Crime in 'da hood

The resident of this building  a few doors from us who recorded this said that before this event happened, a police car came through with lights and sirens. Can we assume this stolen car dodged off St Kilda Road into the Metro Tunnel works area to avoid police in pursuit?

It took me a while to work the video out so to briefly tell you what is happening, a black SUV appears on the left in the Metro Tunnel works area. It pauses on the far right, perhaps faced by a barrier it couldn't break through, reverses and pauses again before crashing through the fence, taking some fencing with it, and as the traffic stops and banks up, I guess the fencing fell off on the road and people leave their cars to move the obstruction.

  1. It seems there is a video camera everywhere. Big brother, big sister, nosy neighbour is watching. And recording...

    1. EC, yet people commit crimes in front of cameras and for some reason don't think they will be caught.

  2. Things goin' on in our 'hood' as well. Police chopper flying over this part of the ranges and nearby suburbs all morning.
    They ocassionally 'chase' road runners' down Mt Dandenong road but this is just circling round and round. Maybe we'll find out on the news this evening!

    1. They usually go round and round when a suspect being chased has entered a residential area and the chopper keeps in touch with police by radio to direct them to the car being chased.

    2. Cathy, while we see hovering helicopters, I don't think we've ever been able to connect them to something in the news.

    3. River, that is what I think too.

  3. I used to be very confident behind the wheel of the car, but things have changed. Other drivers seem more careless and I seem more anxious.

    1. Hels, it comes with age, the loss of confidence in your own driving skills and perhaps it is not a bad thing.

    1. Merle, I do admire anyone who doesn't rely on an individual tin box to get around in.

  5. Criminals drive me crazy... why can't these people live like the rest of us. It makes life so unpleasant.

  6. I noticed the black SUV politely waited for the two people on pushbikes to be clear before they drove through the fence.

    1. Haha River, I noticed that too. Considerate and safe driving car thieves?

  7. Good thing it wasn't at a hugely busy time Andrew, could have caused quite a serious disruption to traffic flow!

    1. Grace, by the light, I think late evening but before dark. Yes, it could have been worse.

  8. So many want what is not theirs...and when they take it, they wreck it! Too many wastes of space and oxygen! Worthless leeches on other.

    I guess that explains my feelings about them! :)

    1. Lee, no argument from me. They are getting locked up all the time, but it doesn't seem to deter them.

  9. The fence they took with them wouldn't do the vehicle any good. Idiots.

    1. Margaret, they wouldn't care as the car was probably stolen and would later be dumped.

    1. Strayer, I didn't even realise there was music. You are right. It works well.
