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?
