Today's comments by disgraced former Minister and current chair of the Road Safety Council, Bryan Green, that he didn't even know when a major advertising campaign was due to commence should come as no surprise.
It is worrying that Mr Green isn't across the facts but is still prepared to attack the Tasmanian Liberals for daring to suggest ways to address road safety issues.
If a bipartisan approach to road safety is going to work, then the Government needs to embrace it too and not try and use it as a way of muzzling the Opposition.
We will never back away from suggesting ways to increase road safety and we will never back away from scrutinising the performance of the Government. That is our job and that is what Tasmanians expect us to do.
I have been nominated by the Tasmanian Liberals as our representative on the Road Safety Council. Consistent with the spirit that the Council should operate in a bipartisan way, the Tasmanian Liberals believe that the chair of the Council should be handed over to a community member, not one of the three politician members.
I urge the Government to consider this, so that Tasmanians can have faith that the Road Safety Council will be completely focused on improving road safety and not about providing an avenue for disgraced politicians to get some cheap publicity.
