I had an experience on the roads this morning that made me think of all the recent postings about the Police cracking down on “hoons”.
As I was driving to work I was tail-gated by a new looking silver Holden Commodore on Northbourne. I was sticking to the speed limit (in the middle lane) and this obviously annoyed the guy driving the Commodore as he flung his car into the left lane (without indicating) and powered past me.
Then he pulled into the slip lane to turn onto Wakefield Av. and took the corner quick enough so I could hear his read-end breaking traction. I pulled up a couple of cars behind him at the lights onto Limestone and when they turned green, he took off in the right lane, then switched into the left lane (again, without indicating) before running a red light at the Cowper St. intersection.
I really want to know if I should report this guy (I have the rego etc.), but due to the fact that the Commodore had a plethora of antennas and blue and red lights on the rear parcel shelf (that were not on, nor was his siren) the only action I think that would get taken would be against me at the next RBT or vehicle inspection.
