By Peter Walker-Smith and Matt FitzgeraldGreenfield Daily Reporter / 3 April, 2019″There’s no doubt the safety of your car is a top priority for the local authorities.”
That is how Peter Walker Smith, the Greenfield Regional Police Commissioner, described his assessment of how well Greenfield and the rest of the state was doing in the fight against car accidents.
“If it’s a serious accident, it’s probably going to cost you,” he said.
“The first priority is to make sure your car’s safe and that’s why we’re trying to make the car as safe as possible.”
Then you’ve got to make that car safer, and then you’ve also got to reduce your risk.
“It’s a difficult balance to strike, but it’s one Mr Walker Smith said he was keen to see established car manufacturers take more responsibility for the safety and security of their vehicles.”
I’ve worked in this industry for years and I know that manufacturers take responsibility for their cars,” he explained.”
It’s really important that manufacturers don’t just sell the cars.
It’s important that they have the safety infrastructure that they need.
“The issue of car safety and the wider issue of transport is something that has been on the agenda of the Greenfields Regional Police Commission since 2015, when the Regional Plan for the Region was drawn up.
The Regional Plan outlined a number of priorities, including: protecting the environment, protecting our towns and cities and providing more and better services.
We did a lot of work in the area, we developed our regional plan and we put it out to the community, to all the relevant agencies, to see if there was any interest in it.””
We wanted to ensure that we had a regional plan that addressed the safety issues,” said Mr Walker.
“We did a lot of work in the area, we developed our regional plan and we put it out to the community, to all the relevant agencies, to see if there was any interest in it.”
It took about three months for the Regional Planning Commission to give their consent to the Greenland Regional Plan, and Mr Walker said it was a significant milestone.
“You don’t know how big this project is going to be for the future, but I think the whole process has been extremely well received by the community,” he added.
“There was a lot that was done and the communities support it and that really speaks volumes.”
The regional plan is now being implemented by the regional council, the state government and the Greenlands Regional Council itself.
It is expected to provide for the following:A comprehensive and comprehensive plan to ensure the safe use of motor vehicles by all communities in the Green Field.
The development of a new regional road network including an arterial route, a regional bus route, and a new arterial traffic system that will provide for a safer and more integrated travel experience.
The extension of existing bus routes, to enable the use of Greenfields to destinations in the south of the State.
“A new regional rail line will be constructed to enable Greenfields and the surrounding areas to get a higher frequency of services, which will allow for the rapid development of businesses, retail and services, and provide for faster access to Greenfields via the rail network,” said the Regional Council.
The plan has also included a set of recommendations for local government to implement to support regional growth.
One of those recommendations is for the introduction of an independent car-sharing scheme that would provide people with a range of cars at home to help reduce the number of accidents.
The regional police commissioner has also said the area will be better protected from car theft, and will be more likely to be targeted for other crimes such as drug dealing and burglary.
“Every community is going through an identity crisis, it just seems like every time we see a car involved in an accident, the numbers get higher and higher,” he stated.
“In order to reduce these incidents, we need to get rid of these cars.”
Mr Walker believes there are two primary reasons for the high number of collisions in the region.
One of them is the level of pollution that is causing serious problems for the environment.
The other reason, and this is more of a concern for Mr Walker, is the fact that many of the accidents that are reported to the police happen in residential areas.
“At the moment, in Greenfields, the majority of car accidents are not serious,” he stressed.
“Some of the more serious ones are the ones that involve cars with serious, dangerous problems, such as a collision with a tractor trailer or a vehicle travelling at speeds that are going to seriously endanger people.”
Mr Smith says that as well as the obvious benefits of improving safety, there is also a lot more that can be done to improve community health and safety.
“One of the reasons we’ve had so many crashes is because we have a very poor public health system,” he remarked.
“So a lot is being done to address that.”
When we have more cars in the city, we’ve got better health outcomes because there’s less traffic in the CBD.
