Delusional plan

Stephen Conroy is not renown for making any intelligent contribution to Australian society and definitely not renown for possessing a great deal of knowledge on anything - including Intenet, Digital Media, and now traffic management. His latest delusional contribution to his vast collection of bloopers (mind you tax payers funded bloopers) is:
he was confident that placing speed humps every 100 metres on all Australian freeways would protect children - reducing accidents by 100 percent with a "negligible" impact on traffic congestion and travel times. The plan was supported by traffic management trials which had only been conducted in suburban back streets.
Anyone with a shred of intelligence will immediately asked why would children, or to matter any human or animals, be allowed onto a freeways. All freeway entrances have big signs declaring what are permitted to go onto a freeway. 

Is Conroy deluded into thinking freeways are synonymous with suburban back streets?

Is he confused with children inside a car in an accident that could harm them? May be he should ban cars carrying children to use freeway. Or banning children riding in a car at all. That will definitely reduced children injured in car accident by 100%. Banning thing is a widely practice by our authoritarian politicians who lack communication and persuasive skill. This is equally a stupid idea and may be that is Conroy's plan B. Who knows and I will not be the only one surprise if it turned out to be.
