Well in terms of the roads you can see yourself here:I was having a discussion this evening with a Melbourne based client. Due to the nature of their business, they are basically exempt from the restrictions but his observations were interesting. The essential point was that he was amazed as to how many people are moving about, compared with the first lock down. He's armed with a wad of paper-work, justifying his travel, but apparently he's yet to use any of it. No police, no stops to check reasons for travelling.
Obviously anecdotal, but I'm wondering if the observations of others in Melbourne can flesh out the picture?
I have looked at various times during the day and all these roads are way below normal level. 7.30 pm last night looked like 3 am. Looking now at 8.20PM again that is a ghost town.
The major roads near me that I walk or drive on are all quiet during the day.
Only busy places are supermarkets (basically about normal, but not at all busy) and walking paths, tracks etc. The buses I have seen have all been empty.
Last time I was at the supermarket cops were booking someone.
