Good morning Stuart,
Just listening to the story about the construction forklift driver picking up the car after two days parked illegally and it then falling off and being declared a write-off. The question that springs to mind is "What's wrong with a tow truck?"
Admittedly it was blocking entry into the construction zone and the driver deserves what she got, but if the construction people had just asked the police to get it towed, they wouldn't now be likely to owe the insurance company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald (see http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/smashing-car-indeed/2007/01/18/1169095908957.html ), the construction people have been moving cars with forklifts on that street for quite some time. They also name the driver as former Miss New Zealand Rachel Huljich.
