Unsafe Road Behaviour


ACT Policing is seeking witnesses and dash-cam footage of an incident of unsafe road behaviour on Paddy’s River Road in Tidbinbilla.

About Monday, 1 January, 2023, police observed two men sitting on the front and rear doors of a black Toyota Yaris with their torsos out of the vehicle, filming on mobile phones.

Police pulled the vehicle over and spoke to the driver, who was allegedly an unaccompanied learner driver and was not displaying his L plates.

Officers conducted a roadside drug test on the driver which returned a positive result for cannabis. The man was transported to Tuggeranong Police Station and will be subject to further drug testing.

It is believed the vehicle travelled from Uriarra Village via Brindabella Road, through the Cotter campground area and onto Paddy’s River Road.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this unsafe behaviour or who may have dash-cam footage of the vehicle and its occupants around the time of the incident.

Police would particularly like to speak to the rider of a red sports bike that was behind the vehicle at the time police observed the incident. Police would like to stress that the motorcyclist is a witness to the incident and not involved in the dangerous driving behaviour.

Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.  Please quote 7635376. Information can be provided anonymously.
