Mr J R FRASER - I ask the Minister for the Interior: Will he consider taking some immediate action to have re-erected on the major roads entering Canberra signs drawing the attention of motorists to the fact that in this Territory the law requiring motorists to give way to traffic on their right is enforced? Will the Minister consider the possibility that the increasing number of accidents at intersections here is contributed to by the fact that there are literally thousands of motorists coming to this city from States in which this law is not enforced, whereas in this city motorists have, over the years, been schooled in both the belief and the practice that traffic on the left will give way to vehicles approaching on the right? Further, will the Minister do whatever is possible to halt what I believe is becoming an almost universal disregard of both speed limits and traffic laws in this city?
