Queensland Police detained a man for suspicious activity while operating a motor vehicle this weekend. “It was approximately 1800 hours on Sunday night when a patrol car spotted the unusual behaviour. The suspect in question, Ben Glajurey 30, was doing 100 in a 100km zone and not holding up traffic,” said a startled officer.
“The other constable and I were obeying Queensland law, sticking to 80 in the 100km zone, when we saw a vehicle racing off in the distance.”
Quick to react, the boys noticed the suspect was a mere 1km away from a dual-lane, so they turned on the flashing lights and punched it before he could cause a calamity.
“What would happen if he didn’t start to speed up before the dual-lane? Drivers would have nothing to be angry about and no one to stick their finger up at.”
After detaining the man overnight, QPS released Mr Glajurey on bail when they realised it had all been a big misunderstanding.
“Turns out the driver had Queensland plates on but was born in New South Wales. Stupid cockroaches,” laughed the constable.
For now, Ben said he has learned his lesson and will abide by the law and do 80 in all 100km zones, being sure to speed up when an overtaking lane appears. He also said if he ever gets a 4WD, he will make sure to always drive like an obnoxious arsehole and tailgate in accordance with Queensland road rules.
