Police have revealed 17 vehicles were involved in multiple collisions that caused traffic headaches on the Tuggeranong Parkway on Thursday morning (19 May).

Officers are now seeking witnesses to the incidents on the parkway near the Cotter Road overpass.

At about 6:45 that morning, police said a wheel came loose from a car and landed in the northbound lanes. Multiple vehicles swerved to avoid it, resulting in a nine-vehicle collision at the end of the Cotter Road on-ramp heading north.

Further collisions occurred near the fixed speed cameras in the north and southbound lanes, causing extensive traffic delays.

Did we stop doing vehicle inspections….

Hopefully once they have the footage they upload it to youtube for monetization, that way we can afford more police.
