Road stats shame cops

- +

In the past couple of days the government issued figures pertaining to the small number of advertising offences committed by some liquor outlets, the number of motorists arrested for alcohol offences and the injury/death figures for the holiday period. 

I cannot see any figures for injuries and deaths of young people riding motorcycles underage, those not wearing helmets, unlicensed drivers/riders, children standing unrestrained in motor vehicles, and so on.

Perhaps these figures aren't released because they will show that the police are not doing their jobs.
