One for the crusher!

The Southland Times reports:

A Milton teenager with a habit of spinning his car’s wheels is believed to have made New Zealand legal history in the Balclutha District Court today.

Under legislation aimed at boy racers that came into effect two years ago Karn Clarrie Forrest will have his car crushed after notching up his third conviction in four years for causing a car to undergo sustained loss of traction.

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll said he believed the 18-year-old was the first person in New Zealand to be subject to the legislation which gives power to seize and destroy a vehicle for a third offence in a four year period.

Perfect timing – on the day Judith stands down as Police and Corrections Minister. It’s like a goodbye present 🙂
