Today I was heading home from a bbq in Wolli Creek/Earlwood area, along Homer street. As I approached Bexley Rd, a HWP came up behind me, all lights and sounds. He popped onto the other side of the road to pass the queue, turned right through the red in front of traffic (albeit safely), and down towards the M5. I split through to the lights and it turned green as I got there, so I gave some chase to see what the rush was. The good officers turned right through another red onto the M5 on ramp, but strangely weren't pushing through traffic. Instead they were slowing. Weird. When my light came up, I turned onto the m5 as well. Lo and behold, there were our protagonists, setting up the radar to catch people speeding up the hill from the tunnel. I recounted the events in my head, sensationalist media style. Two people were late for work. They put public life and limb at danger by not keeping left, running red lights and speeding, all just to get there destination quicker. Otherwise known as blatant hoons who should be kept off our roads at all costs. Throw them in gaol and ditch the key. Crush their car, they don't deserve to drive. The way I see it is 4 three point offences within 60 seconds - 12 points, that's your license. A reckless/dangerous driving charge could quite easily be added to that, not sure if that carries a mandatory court appearance, can't remember. Either way, we are looking at serious walking time. Oh and by the way, they were wearing some sort of uniform and had a badge in their pocket, which apparently makes it all ok. :-s I honestly wonder who they think they are helping, everyone who witnessed them would have been put incredibly offside by those events alone, particularly given it was all in the effort to get a speed trap set up. I'm a strong supporter of police work typically, I think they have a bloody hard job and cope as well as can be expected. But sometimes they are their own worst enemies, it's acts like these that make me wonder if they deserve the tags of "the filth" or "pigs". Who are we letting take our licenses off us? Not happy.
