On the run in Conder

By johnboy - 25 October 2013 9

ACT Policing is seeking the assistance of the public to identify the driver of a vehicle who fled from police last night (Thursday, October 24).

Around 11.05pm, police attempted a traffic stop on a dark coloured Holden Clubsport on Eggleston Crescent in Chifley. The driver failed to stop for police, and a pursuit commenced.

Police pursued the vehicle through Athlon and Drakeford Drive where the suspect vehicle reached speeds in excess of 180km/h. Police terminated the pursuit and the vehicle was last seen in the vicinity of Lanyon Marketplace in Conder.

The pursuit lasted approximately eight minutes.

Anyone who can assist police in identifying the driver or the dark coloured Holden Clubsport involved in the pursuit is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I don’t think you should get charged for attempted murder unless you attempt to murder someone. 180km/h in an 80 zone has the potential to kill many people yes, but so does doing 80 in an 80 zone, doing 40 in an 80 zone, driving while drunk, using the phone while driving, having bald tyres etc. Hell, you could be driving perfectly and have a mechanical failure which causes your car to veer off and kill a bunch of people. An attempted murder charge for speeding is stupid.

180 km/h? Christ that’s quick on a public road. Or anywhere else at all, really. This could’ve ended very badly for some innocent driver who got in the way of this arsehat.

Time to get serious and charge those sorts of arsehats with attempted murder each and every time. I thought they tightened the rules in NSW after that little girl died, but it still seems like if through good luck alone an arsehat doesn’t cause any harm they kinda get away with it even though their intention was to be as randomly dangerous and irresponsible as possible.

Should be able to get a picture of the car, but they won’t be able to id the driver from it.

Recycle the car into something useful and if the owner can’t be identified as the driver charge him with supplying a deadly weapon with an equivalent sentence. And no sob story about how he needs the car for work or his family needs him to have the car to drive them places.

Sad that they didn’t get the number plate. That might have helped.

All the certification is done by Holden.

no I meant from a marketing and sales point of view. The car is sold as a HSV Clubsport, not as a Holden Clubsport

There can’t be too many of those particular vehicles around. I reckon the rozzers should be able to nail him fairly shortly. I can’t see them letting that sort of nonsense pass through to the keeper.

Heaps of Clubsports around and unfortunately, the older models are affordable to half wits like this. Should be able to get a picture of the car, but they won’t be able to id the driver from it.

I doubt the Athllon P2P is calibrated to pick up real criminals.
