Simon Corbell is trumpetting the success of the catchily titled “Operation Globin II” under which 20 odd cars since February have been impounded from a mottley range of on road miscreants the ages of which vary from 17 to 45.
“The aim of this legislation is to ensure that the message gets through to offenders that this behaviour endangers to all road users and will not be tolerated.
â€œSeizing their car, which to some of these offenders is their most prized possession, has been proved here and in other jurisdictions as the most powerful way to reinforce that message.â€
Hmmm, in what other areas could we apply this thinking? Could we send a message to misbehaving corporations by confiscating their offices?
And are these cars ever going to get auctioned?
