Quote of the Day – Judith Collins

The media are beating up that no cars have yet been crushed by the government. They talk like this is a bad thing.

No cars have been crushed under a controversial two-year-old a law promising a crackdown on boy racers.

Police Minister Judith Collins was dubbed ‘Crusher Collins’ when the Vehicle Confiscation and Seizure Bill was passed in October 2009.

It gave courts the power to send cars owned by people who committed three serious vehicle offences in four years to the crusher.

Estimates quoted by Ms Collins during a parliamentary debate on the law said there would be 10 cars crushed every year.

She told Radio New Zealand this morning no cars had yet been crushed – though 17 offenders were on their second ‘strike’.

Judith Collins put’s it in perspective with her quote of the day:

“If one of them wants to pop their hand up and get the stupid sticker and get their car crushed, we’ll be happy to oblige.”

Clearly the law is working. The idiot classes don’t want to have their cars crushed and so are behaving better. SOunds like a policy success to me.
