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.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
