Tyre slashing in city suburbs over the last couple of weekends is outrageous.
The mindless random vandalism has cost residents of Milson and Roslyn thousands of dollars in non-budgeted for tyre replacements. And this in itself puts a further strain on already stretched household budgets. These are not wealthy suburbs.
Some car owners have had their tyres stabbed for a second time, adding to the stress and worry residents must feel about vehicles parked outside. Not even cars parked up driveways escaped.
As disturbing as these mindless acts are, it’s also worrying that so few of those affected contacted police. Local tyre companies say they have been busy replacing stabbed wheels, but on Friday, police said they had received only two complaints.
The Tribune story on P6 has more details, but what does it say if people can’t even be bothered reporting this kind of crime?
