FYI – This matter was reported to Police with accompanying witness details and photos (of car, skid marks etc).
The vehicle involved was confirmed to be a Hire Car.
I have been advised by a senior officer from the Traffic Enforcement Group of WA Police that the driver was identified, was interviewed in the Eastern States and claimed he had accidentally skidded when applying the handbrake in a hire car he was unfamiliar with.
Due to a lack of sufficient evidence to contradict his claim there is an “unlikely” chance of conviction and there will not be any prosecution for an offence.
So, the matter has now been closed.
