Flunking at overtaking

By Barcham - 21 May 2013 22

Daring!

Devil_n_Disquiz sent us this in:

This clown had already passed us on Brindabella Road between Uriarra Village and Cotter Road. He passed over double lines then too. Not only that but on the crest of a hill. If a motorcycle had been coming the other way it would have been all over red rover. I specifically mention a motorcycle as they use this road to test their Casey Stoner wannabe skills.

On Cotter Road he overtook a campervan with his usual contempt for the rules of the road.

Oh, and just in case anyone asks…taken with iPhone 4S by front seat passenger. 🙂

Cheers

I’ve reported someone for the same sort of thing before (with photo evidence). Cops took my details and said they would call me. Still waiting and it was over a year ago now.
Good luck getting anything done about it. Cops don’t care.

You’ll note that the advice that I offered was to take a much more active role in ensuring that it was followed up. I developed this view after the initial non-action when I reported the near miss with a 4WD out at Wallaroo Rd. (you might remember the video on TRA late summer). If I had not followed up twice then nothing would have happened. It isn’t a matter of “don’t care” necessarily, they are flat out most of the time and it is easy for something to slip off the table. I just ensured that it was put back on the table a couple of times.

If the police have to be threatened to do their job, it’s really sad.
