Drivers demands rock throwers take their own medicine
IT IS the scourge that has impacted on drivers across regional NSW and Queensland for years.
Rock throwing has had a comeback in Moree over the last few months, with a number of trucks leaving the town worse for wear.
In short, truckies are sick of being used for target-throwing practice.
Jason P: We are punished and scrutinised time after time to be safe and within the law. Isn’t it about time we demand the same treatment in return? Wouldn’t it be a shame if services stopped to these towns until our safety was guaranteed?
John E: Until the judges start handing out punishment to fit the crime these imbeciles will keep doing it. Sick of soft justice.
Roger J: I have useless louts around where I live too, especially during school holidays. Anything on wheels that moves is “target practice”.
Bloody stupid tourists’ kids staying at a house near me were targeting anything that drove along the street, then scored a hit on a cop’s car, that cured them for some reason!
Chris E: The politicians and legal system let us down continually.
Can’t rely on them to do anything for us if there’s nothing in it for them.
Then all hell will break loose when drivers start taking matters into their own hands because they are sick and tired of waiting for positive action.
