Unlicensed 15yo caught drink-driving

While posting this I just witnessed a black Volvo driven by an elderly man in a hat drive the wrong way up National Circuit…

Just stolen from the ABC website:

Unlicensed 15yo caught drink-driving

A 15-year-old boy has been charged with drink-driving after a police pursuit in northern Canberra this morning.

Police attempted to stop the teenager’s car on Cotter Road but he failed to stop and they followed him through the suburb of Higgins.

Police say the chase lasted for five minutes with speeds reaching up to 150 kph in a 90 kph zone.

The driver was arrested and breath-tested, allegedly recording an blood alcohol reading of 0.042, more than twice the legal limit.

Police say the boy was also unlicensed and the car was unregistered.

He is expected to appear in the ACT Children’s Court today.

Given our numerous “car with idiot driving” posts of late, here we have another candidate for natural selection. Who’s to be he gets a nice stern talking to by the kiddie court and will continue to reoffend until he kills someone.

What’s Your opinion?

one effective measure may be (with the familys consent and appropriate sensitivities in mind) to make the kid view a crash body identification.

I thought this was used in cases like this one? Maybe not I guess….

So if you are all willing to give this kid the above punishment, then there would be no problems if he ran into a tree and killed himself, or better still knocked over someone in the bus interchange.

But hang on, he’s only a kid when theres someone better to blame.

We saw a car driving on the wrong side of Horsepark drive today for ages.
They finally realised when some oncoming traffic came at them.

If this kid wants to play with the big boys and act like a grown up, then he should be treated like one, throw him in jail for 6 months.

Make him do 15 hours a day community service, take him out on a boat and hold him back from the jaws of a great white, just to scare him a little.

Does anyone know where he got the car from, was it stolen?

What a f@#ker!

Let’s call him the Cotter Kid. The cotter Kid is a good advertisement for retrograde abortion.

And smack, well, I’ve covered that ground in many a topic before. I don’t think I can win any converts here on that subject. They’re just…so…god-damn…moronic!

That explains why your parents didn’t put you down, Maelinar.

Its not him. Apparently he is already in quamby and has just been granted bail to attend drug rehab. See ABC news link.

More importantly, why hasn’t there been crazy rants about the Police getting in pursuits and how wrong/bad/dangerous/irresponsible it is. Have I accidently logged onto another blog site????????
