Walking the long way home down Retreat road, from the Dallington Dairy just after 5.00pm, there was this police car on the side of the road. It wasn't doing anything, just sitting there with the engine running. As I walked past someone drove along, heading away from the city. Quietly the police car pulled out, lights went on, then a bit of siren. Another driver going too fast. With the flashing police car lights visible at the Dallington end, every car that turned into Retreat road slowed to a funereal pace.
No great shakes in the fight against crime, but a welcome little bit of help to those who suffer every time a fast moving vehicle rattles their home and peace of mind. Thank you.
