Ramming speed in a Blue Ford Falcon

By johnboy - 24 January 2012 25

A 31-year-old Watson man was arrested overnight for traffic and drug offences.

Between 10.30pm and 11.30pm last night (Monday, January 23), ACT Policing Operations received several calls from members of the public reporting a blue Ford Falcon station wagon ramming into other motorists.

This included reports of the Ford Falcon tailgating at least four separate vehicles with its high beams on, and ramming into these vehicles when they stopped at traffic lights.

Around 11.45pm, a City patrol located the Ford Falcon driving on Cotter Road. A search of the man and his vehicle resulted in police seizing approximately 500 grams of cannabis, 21 pills suspected to be MDMA and around 7.2 grams of white powder, suspected to be heroin.

The man was taken to the ACT Watch House, where he was charged with two counts of furious, reckless or dangerous driving and three counts of trafficking a controlled substance.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.

My daughter was in one of the cars he rammed. Scared the daylights out of her and her friends. As for

“Presumably a *Public* school teacher?” – not an ACT one. I just looked Matthew Ivor Martin up in the directory and he’s not there. Sorry HenryBG – take your prejudices elsewhere.

“Another one for Andrew Barr to worry about. Or did he give away the education portfolio?” Chris Bourke is the current minister for Education in the Legislative Assembly.

Oh the humanity….bringing facts to an over inflated RA presumption argument, how dare you!!!! :p

assuming this person does not have insurance, who will pay for the damage to the other cars?

Well, he has a job, so the insurance companies involved will pursue him for it.

Assuming they themselves have the right insurance. Many people don’t.

I was once (only once thankfully) crashed into by a young lass who wasn’t insured. My insurance picked up the tab and then went after her. Third party property should be compulsory IMO. Wouldn’t have helped this bloke though. When the blood test comes back his insurance company will run a mile.

Between 10.30pm and 11.30pm on a Monday night in Canberra? I’m surprised there was any other cars on the road for him to ram!

No matter the punishment he receives, he’ll never teach again.
