authority in some areas, things get out of control easily on road and off.
