Hate repeating news, But just caught the end of that erpisode,

regardiing the rock throwing incident down the NSW south coast somewhere a while back. A young girl will think about that every day, for years to come. That idiot, if a good boy might only get 2yrs!!,...Marvellous system this country has. Often think of the crazy things we used to do, but just can't comprehend how a human brain of any discription could activate such a appalling act.


Cheers Axle.

The Judge should have put his life in the discretion of the victims hands like he the rock thrower did with hers..

Leave it up to her as to when she wants him released after serving a min 10yrs in jail for what he has done.

She has now thanks to him a life time of health issues and loss of being a proper human being along with loosing her independence.

So true mate,!! But why is there so pressure out there for judges to NOT match the penality to the crime involved.

Interesting you say that. I was heading up a road today and entered a roundabout.

On the left hand side, there was a young fella in a V8 Holden who decided to shoot out and do a left hand turn in the direction I was heading.

To avoid him, it was necessary to slam on the brakes and hope for the best (we were that close).

After going through the roundabout I got the finger, and again as he was passing another car (no indicators).

For the life of me I can't understand the mentality of some young people. Is it ignorance or arrogance?

Regards

Kim

Kim, as an ex-cop, one of my favourite sayings was, "You cannot educate an idiot." They have no mentality, and you must treat them accordingly.

I don't know what it's like up your way, but things are not good down here is Latte town.

As an ex copper I think everyone would want to hear your point of view.

Funny things roundabouts if there is an accident at one assuming you dont have an independant witness the insurance companies apportion the blame on the driver of the vehicle with the damage to the front . Just think about that.....dont enter too fast cos if a driver throws his car in front of you he is on the roundabout, and the law states you must give way to a vehicle ON the roundabout. There is no such thing as give way to the right.....makes you think. Some people enter fast only looking to their right.....silverback

Returning home the other day and a little crumple box passed me on a blind bend with unbroken lines at a zillion miles an hour. I was convinced that I'd find a fireball just up the road.
"Serves the %$^&*#@ right, I thought. I'll just go straight past. There's no way I'm gonna offer assistance!" I thought.

Then I remembered

That was someone's son/daughter.

My anger was tinged with sadness, that such blind arrogance and self importance could unknowingly bring a life sentence of misery for so many.

I don't think there's any magic cure. What I do know is that spoiling any kid isn't a great idea. Neither is the opposite :)
I brought mine up by "teaching them to drive" from around 4yo. We'd look and discuss what could happen etc etc. By the time they got round to actually doing a driver test, they were careful cookies.

Having lost my mum in a road accident also brought reality home to them.

Personally, I'd like every learner driver to have to listen to the police who attend fatals.
And I'd like to see oldies like me doing refresher courses in road rules and driving etc.
Sadly you can't legislate patience, thought for others etc.
It's a different world these days from when I learned to drive...the cars are safer but the drivers are more lethal.
