Lifesaver!



Chris Petrie of Noosa prosecuted for driving his esky at around 25kph on the pavement while intoxicated.

Esky

At least those cops are making things safe for their citizenry, unlike our misdirected, ill-advised, pathetic, avaricious ineffective constabulary who spent the holiday period ticketing motorists at 101kph on dual laned highways while the road toll doubled, people drowned and all motorists felt harassed and threatened for doing exactly what they had done for years without penalty.

Didnt hear if he wore a helmet or not.

Well according to the ODT only $420 worth of fines were gathered by "our misdirected, ill-advised, pathetic, avaricious ineffective constabulary "
Bit over the top don't you think

Speeding is like pregnancy, either your are or you are not, that is the risk the driver takes if they break the Law
I was inTraffic Court last week and all the speeding cases involved speeds in excess of 150 km/ h, they got handed their arses

25kph seems a good speed for a chilly bin.

As someone who has regular contact with said members of constabulary i can tell you that most (apart from the odd snakish traffic/highway cop) happily ignored the 1km directive.

So before you stick your knife in too far GD just remember that the higher the rank in said constabulary usually the small possession if common sense.

Not to mention the greater seperation from actual frontline work.

Thin blue line

I realise making accurate comment and talking sense on a blog is rare and certainly make no claim to do so but I think GD comes close with his post.

For 11 months of the year the NZ Police happily allow drivers, a large percentage of whom drive in high traffic situations while tired after a long day at work, to relax with a 10kph allowance for speed.

One month of the year, the time when most of those mentioned above are seeking to relax away from work, the same police deem that relaxation while driving is unacceptable.

It has been proved over the years that this move does nothing for road safety, any reduction in accident injuries/deaths being attributable to far better roads and far safer vehicles.

The move can only be to financially penalise drivers and increase police statistics, both to cause more funds to be given to NZ Police.

Therefore describing our misdirected, ill-advised, pathetic, avaricious ineffective constabulary as "our misdirected, ill-advised, pathetic, avaricious ineffective constabulary" is far from "over the top".

It is in fact both accurate and sensible.

Whatever argument the Tinman has (is he the one without the brains or the heart? In this case perhaps both) depends on this statement being correct. Given you said it Tinny, can you provide that proof please?

Tinman said...

'tis the heart Teddy, no heart and no.

Edward the Confessor said...

You're just making shit up then, Tinny. Thanks for playing, son.

Adrian said...

If the limit is 100 and you don't want a ticket then drive at 95. Clever dodge eh?

Edward the Confessor said...

Oh but Adrian, if you travel at 95 you will hold up right-wingers in a hurry to get to Antoine's and cause them to explode in anger and frustration causing them to crash into oncoming traffic. That's been proven to the same standard as all other right-wing facts.

The Veteran said...

EtC ... Wot have you got against Antoine's so beloved of the Chardonnay swilling socialist effete? Guess you feel a need to demonstrate your credentials to the great unwashed at local KFC. No matter, each to his own but mind the cholesterol .... Just trying to be helpful.

Edward the Confessor said...

Since when was effete a noun? Poor grammar aside, you really shouldn't describe the National Party establishment in such terms. They drink Pinot.

The Veteran said...

EtC ... Patronising prick. Effete ... Self indulgent and useless. Fits to a 'T' methinks.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Only a trolling dumbarse with pretensions to intellect is unable to tell a noun from an adjective.

(edited for syntax)

Edward the Confessor said...

ROFL. Adolt pwns himself. And Vet. He's a silly.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Our resident fuckwit troll appears not to comprehend the concept of the implied adjective. They didn't teach that in NCEA.

Edward the Confessor said...

"Our resident fuckwit troll appears not to comprehend the concept of the implied adjective."

ROFL, whatever. The truth of the matter is that Vet doesn't know that effete is an adjective (implied or otherwise), not a noun. And you're a moronic.
