I disagree with you there.
I took out an AVO on our next door neighbour, who was angry that the Council, who made us use a driveway going past his house and refused to give us a permit to have a road elsewhere but; instead of our neighbour fighting the Council, he attempted twice to run me off the road in our car. I complained to the Police who said take out an AVO at the Bega Court. We’ll be able to stop him then.
We went to court and found he had taken an AVO out against me. The Court allowed this and then made rules which neither of us we allowed to break supposedly for 12 months or else. Within two weeks, he had broken all of them and tried to run me over while walking my dog with a twenty ton crane. I went back to the Police who said off the record, I should get someone to give him a hiding or worse. He had form and was well known to them. Great. We sold up and moved. By that time we were nervous wrecks because every night until we moved, we would get phone calls every hour on the hour. As I said only those who are willing to obey the law and do the right thing. People like this make their own rules.
AVO’s and the Police in this case, useless as t1ts on a bull.
