Budget cuts for Action Buses and I dare you to tell him he was in the wrong.

By Myself - 14 May 2009 31

Action busses seem to be suffering from budget cuts. Where are the cushions ?


Now who is game enough to tell this guy he was in the wrong ?

What’s Your opinion?

What’s your point? You seem to be arguing that the police have a right to exceed the speed limit even when not responding to an emergency.

The Police speed so that they can catch the speeders ahead.

Then they are required by regulations to activate their lights and sirens. And if that cop car goes all the way to Tuggers police station without picking someone up, they weren’t trying to catch anyone.

I like it when they are doing 120km/h on the parkway, as I just pull in behind and match their speed…

Ha, now I like that strategy.

The Police speed so that they can catch the speeders ahead. As if everyone sees a cop car doing the speed limit, they follow suite. But if you are doing 120k’s on Tuggeranong Parkway & they are doing 130k’s, then they will catch you from behind. I’ll then be behind them doing what is the safest speed.

In response to Killers post, even the police can have a momentary lapse of concentration. The other vehicle had a laugh and drove off…..

Who says the Police vehicle was even moving? It looks fairly low speed…

As for other driving – if you don’t have the facts of what they are doing and how then your comments are worth a whole lot less —-> shutterbug. I wont explain it to you, you figure it out but I can see you jumping to the wrong conclusions…

Shutterbug, getting to Krispy Kreme IS an emergency.

speeding past me at 120 on the parkway so they can get to Krispy Kreme quicker, that’s not okay.

I think they frequent Donut King, shutterbug

Smashed up cop car is not that surprising, I see the police speeding on an almost daily basis (including doing about 80 in a roadwork zone posted for 40) and overtaking me on the parkway, never with sirens on.

Which would you prefer? The police cruising past you, or on your clacker with their lights on, pulling you over because you are a whinging oxygen thief?

If they are legitimately in a hurry to an emergency, regulations require their sirens and lights be activated and in such cases, their use of speed is justified. If they are simply doing 80 in a 40 zone with roadworkers close by or speeding past me at 120 on the parkway so they can get to Krispy Kreme quicker, that’s not okay.

Absolutely Myself, but that means it’s still the drivers fault so they would be in the wrong.

There is no excuse for rear-ending some one plain and simple, but that’s not to say that the damage we see here was caused by such a collision.
