A FINE OL’ MESS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

FOR many years, I have been cry­ing out for more spe­cialised traf­fic po­lice to be vis­ual on our roads.

Noth­ing makes you drive bet­ter than the sight of a traf­fic cop.

Speed cam­eras do noth­ing to cut our shock­ing road toll as they are only there to bring in “road tax” for the gov­ern­ment of the day.

Fair dinkum, can some­one please ex­plain what good is it to re­ceive a speed­ing fine days af­ter the of­fence?

Es­pe­cially when you can­not re­mem­ber the day, time or place.

Bob Kucera, the now-re­tired, high-rank­ing po­lice of­fi­cer, made me smile when on tele­vi­sion he stated you can drive to Albany now and never see a po­lice ve­hi­cle.

Well, Bob, if they don’t lis­ten to you, I might as well keep quiet. CHAR­LIE GIB­SON, Fal­con.
