“There have been incidents lately where purses and bags have disappeared. Investigations indicate that the bags are not being beamed up onto the nearest star ship, nor are they falling through any hole in the space time continuum, they are being stolen by opportunistic crooks who are targeting people while they are distracted. If you leave your bag or purse in the trolley while you are pondering the price of vegemite or the color of the turnips, you may leave yourself open to a stealing. Please keep your eye on your property, make sure your valuables are secure”
That was written more than three years ago. I have written about securing your property since 2015 on many occasions. I now ask myself “Why is it still happening?” I have concluded that there are possibly some people that don’t read On The Beat (OTB).
I need all avid readers of OTB to spread the word. Tell all your friends and relatives that they are responsible for the security of their property. Lock it or lose it, as they say. Think crime prevention and don’t give any crook the opportunity to ply their trade.
Road rage seems to be a pretty big topic lately. We have all seen it going on and most of us have been in some sort of road rage incident at some time or another.
Road rage does not have to be full on assaults. Wikipedia states the following: “Road rage is aggressive or angry behaviour exhibited by a driver of a road vehicle, which includes rude gestures, verbal insults, physical threats or dangerous driving methods targeted toward another driver or a pedestrian in an effort to intimidate or release frustration”.
Now we all know what it is, let’s all chillax whilst we are driving around. Leave plenty of time to get to your destination and remember, when you are sitting in the traffic and it’s not moving, everyone is in the same situation.
You are not alone. Treat other drivers the way you would want them to treat your wife, daughter or other member of the family.
That’s all the excitement for this week.
