To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the citizens of Western Australia respectfully shows:

Last year, over 3,300 people died on Australian roads;

Alcohol is a factor in 50% of road deaths;

Alcohol advertisements do not show the perils of driving after drinking alcohol ;

Alcohol advertisements are glamorous and increase their effect on teenagers, indicating drinking alcohol as the social pastime;

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Parliament will legislate to ' Ban the advertising of alcohol from commercial television and radio'.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
