The ACT Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, John Hargreaves, has announced a wombat warning specific to the residents of Bonython.
Bonython residents seem particularly unaware that the planet is inhabited by creatures other than themselves. Signs have been erected in the suburb to warn of the imminent danger of a wombat and car interfacing at speed.
Minister Hargreaves states:
â€œWhen you see a sign highlighting that kangaroos, wombats or even ducks are in the area, please slow down.”

Evidently, in Mr Hargreaves mind, the absence of any sign is implicit approval to drive however the hell you want.
This is reminiscent of the “No lines – do not overtake unless safe” message, which implies that if lines are present on the road, you can overtake when unsafe to do so.
