公路(女)瘟神

很多人對女司機有成見,以為她們笨手笨腳、反應遲鈍、常佔著快線開慢車。這也許是以前的情況,如果你來到澳洲,見識一下新一代的女司機,你會完全改觀。她們開車之大膽、魯莽和狠辣,才叫人驚嘆呢。

公路上要打醒十二分精神,碰見這些瘟神,正是無妄之災。

她們很多是新牌仔,買了第一輛汽車;鬼妹不同華人子弟,有父母送第一輛新車,很多都是用幾千元買七八年車齡的款式,其中特別流行的是韓國的Hyundai Excel。這款車是Hyundai的早期產品,性能平平,代步當然沒問題,但決不是貼路性能優秀、高速操控得心應手的勁車。

那些鬼妹在路上緊貼你的車尾,一有空位就扒頭----其他人守規矩的開60公里限速的話,倒是綽綽有餘----她們膽色過人,亂切行車線(很多時不夠位),當正自己在賽車場上開法拉利----你不撞她她撞你,其他人小心則個!

澳洲有些父母管教不嚴,家裡的車匙亂放,年輕人未有車牌偷偷開大膽車是常有的事,這些父母知道了也不重責。有個華人朋友的鄰居便是這樣,還笑笑口地與我朋友談起這件「趣事」。

看過很多次出事的新聞,年輕人開大膽車,半夜出去飛馳,自己想死也算了,還要載其他人:一車九個人,前排三個,後排四個,行李箱兩個。

上星期澳洲有兩宗新聞,第一宗開車的是13歲的女童,裝了兩個年紀大一點,但都是十幾歲的少女,被警察截獲,未出事。三個人都喝了酒,司機的血液酒精含量是0.115%,當然是超標。

另一單沒有那麼幸運,一輛車,車頭蓋上坐兩個人,是30歲的姐姐和19歲的妹妹,車內有另一個十幾歲的妹妹,和30歲姐姐兩個幾歲大的孩子,開車的是一個16歲無車牌的女童。

結果行車之間,姐姐跌下馬路,就在妹妹和孩子眼前,撞爆頭而死!和她一起坐在車頭的妹妹跳下看她,卻給另一輛飛馳而至的汽車撞死!第二輛車的男司機31歲,也是無牌駕駛!

我在公路上開車,經常警惕自己,來來往往的車輛,不知道有多少個司機,是無牌駕駛的。

  1. 警方亦說:不知道要怎樣講才能使人明白當中的危險性!醉酒、邪淫、吸毒,雖香港亦有,但感覺上不及這裡那麼近,那麼普遍。為自己的下一代担心!

  2. 濫藥和酗酒是澳洲社會的大問題。
    那些人不用為口奔馳,無聊得要緊,沒有理想,也沒有好一點的消磨時間方法。

  3. 民眾不懂自律,損害其他人。
    這樣的情況,通常會訂立有關的法例加以懲處,以收警愓、阻嚇及制止重犯的作用。
    澳洲有針對性的措施和切實執行嗎?

    大城市之外,小鎮和鄉間都難得在路上見到一個警察,簡直是三不管。

  5. 一方面,
    部分年輕新牌仔好勝心強,貪求刺激,發生意外恐怕後悔莫及。
    另一方面,
    部分少年無知、好奇、貪玩、易放縱,做事往往衝動而不考慮後果。
    父母有責任管束子女,出事父母或監護人沒有任何法律承擔嗎?
    子女輕易取車開動,父母明顯疏忽!

  6. 車匙不是槍械,沒有法例說一定要鎖起。
    好多人把車駛入自己的車房,車匙長插在車上,不拔走的。
    給孩子拿去開車撞死人也不是甚麼大罪,除非是「教唆」他們去做----不過這樣野就實行不會認!

    The son of a colleague of mine was killed in a horrific car accident in Victoria last week. He was driving from Adelaide to Melbourne and swerved to the incoming lane and was swept over by a truckie. Seems like to be fatique resulting dozing off while driving.

    This should remind us not to take those "Drozy Drivers Die" signages on the roads too lightly!

  19. 雖是死者已矣,但三十歲人重咁癲,一係食咗藥,一係飲忽咗,坐車頭蓋,無嘢好玩?無嘢好做?重要帶埋兩個幾歲仔女一齊去,何以做榜樣?睇來成家都是有問題嘅愛生事家庭,怕且都係食緊政府福利亦未定。

    個無牌男亦三十一歲有多,相信亦非初次牽涉交通事故,只唔明屢反屢放,任由揸大膽車者路上飛馳,政府直情擺件殺人武器於社會。

  23. Dangerous roads ignored by police for soft targets

    MOTORCYCLE police have blamed pressure to meet management's traffic-stop quotas for the increasing roll toll because it means they have to go for soft targets on busy city roads rather than keeping dangerous roads safe.

    The damning summary of why police have struggled to keep the road toll down since a low in 2008 is included in a University of Adelaide study of the SA Police's controversial plan to restructure its highway patrol and motorcycle police patrol sections, reducing motorcycle numbers.

    The study was commissioned by the Police Association to back its case against the changes and included two days of taped interviews with motorcycle police in which some blamed a number of police management decisions for the increasing road toll.

    Some of them said they were forced to target busy roads where they knew they would "get the numbers" to meet management-imposed targets for pulling people over, not "minor rural roads where many fatalities happen".
    The report, Assessing the effectiveness of the proposed restructure of traffic policing in South Australia, states the views of some police that: "A lot of crashes occur on non-major arterial highways.

    SAPOL want traffic police to meet benchmarks, meaning that they will be on major arterial roads to get the benchmarks. They set up in positions where they know they will get the numbers and not on minor rural roads where many fatalities happen."

    Deputy Commissioner Gary Burns attacked the comments by officers as "ill-informed and inaccurate".

    "Of SAPOL's 4400 members only about a dozen officers contributed to this report - none of them being from the senior executive," he said.

    The report was commissioned by the association after SA Police announced it wanted to cut motorcycle numbers from 50 to 22. A compromise cut to 36 has since been reached.

    Other decisions blamed for the increasing road toll included:

    SECONDMENT of motorcycle traffic officers to other duties.

    RESTRICTIONS on city-based motorcycle police operating in rural areas.

    LESS overtime allowed for traffic police to go to country areas.

    Police to review 'under-resourced' taskforce

    ANTI-HOON police officers are forced to "beg, steal and borrow" unmarked cars and other equipment from unrelated units because of under-resourcing, frontline officers have revealed.

    Several patrol officers told The Advertiser yesterday that Taskforce Diagonal had inadequate equipment to tackle hoon driving.

    Hoon behaviour allegedly claimed another life at the weekend. Riverland and West Adelaide footballer Corey Siemers, 17, died after his car collided with a Holden Commodore, which was allegedly racing a dark-coloured Japanese sports car on Marion Rd, Park Holme, about 10.40pm on Saturday.

    His female passenger, 18, remains in a critical condition in Flinders Medical Centre.

    A Renown Park man, 24, was arrested and charged with causing death by dangerous driving and released on bail by a magistrate.

    The man will appear in Adelaide Magistrates Court in August. Police are seeking the driver of a Japanese sports car and his blonde-haired female passenger, after security footage from nearby businesses revealed they would have seen the crash unfold.

    The tragedy comes while Taskforce Diagonal is again under review amid rumours within police ranks the highly successful unit will be disbanded on June 30 or scaled down.

    The six-officer taskforce was formed about 11 months ago but was not issued with its own fleet of vehicles.

    Officers have to regularly wait several hours for a car to become available for patrols or share other equipment, sources say.

    A high-level meeting this week will review the operation of the taskforce, which has arrested and charged 39 hoons, seized 55 vehicles, reported 87 drivers for burn-outs or related offences and issued 367 defect notices in nine months to mid-April.

    Road Safety Minister Jack Snelling and taskforce boss Inspector Phil Newitt have denied it will be disbanded.

    But sources say several Diagonal officers had already been assigned to other jobs.

    Insp Newitt said no decision on disbanding the taskforce had been made "at the moment".
