Road Works when there are No Works Scam

Here is another typical scam run by the government of Australia.

There are too many numerous sites around that have the same identical circumstances as illustrated in this picture.

Road works signs are set up and barriers put up to inform motorists that there are works being carried out during this time.

Most importantly speed limits are reduced.

Survey carried out across a wide variety of sites indicates otherwise.

There is NO road works present, and there are NO workers on that particular stretch of road barricaded, as indicated.

One of the results of this is the deliberate slowing down and congesting of traffic, where there is absolutely NO NEED for this.

The other main reason for this is to trick motorists in the speed signage and obtaining revenue from the lowered speed limits.

Another revenue raising initiative brought to you by the Australian Government.
