    Drastically raising the level of rider training and education is one sure way to change this.

    The cost in terms of personal suffering, lost job productivity, and vehicle repair is of course much much higher than that.
    In other words, the Police abandonment of much traffic control has a tremendous cost to our economy.
    I am told that the police now start speed ticketing at 55-60 kph – that’s double the speed limit.

    So this tells us that the initial hospital cost to individuals and or their insurers is $1,502.73 but that the number of patients treated is on the decline.

    Sounds like progress to me.
