Another speedy Canberran faces interstate gaol

By eh_steve - 9 August 2010 20

The Age is reporting that yet another Canberran is facing gaol time after being caught speeding on the way to Melbourne.

The 24 year old man, who has not been named, was arrested on a charge of conduct endangering life Victoria’s North after being detected travelling at 210km/h in a 1993 Honda Coupe.

The man’s car has been impounded and he has been released to be charged on summons.

The comments of a few of Victoria’s top cops included in the article seem to suggest they have a fairly hefty book that they can’t wait to throw at him.

What’s Your opinion?

No such word as ‘gaol’ ….. in what universe? Queanbeyan?

Last I remember we spoke the Queen’s English and not the monged up American English with their many Z’s and Mom. I also wonder how many people can correctly pronounce advertisement too haha.

I’m assuming it was an NSX? I don’t think my ’98 Integra would get up to 210km/h, let alone a ’93.

I note this mistake has been made again by one of your contributors. The word jail is spelt J-A-I-L, not “gaol”. “Gaol” is pronounced “gay-oll” and there is no such word.

I interpreted that comment as an attempt at humour.

Why pick on Queanbeyan? Why not Murray Bridge?
If the world was the shape of a bullock, Murray Bridge would be under its tail…

@#3 – Pretty much any English dictionary will take issue with that statement. But ten points for your pronunciation. Many perps sent to the ‘gay [h]ole’ might think twice about becoming recidivists.

Glad he was caught before he killed somebody. I hope they crush his car into a cube.
