Burnside Heights death

Another fatality. It's seriously out of control this year.

He was hit on Westwood Drive by a Holden Sedan about 12.20am, police said.
Police said the driver stopped at the scene and was helping investigators.
A Burnside Heights man was charged with culpable driving on Monday evening.

P-plater was driving twice the speed limit on the wrong side of the road.
He wants to be a cop, so that makes it ok?

I suppose that would be consistent with how fast I regularly see some of my local cops driving when they don't have lights and sirens on
Reaching new levels of softness!

The details in that article are horrific. If correct, he is a prime example of a driver who should never be allowed a licence again.
