Citizen journalists turning into citizen cops

August 19, 2008

Great article in The AustralianIT about how the Australian Victorian government is considering allowing citizens to submit photographic evidence of street crimes from mobile devices. Specifically they are interested in people using mobile devices to record the stupid antics of car “hoons” that use public streets as personal drag strips or performing dangerous stunts that endanger the lives of other people.

Great idea, but why isn’t this for all driving related incidents like those annoying people that change lanes with indicating or those that throw lit cigarettes from their cars or those people with hats driving slow in the fast lane!?!?!  🙂
