Burnout legend on the run in Gordon

By johnboy - 6 September 2013 31

A 20-year-old Gordon man will be summonsed to ACT Magistrates Court on multiple traffic charges after an incident in Gordon early this morning (Friday, 6 September).

About 1.30am Police observed a dark-coloured Holden Commodore utility perform a prolonged burnout at the roundabout intersection of Woodcock Drive and Knoke Avenue.

Police activated their emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to cause the vehicle to stop. The driver accelerated away on Woodcock Drive.

After about thirty seconds, the driver stopped the vehicle in a driveway. Both the driver and passenger fled on foot. Both men were taken into custody with the passenger released a short time later.

The driver was transported to Tuggeranong Police Station where he was required to undergo breath analysis. He returned a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.092.

As the holder of an expired licence he was issued with an Immediate Suspension Notice (ISN).

The vehicle has been seized by police. The man will face court on a date yet be fixed.

Why would you crush cars when you can auction the roadworthy ones off and make back some of the cost of dealing with these idiots?

Good question. I’d imagine it would be:
A. So the ex owner doesn’t get one of his mates to bid for it on his behalf.
B. So the ex owner doesn’t track down the buyer and offer to but it back (with or with out an “or else” clause).
C. They get to feel the pain of knowing that, not only have they lost their car, but it’s going to end up crushed into a cube.

As long as theres no way the offender has a way of getting his car back through family or friends.

Yep, better to recoup costs from seized assets.

“The man will face court on a date yet be fixed.”

DO you really think (not withstanding his expired licence) that a burnout warrants someones personal possession to be destroyed?

I cannot believe the thought process of some people

Actually, I think morons who do burnouts should be locked away for attempted murder.

Please believe it,this is society talking.

Hopefully someone gets how simple it is.

The guy has no respect for the laws.
He will keep on driving.
Take away his ability to drive (car) OR
Take away his freedom

This from 2010. There was a halt to proceedings but a few days ago the SA govt gave the go ahead to crush cars after a court decision. Better believe that thought process.

Well, he’s a 20 year old tosser. And he was drunk. While he was drunk he engaged in dangerous behavior on the road. While doing this dangerous drunken young tosser stuff, he was also unlicensed, and hence he was uninsured so that if he injured a third party it’s their tuff shit.

I don’t want dangerous drunken young unlicenced tossers with no self control on the road with me. Such people are a threat to me and my wife and my kids, and all the other decent normal people in Canberra. So if the state chose to impound and destroy his vehicle, I’d be in the enormous crowd with CGN cheering them on.

And if you think the property rights of arsehats like this take precedence over the wellbeing of the rest of the community, then I reckon you should spend a long time reflecting on how you’d feel if that bloke had lost control of his vehicle and, for example, crashed into you and killed your baby son while doing his stupid senseless bloody burnout.

Doing burn outs in front of Police. Now, that is a bit of special!

LSWCHP 2:33 pm 06 Sep 13

Doing burnouts while unlicenced. What a genius level intellect.

And as for…..”As the holder of an expired licence he was issued with an Immediate Suspension Notice (ISN).”

I interpret this to mean that because he was officially prohibited from driving (due to having an expired licence), he has now been given an ISN which means he is officially prohibited from driving.

I imagine that after receiving the ISN, he went back to his car, hopped in and drove off because that’s what these idiots do. And in a few months time he’ll be picked up again for doing burnouts while drunk unlicenced and suspended.
