Thats better Bill Tilley manditory minimum jail do not pass go do not collect $200 neat and tidy save court time straight from the scene put them in a 24 hour drop box

Would be better if ramming anyone attracted the same sentence. It's either right or wrong.

Can we make car theft the same Penalty ?

Good job Bill - there are too many fools out there that have no respect for Police or any authority figure - this law is well and truly needed & will be appreciated by many - especially the members of Vic Pol

And make them pay for the repairs as well.

The Victorian Population Policy Taskforce interim report has now been released calling for better roads, faster trains and well-planned opportunities to see people shift out of Melbourne and into regional Victoria. We had more than 40 people at the forum in Wodonga which demonstarted the strength of the region and the belief that we are well placed to capitalise on this policy development.

The state opposition says Melbourne is buckling under the weight of unsustainable population growth, with the city expected to top eight millions residents by 2051.

Nearly 6 million in Melbourne already. That's a quarter of our whole population. Shifting people will not change the fact it is unsustainable to keep on with importing 200,000 per year and we must return to the long term immigration intake of 70,000 per year. Sustainable Australia is the only party to have any foresight on our population.

Criminals who ram police cars face up to 10 years jail under new laws to be introduced into Victorian Parliament next week.

Fat chance of getting this bill passed. Andrews and his band of fools are the ones that have made it the norm for crims and hoons to run from Police because they know the Police are 'not allowed' to chase them. Even better if they can disable the Police cars by ramming them then fleeing. Especially if you can injure or kill the Police, because no Labor appointed Judge or Magistrate will hand out proper punishment.

They have it backwards again it should be minimum 10 years jail nsw introduced skys law when you run from police its a minimum jail term

Great but will the Judges enforce it.? Or just give them the usual slap with a feather.

Fantastic achievement with the opening of Wodonga's new Woolworths this morning.

Goodbye Safeway! An end of an era...
The last remaining Safeway supermarket in Australia closed its registers for the final time on Tuesday at 6pm.

Safeway Wodonga Plaza closed as the new Woolworths store in High Street opens Wednesday at 9am.

Store manger Liza Hill said it has been an emotional day for staff as some have been here since the store opened 29 years ago, in February 1988.

"Some of our staff member have been here since day dot," she said.

"We had an orientation of the new store last Saturday and we are very excited to start."

"All the team members will be relocated to the new store, so the customers will still see their faces."

Most of the eight aisles had been stripped bare of stock. Ms Hill said the left overs will be donated or redistributed after closing.

"After 6pm tonight, a pack up crew will come in and relocate the stock to other stores. The fresh produce will be donated to a charity that we have nominated."

All Woolworth Limited stores in Victoria traded under the name Safeway until 2008 when the company decided to re-brand the stores to match the other states.

The Wodonga supermarket was kept as "Safeway" due to future plans to update and relocate the store where it would be re-branded as Woolworths.

Do you have a memory of Safeway Wodonga? Comment below.

Tune into Breakfast with Joseph Thomsen tomorrow to hear more.

I have a very clear memory of the old Safeway store in High Street, being judged as the MOST EXPENSIVE Supermarket in Victoria. Not the staff fault of course. Happened about 2004.

Last year thousands of CFA volunteers went to Parliament to demand that Daniel Andrews respect them. I stood up with them, and I am still standing with them today.

We won't let Labor destroy our CFA.
