Finish the Switch to Metric Measurements

Comment 7th July 2010

To amend the Weights and Measures Act to remove Imperial Measurements and complete the switch to Metric Measurements.

Why does this matter?

This country currently runs two measuring systems, the old Imperial system and the Metric system.  This state of affairs should be clarified by removing Imperial measurements and concluding the change to Metric that has so far taken nearly 40 years.  Everyone from 1972 has been taught metric in school, the scientific and engineering industries use it, most, if not all, vehicles have metric bolts and fasteners so why are we still using Imperial?  The switch should have been done fully and completely instead of compromised.
