Beat cops just the ticket


NOTWITH­STAND­ING the dra­mas cur­rently con­fronting Premier Palaszczuk with her some­what clumsy po­lice min­is­ter and her al­leged out-of-con­trol Gold Coast po­lice of­fi­cers, I think it ap­pro­pri­ate that I record my con­grat­u­la­tions to them for a job well done.

I was en route on the M1 last Satur­day morn­ing and I counted as many as one fixed cam­era unit, two po­lice mo­tor­cy­clists, four marked po­lice cars and two un­marked cars all busy do­ing their pa­trols and writ­ing tick­ets.

I re­ceived a ticket on Thurs­day from a very po­lite of­fi­cer for my over­look­ing a flash­ing 40km/hour limit sign out­side Ash­more State School. It is re­as­sur­ing to know that in the face of all your chal­lenges, you all are still in­ter­ested in try­ing to get it right on the ground. Richard K Ti­ainen, Hol­land Park West
