Well I just received a reply to my letter I sent to the Police Commissioner's office asking what new traffic laws the WA Government has on the drawing board, and yes they are looking into these new "Anti-Hoon" laws, aswell as revising the exsisting speeding fines (suprise suprise).
I have no problem with these laws coming into affect, it will get alot of the Scrotes off our roads but there are two down sides to this law.
Firstly, the Police will concentrate most of their efforts on "hoons" than Policing any other traffic infringement (except speeding), if you have mags on your car you will get extra attention from Police on the road around you, take off from the lights fast and your car is taken off you, all the while the Camry driver infront of you can drive 10km/h under the speed limit in the top lane, not indicate before changing lanes, have no idea how to merge into another lane and then take up both lanes while going around a duel lane roundabout, and be left to carry on on his merry way because he's considered a good driver.
And Lastly, this law will give Police more power. You can't tell me some (not all) Police will abuse this power? you get a young guy in a powerful car do nothing wrong, an anal retentive officer pulls him over for a licence check and the young guy mouths off at him. There is nothing to stop this officer confiscating the young guys car, all he has to do is say he saw him take off from the lights fast. The kid is without a car for 2 days, plus has to pay for storage fees and can't do a thing about it. If he wants to take it to court, by the time it comes around he already has his car back
This law makes you Guilty until proven Innocent, unlike evey other crime where you are Innocent until proven Guilty.
What am I going to do about it? nothing, this law will come into affect no matter what happens, the only thing I can do is look after number one - me. Simple solution, don't have a car the stands out (that includes a noisy car) and nothing SHOULD happen.
