Cop blasts P-plater over 'irresponsible' act

A P-plater has left NSW Police furious over a “selfish and irresponsible” act on the road. 

The driver, a 20-year-old man behind the wheel of an Audi, was pulled over in Moorebank, in Sydney’s southwest, on Saturday about 12.40am.

It’s alleged he was travelling 133km/h in a 70km/h zone and police determined the Audi was also unregistered.

He was issued infringements for exceeding the speed limit over 45km/h, and for driving an unregistered vehicle.

Police also suspended his licence for six months and took the car’s registration plates.

Liverpool Highway Patrol sector supervisor Inspector Dale Abbott urged drivers to follow the speed limit.

“I can’t believe that there are still drivers who feel that they can disobey the speed limits and put everyone at risk by their selfish and irresponsible actions," Inspector Abbott said in a statement.

“All drivers, especially young drivers, need to understand that you can’t exceed the speed limit.”

Driver slammed for ‘stupid’ act on safety ramp

Another NSW driver has been widely criticised for stopping on a safety ramp south of Sydney.

Police found a white Mitsubishi Mirage parked on a safety ramp at the bottom of Mount Ousley Road near Wollongong on April 10.

“Police attempted to locate the driver as they were concerned for their welfare, but they weren't with their vehicle,” police said.

“A canvass of the area located the driver in the nearby bushland walking their dog, and that they had deliberately parked their vehicle in the middle of the safety ramp to do so.

“The driver said they did not see any signs indicating that they could not park there. The driver was directed to immediately move the vehicle, and will be issued with an infringement notice.”
