P-plater jailed over fatal crash (not a bike)

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' at netrider.net.au started by incitatus, Dec 14, 2005.

  1. A few moments of stupidity, one dead, others injured, and a young life ruined. This could easily be several posters to this board who display the same 'I'm so good it can't happen to me', attitude. I'm not judging, just concerned, and aware of the potential for wasted lives.

  3. Sad, sad, waste.

    More fuel for the silent pursuit debate?

  4. Possibly. But it's not clear from the report that he was involved in pursuit at all. If he was, it's unlike the media to miss an opportunity to make the point.

  7. Sad situation indeed.

    Bottom line i suppose is that someone died as a direct result of his stupid actions. He has to pay a price for that. Will jail actually help him....who knows he may come out worse. But i think yes, he deserves to be punished and jail prob is appropriate.

  11. From memory this happened up near the interesection of Kings Rd & the Melton (aka Keilor-Melton Rd) Highway.

    I seem to remember it may have involved trying to avoid a booze bus at the time but I could be mixing up my crashes here.....
