To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Queensland respectfully show:

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

alcohol is a factor in 50 per cent 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.
