I’m sure the guy tries, but seriously, someone in ACT Policing’s media unit should check his press releases before they go out, because almost without fail he manages to say something stupid each time.
Today’s effort has suddenly made it legal for car passengers over the age of 16 years to not wear a seatbelt.
“It is an offence to drive while not wearing your seatbelt or to permit passengers under the age of 16 to travel in your car without seatbelts ” said Supt Colbran.
I wonder, if the police pulled you over for having an unrestrained passenger and you waved that press release at them, would they let you off with a warning?
