Passed a substantial gathering of police at 2 PM blocking a major thoroughfare, clearly looking to get an early start to wishing as many motorists as possible a happy New Year.
The constabulary revellers also seemed keen to share their party whistles with all and sundry.
I saw a bunch of cops doing a RBT outside EPIC in Mitchell yesterday (Monday) at around 10am. Kudos to them for doing RBT but I would of thoiught there would be more likelyhood of catching more DUIers at 10pm rather than 10am? I know the argument is “random”, as in you probably wouldn’t expect to be pulled over for RBT at 10am but I still acertain that bang for your buck (ie catching more drink drivers) would be the evening. Or at the very least the afternoon.
First time in years I’ve seen a RBT, let alone been tested. Result was negative, incase anyone was wondering.
Probably trying to get all the people who had too much the night before and drive home from wherever and are still over the limit.
Years ago I used to see them constantly on the other side off Adelaide Ave as I drove home from Woden.
Been tested more often interstate than here, and given I do most of my driving in the ACT…
Halloween in Australia?
