Re: Victorian police fine 1 in 4 cars for speeding but fail to catch drink drivers.
SHortage of recruits eh? I think it might have something to do with waiting lists at hospitals.
What's the link you ask?
Well, to get in the Victorian Police TMU branch (Traffic Management Unit or Highway Patrol everywhere else) you need a labotomy to remove the part of your brain involved in rational and logical thought. So, to get this op you have to join the waiting lists at hospital and so the vicious circle closes. Then you have to go and get plastic surgery to cover the scar.
Honestly, the Victorian Police should think seriously about just how badly they are erroding their position in society and the relationship they should hold with normal law abiding citizens. A recent speed zone change near my work from 80 to 60 (with no other road changes) was strangely accompanied by a Police blitz (in other parts of this fine city where such a thing occurs and Peter Batchelor Minister for Revenue gets done he'd somehow have the speed zone change reversed again and claim he wasn't driving unsafely).
It's a pity almost everyone in Victoria now thinks road safety policy is a scam of raping people's wallets instead of something constructive. We can only thank a federal coalition government for stopping the strangest practices getting wind in their sails!
