Bushy,

mmmm, not the type of story we need, but I wonder how many parking inspectors are assulted a year and we only hear the one related to a 4by.

We need a "Man in 4wd rescues Lassie" type story.

If these people hate 4wds mayb we should stop using them in the RFS (NSW Rural Fire Service) during the fire season to see how quickly they appreciate 4wds.

"Moments later the inspector was hit by a car and was treated at the scene by ambulance officers for minor injuries." - Obviously he didn't have a bull bar.

ROFLMAO.

Very good.

By the way, did you see that he was charged with "driving a motor vehicle furiously" What th!? I've been furious whilst driving plenty of times recently whilst listening to crap on talk back radio. Might go arrest myself.

By the way, my response to the actual incident is going to be

"So? what's your point? You think the 4WD is possessed and made him do it or do you think he probably would have reacted the same way if he had driven a Porch? Only a Porch would have cut off his legs."

Blame the nut behind the wheel, not the car.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, if he can get hit by a 4wd in North Sydney and only gain minor injuries out of it than what does that say about 4wd saftey? Must be pretty good eh? ;-)

LOL - What a crock of crap, yeah you can just see the editor was having a feild day with that one to try and make it look good. I wonder what really happened...

The bloke must have strong to be able to pick up the 4wd and swing it to hit the Parking Officer.

Funny you should mention this bushfix,

A year or so ago in SA (Norwood was the suburb) a man was mowed down by an 80 series on a footpath and died. The driver accidentally hit his mate instead of the intended victim incidentally, which matters not too much to my point. But is it that ALL 4WD OWNERS HAVE A PROPENSITY AND DISPOSITION TOWARD MURDER????!!!!! Some narrow minds may draw this conclusion.

narrow minds could draw any conclusion.
I know I have read plenty of stories of "hit by high powered vehicle" or "the elderly driver blah blah" etc etc. Perhaps the parking inspector WAS hit by a 4X4?
Newspaper articles can certainly appear (and be) biased.
But would you like your newspaper to read " a man was hit by a car today in australia" or " a bank was robbed today" and no more detail?
