Lemme at 'em!
I heard a screech and a vroom and thought it was just someone having fun.
Then I realized exactly what it was: some idiot doing burnouts in a suburban street.
For the last few weeks we've been coming home to tyre tracks on the road. It's always in the same place and it happens about once a week.
What's the story? It's a suburban neighbourhood and there are kids living here. It's after midnight, but here are some things that happen in suburban streets after midnight:
- Very tired parents take their exhausted babies for long tearful walks
- Drunken youths stumble home on bicycles or on foot after Friday night parties
- Kids stay up late on Friday nights and go outside for running around
It makes no sense because
- There are skid pans
- There are race tracks
- Even if you don't want that, there are country paddocks and much more sensible bits of road than my street.
