ACT learner caught speeding in Sydney

By Thumper - 28 April 2008 11

ABC online is reporting that a 23 year old learner has been pinged for doing 160 kpm in Sydney.

This is bad enough on its own, however, the man’s father was the licensed driver in the car!

What’s Your opinion?

Big deal, this sort of thing happens from time to time. I certainly exceeded then (then) 70km/h speed limit while on my L’s, as my father deemed it appropriate to teach me to handle a car at highway speeds before I was out by myself. Of course, we did lots of other learning first, and found very quiet roads on which to practice technique. I must admit, however, that I never got to anywhere near 160 on my L’s!

I wish the media would stop confusing Queanbeyan Locals with ACT residents. There is a clear deliniation between the two Cities (If you can call Queanbeyan that)

I’ve got a $20 that says the dad was sporting a mullet, a pair of stubbies and had an open can of VB in his hand!!

OR

They got lost in a WRX in the middle of Lakemba and were trying to find their way out?

You choose!

Confirms my theory that this behaviour is hereditary.

How is one supposed to break Justin Pickering’s record without practice under the supervision of an experienced driver?

But officer, I was just keeping up with the flow of traffic….

your dad fell asleep while you were on your learners… driving coast roads?? Sounds like a very trusting dad to me!

Ahh it takes me back to when my dad taught me how to drive…
