Glad to see police resources being utilised to catch real criminals, not revenue raising with motorists

Statement’s like that just shit me.

You have to realise that this “revenue” raising that people like you are always spruiking on about is only 5 – 10% of what Police do. Granted it is what 90% of what the public see. The rest is broken down to, going to burglaries, dealing with domestics, shoplifters, underage drinkers, helping members of the community then finally paper work.

I’m guessing by your name your a car fan, I’m guessing by the post, you’ve been done for speeding or driving like a tosser. Leave the first statement there, cut the second one out.

Good work to the boys in blue, and for the public who tipped them off.

Why does it shit you? can you tell me that someone doing 7kph over the speed limit is committing more of a crime than someone say committing armed or aggravated robbery?

With all this vandalism to cars, and other crimes going on, it would be great to see the resources going into tracking these people down.

Yes I’m a car enthusiast, no I havent been caught doing anything stupid as I have dedicated racecars for that kind of thing.

Credit was given where credit was due, as stated above, …. but its not due revenue raising with the general motorist

Was Florey always this dodgy or has it just taken a backwards slide lately? I don’t remember it being so crim-filled (with the exception of that stint in the 90s when it was run by drug-dealers, that is).

Well done to the police involved, noticed all going down this morning and witnessed the police take one of the guys down.
