Driver reports himself to police

A 60-year-old Dunedin man reported his own driving error to police after being involved in a vehicle collision in South Dunedin.

Senior Sergeant Bruce Ross said the man drove through a stop sign at the intersection of Begg and New Sts and collided with another vehicle being driven by a 42-year-old Dunedin man on Monday.

The 60-year-old was upset about the incident and called police, Snr Sgt Ross said.

Neither driver was injured, but the 60-year-old was taken to his GP for a medical assessment.

You can't be serious

To Te Jackle , Dunedin Born obviously meant he "wishes everyone was this responsible" with regards to the man turning himself in, NOT "so he wants every one to drive through stop signs",

He was commenting on the fact the man turned himself in for the mistake he made not the mistake itself or wanting others to duplicate the mistake. 


Dunedin born wishes everyone was this responsible, so he wants every one to drive through stop signs, hardly anything responsible about this at all, just another case of another driver that is endanering other road users and should not be licensed. If they had left the scene of the accident without stopping or providing details he would of broke the law, if an injury had occured by law it must be reported to Police.


Wish everyone was as responsible as this man.

Well done

Good on him for manning up.
