First idiot racer’s car to be crushed

A Milton idiot will be the first to lose his car crushed under new legislation:

Eighteen-year-old Karn Clarrie Forrest, of Milton, appeared before Judge Stephen O’Driscoll in the Balclutha District Court, sitting in Gore, today on two driving charges.   

Forrest was charged with driving while disqualified and driving a vehicle with a sustained loss of traction on State Highway 1 north of Milton on September 29 . . .

Prosecutor Sergeant Penny Stratford noted as it was Forrest’s  third conviction for driving with a sustained loss of traction and under section 129A of the Sentencing Act – which  was amended two years ago – his car could be confiscated and  destroyed.   

The Land Transport (Enforcement Powers) Amendment Act and the  Sentencing (Vehicle Confiscation) Amendment Act – legislation specifically targeting street racers – came into force in  December 2009. . .

 Judith Collins got the nickname Crusher as the architect of this legislation and said she would look forward to pushing the button for the first crushing.

However, she has been promoted in the new Cabinet, so that pleasure might go to her successor, Anne Tolley.

    Nothing changes the snooty rich oppress the poor

    Bad peasant boy, he spun his wheels – how disgraceful

    In any case our “boy racers” are amateurs compared with these dzhigits who are the masters of the art

    So what does an eighteen year old male from Milton do fun now a “sustained loss of traction” is a most heinous offense.

    Does the local Anglican Parish have a nice sewing circle he could join perhaps.

    Or quilt making might be the thing to keep him occupied

    He was a disqualified driver at the time of this latest offence.. he was doing donuts at an intersection.

    What can he do now? Well, he can do his 150 hours of community work, take up a sport and either walk or run to practice, and/or restart the education he stopped at about age 10.

    But most likely he’ll steal a car, get drunk and kill someone on the road.

    Were you never young JC, full of joie de vivre and needing to let some steam out?

    Young guys full of beans are a pain in the backside, but why everybody want to tame them, make them as docile as sheep?

    It’s good to have a bit of fire in your belly when you are young – it dies down soon enough which is sad in a way

    “Were you never young JC, full of joie de vivre and needing to let some steam out?”

    I certain rode motorbikes at speed, and then cars, but the thought of using a vehicle for racing or doing stupid things in town was unimaginable to me.

    Back in the 60 and 70s I seemed to use a vehicle to get to places to play sport, go to the pictures or parties.. not use the vehicle that I paid good money for to endanger it and me or run foul of the law.

    Would someone from those who think this retard is being hard done by, tell us how, when he is doing his burnout, can keep control of his vehicle so as not to endanger others, just wondering.

    GD,

    There are many studies that show a relationship between driving offenses and criminal convictions.. its as high as 79% for driving while disqualified (like this chap) and 50% more generally. Thats how the cops pick up youth who steal cars so quickly.. if they see a car being driven dangerously by a younger person they know they have about a 50% chance of stopping a criminal offender.

    Generally the more serious the road offense, the more serious the criminal activity.

    The thing about driving offenses now and a couple of generations back is we were driving low powered cars, the median age of NZ society was 22 and losing a boy to a road accident wasn’t such a big deal to the average family of 3-6 kids. Today there’s twice as many cars on the road, they are nearly all high powered, society median age is 37 and there’s only one boy per family.. of course its a much bigger deal now.

    You can make the reverse comparison with premarital sex and pregnancy.. back then it was ruination for the girl, a huge impact on the family and untreated syphilis meant the chance the girl, her child and future partners could suffer tragic health outcomes. Now, the risks to the girl and family are minimal with contraception, abortion and effective treatment of venereal disease, so society isn’t anything like as concerned about it.

    Bollocks JC – in the 1960s with half the population we have now a less than half the cars we have n the road now the road toll was nearly twice what it is today.

    Now, the risks to the girl and family are minimal with contraception, abortion and effective treatment of venereal disease, so society isn’t anything like as concerned about it.

    Those of us who have sons and daughters are highly concerned about it.

    We live in a degraded and debased culture that is killing itself off

    “Bollocks JC – in the 1960s with half the population we have now a less than half the cars we have n the road now the road toll was nearly twice what it is today.”

    Agreed, but we didn’t care enough to change it for reasons I have outlined. It wasn’t till society aged and Europeans were reduced to below replacement birth rates that we took an interest in protecting our young on the road and in work.

    “Those of us who have sons and daughters are highly concerned about it.

    We live in a degraded and debased culture that is killing itself off”

    Again agreed. But inter generational moral priorities have changed as I have indicated. Driver deaths are now more important because there are fewer kids and sex morality is less important because there are fewer consequences.. morality is always determined by practicalities and consequences.. even with Catholics and Evangelicals.
