Recently I was on a red at the Eliot St lights, and many cars were getting swamped with the Squeegee Bandits dodging in and out.

I was appalled to see them then deciding they had had enough for the day, scooping up the coins, not bothering to pull up their pants and leaving all their bottles and rubbish behind on the footpath.

What does it take for the council to outlaw these drop kicks from our intersections - an injury or death?

It'll come sooner or later.

Do you have faith in police solving burglaries?

Yes - there's no faulting their commitment.

Mostly, but they are under-resourced.

Sort of - depends on when and where.

Not really - clearly a low priority for them.

Absolutely not.

Not sure - luckily I've never been burgled.
