GeoffBrock’s loss of his first wife Arlene in a car crash is still raw for the Cabinet Minister and Independent Member for Frome.
Mr Brock reflected emotionally on the incident which happened 23 years ago while speaking about the State Government’s consideration of reducing speed limits on country roads to help save lives.
“It has a life-long impact on the family – it is something you never get over,” he said.
“People never understand it unless they have been through it.” He said Road Safety Minister Tony Piccolo was consulting country councils about the speed limits they believed were appropriate for their local roads before making a final decision.
“We also need to take responsibility for our own actions on the road,” he said.
“It is not always the fault of drivers, but I do see so many idiots on the road. People need to drive to the conditions.”
