Nothing like a bit of generalisation!

It's a generalisation from the Police who are the heads of the Road traffic departments in Qld and SA. Both have recently posted messages on their official facebook pages with very poor attitudes that they have no interest in helping motorists set up any motorsport race tracks and take great pleasure in seeing them booked. Their final words on the subject is if you dont like it, find another hobby.

I wonder if the attitude to hoon driving might come from the exposure to horrific fatal accidents as part of the job?
I think helping to remove mutilated dead bodies from smashed vehicles might change the way you view things a tad.

I'm totally against moron hoons, they should book them every chance they get. Many of the more dickhead hoons dont even get what they are doing is dangerous or wrong. The problem is when they take it out on everyone, even if they arent caught driving dangerously and they defect a reasonable car because they need to make up numbers. Imagine how you would feel going out for a drive in the Scud, youre driving safely and and a cop pulled you over and defected you?

In the case of these accidents you would think that they would want to see race tracks set up to get these people off the streets.

I was actually referring to your assertion about their IQ.

I have tried in vain to have the powers to be at the sporting car club to unite with the SA govt in having convicted hoons serve part of their penalty by way of community service to have them mandatory attendance to motor racing events like the state titles as volunteer flag marshals. The idea is that they will see racing up close and personal, they will understand vehicles at speed and possibly decide its safer on a track than on a street. As volunteers run thin in marshalling this could get them involved in the sport, they may want to race in their own car. Its a long shot but one that works on a couple of fronts, you get them to do a community event in a sport that is of interest to them rather than collect papers from a  highway. It also solves the need for volunteers.

Its a thought I have tried to promote with the Sporting Car Club and to date they cannot see the feel good merits of uniting with the govt. After 3 years of discussing it with certain people on varying committees…….i give up

I fully agree that the whole safety/speed kills thing is now revenue driven. It's gone way too far in Victoria that's for sure.
No arguing that it hasn't changed driver behaviour permanently and reduced the road toll dramatically, despite millions more vehicles creating overcrowded roads and making the roads more dangerous.

I used to get pulled up constantly whilst driving and obeying all road laws and minding my own business. It pissed me off immensely to say the least. Eventually I twigged that it only happened when I was driving a car with a particular heritage number plate and never in any of my other cars. When I replaced that car the heritage plate went on the new one and the cop stops continued. I reckon I did something at some point in one car with that number plate which caused the Cops to make an alert in their computer system. Now every cop car has number plate recognition software which brings up any warnings/notes etc on the cops in-car computer screen. In the end I was getting pulled up on a monthly basis which was very annoying to put it mildly. After this happening for years and years, suddenly it stopped. My wife NEVER drives my cars; but one time she was forced to take the baby out in my Maserati. Sure enough, got pulled over 2 mins from home by 2 female cops. Screaming baby in the back, they were very sympathetic. No more stops after that, perhaps the female cops deleted the note, don't know.
Reckon it's about 5 years since I've been pulled over by the Cops now.

There is a lot that can be done to improve road safety further. New racetracks won't happen though, far too expensive to set up and run. I would like to see better driver training, perhaps on existing race tracks.
Goober's idea has a lot of merit IMO.

You are a criminal!!! You were doing 51 in a 50 zone! You could have seriously bruised someone’s leg if they walked out in front of you!! It's got nothing to do with Revenue!!!


What a joke!

Hmmmm, did this happen soon after you got the plate - I couldn't see you doing something that bad that they would flag your plate, usually have to do something pretty bad to get your plate flagged .......    :scratchchin:


When I purchased my Yellow Charger back when I lived in Preston, I didn't realise that it was an Ex Drug Taxi and the cops knew it very well. Took me some explaining at 4am one morning and at gun point I may add, that I was only heading to work in Gippsland and that I didn't have a dead body in the boot. Didn't help that the lock barrel had fallen out and I couldn't get the boot open......    :o :doh: :scared:
