My family and I had an interesting experience this morning while driving southbound along the parkway.
Just past Kambah High we noticed what appears to be stolen car (red hatchback, smashed rear window, no plates) come out of some trees on our left and proceed at speed along the nature strip. Other drivers on the Parkway that noticed this moron either moved to the right-hand lane to give the car room to get onto the Parkway itself or like us, slowed down to reduce any opportunity for this moron to crash into us. Keeping away from this idiot was becoming even more critical as, looking ahead, he was approaching a steep incline that leads to one of the underpasses that go under the parkway.
The driver seemed to at least have have some sense as he suddenly realised his position and slammed on the brakes. Watching him as we went slowly past, he jumped out of the car and legged-it back up towards the houses.
Perhaps the most surprising thing in this event was that the driver wasn’t a kid but a guy who appeared to be in his 40’s. He was also overweight and wearing a blue and yellow t-shirt, what appeared to be blue trackpants and a baseball cap. My wife went to take a photo but couldn’t get to her camera on time. Did anybody else see this incident?
While I don’t believe there will be much the authorities can do, this information will be passed to the police.
