Part of the Great Ocean Road has had its speed limit reduced to 20 ks from 80…because its the Chinese new year….and there are lots of Asian drivers…..so many comments….none of them won’t sound racist so I am leaving this alone…..Except…..we are going to have lots of Chinese driving on our roads so we drop the speed limit to 25% of the speed that the non Chinese drive……Is that very fact racist?  Or has it become a fact…..Asians are bad drivers. Well according to the Victorian Government….
