  1. This crap really pissed me off. This girl will have mummy and daddy’s San Souci money thrown at the most expensive lawyer they can afford to get their princess off this terrible crime. Instead of making her suffer for her actions in prison…. she deserves jail time but will only get a slap on the wrist.
    This entitled little bitch is a product of poor parenting and for her to not walk into the police station of her own accord, shows her lack of character and integrity…..something her parents obviously never taught her.

  2. They claim speed cameras save lives, how do they do that again?
    Did a speed camera jump out like superman and grab the vehicle being driven by an imbecile?
    Motorcycles are actually the safest vehicles because very few imbeciles ride them for very long at least but they have no problem getting into a drivers seat.

  3. Tougher bail conditions are an excellent start. I do believe this cowardly act of fleeing an accident, no matter the circumstances, needs to be punished hard. A motorised vehicle is not a toy and driving is not a game. People need to show some compassion and care for their fellow human beings.

    Made a mistake? Own up to it. Accept the consequences. Accept the huge responsibility you have when driving… every single time you get out there on the road, car, bike, truck, or whatever your mode happens to be.

    Everyone wants to get to the end of their trip without being injured or killed, and without injuring or killing anyone else.

  4. Absolute idiot, how did she get her licence. That’s the problem in Australia, we worry more about the theory exam instead of practical. She obviously doesn’t have the skill to drive a motor vehicle and should never sit behind the wheel.
