Creative police beat the airport traffic

By ant 5 October 2007 23

Yesterday morning, heading into Canberra from the East, I was coming down the hill and looking at the airport spread out before me.
Lately, the cops have been hanging around Fairbairn a lot. I think they have some kind of facility there. And on this occasion, as I trundled past the dying arboretum, there was a cop car hoping to enter the traffic on Pialligo Ave, from Fairbairn (the old RAAF base). Sitting there, waiting for a gap to make his right turn.

Well, he had buckley’s. Heavy nose to tail traffic in both directions, as normal, and it would become a mobile carpark closer to the airport entrance. Sucko, thought I. Enjoy the daily traffic.

Well, the police evidently felt a sudden need to be moving again, because suddenly their lights lit up, the siren started, and they moved out onto the road heading back towards Canberra. Fascinated, I watched as they wove around traffic that was pulling over for them, wondering how long it would work for, and they disappeared.

Can I get me some of those lights and a siren at Supercheap Auto?

What’s Your opinion?

I have lived in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Wagga and Albury and they are considerate drivers. Canberra drivers……. what can I say, full of importance, do nothing but complain, cant merge and don’t know how to use roundabout’s, must be the public servant.

Ha!!! Public Servants.

Good one!!!

It is definitely up there with the most outrageous incidents in 2007.
