Yeah, from me too - Drive safe. (Or watch out for the idiots on the road anyway!)
Some other road users really do need watching out for. Especially those driving the big military look (external only) SUVs (with internal luxury features). And also certain brands of above average price sporty image vehicles.

Are these actually caught for more offences than 'ordinary' cars? If so, we could make the roads safer by banning the import, sale, ownership and use of such vehicles, by brand. Show me the error of that logic.

No, the idiot drivers will just buy something else if they can't buy those.

I anticipated that kind of answer.

I could ask this as a non-political question prompted by the talk of 'bikies' in Australia.

?

It's legislating against a car instead of its driver. Baffling.

OUCH!!! (and a few other 4-letter words would have been suitable...)
At very least I would have said something like "Well that was unfortunate."

That's what happens when one's first language is not English!
The misuse of the apostrophe when the word is plural rather than possesive is quite common among those whose first language actually is English.

Removing the means rather than the source is not addressing the root cause of the problem. Since it is human nature for some of us to behave in a manner deemed unacceptable by the remainder of us, there will always be situations like this.


A social disease.






And that is why I cannot and will not buy a K3.










Or.








Blame it on the livE hociR.

It's a small thing...the apostrophe.....don't sweat the small stuff! Right or wrong, if we get the point, it doesn't much matter to Rupert types.

Checking my oil and ready to roll in about an hour.....Zoom! Zoom!


You guys have fun here.....avoid overeating of lewdfish, if possible!

Best Regards!

He does! And if they get you where you're going in a not to uncomfortable way it's a good plane regardless who made them.
