Car Accident in Palmerston

By ginag 19 December 2006 30

Does anyone know about the car accident in Palmerston last night on the corner of Kosciuszko and Tiptree?

A car was doing burnouts in the IGA carpark and came down to the roundabout then took out another at the roundabout. When taking off the car took out the light pole next to the houses that back onto Kosciuszko.

The light pole came down on the road and blocked the road.

It took 15 minutes for the police to respond to the 000 call (we called twice). So it was left to the residents of Palmerston to direct traffic at 12.15am in their PJ’s.

What’s Your opinion?

Who has a midnight domestic anyway ?

Mael, there was a midnight domestic in Melba last night.

My junkie sister and bf were off their faces. Spent the night in the “tank” to boot. Blood everywhere.

“Who has a midnight domestic anyway ?”

I think most people would be surprised at how many occur late at night/early morning. Often this is caused by someone coming home drunk/high/angry and taking it out on their partner.

still no word on the apprehension of the F#ktard?
I think all riotacters can be excused from jury duty (for this, and probably any othercase) on account of their obvious pre-formed opinions. Still, court hearings are only a poor tool of justice, one lacking in the the immediate gratification of alternatives, such as …lynchings.

The cops will always respond to a domestic first, as well they should. Although someone might run over a downed lightpole, don’t forget they have a big steel, padded cage around them for protection.

I also support Nik’s comment that members of the public should step up to help out when an accident occurs. Let the police do what members of the public can’t, won’t or shouldn’t do (like breaking up a domestic).

Thanks vg

He might not be the only cop who likes to post here……

“I’d like to hear vg on this. Imagine in the local copshop, two calls come in almost simultaneously: one is a “rolling pin domestic”, the other a downed lightpole across a street at 12.15am.
Which case does the one-and-only copcar attend?
-Not saying you’re wrong, just curious.”

I would have thought it was obvious. The domestic 1st

terubo, I would expect 15 minutes to Gungahlin a great response time for a minor car accident without any injuries. The guys who attended obviously didn’t finish their coffee before going.

It sounds like the residents of Palmerston had the issue well in hand and didn’t really need Police assistance. They should have called ACTEW direct.

Did anyone get a pic of the traffic direction in the PJ’s? good for a laugh.
