    Bogans in 4WDs at Trig Point (Lysterfield)

    Last week we saw them up there again, a police helicopter came, the circled and landed but did absolutely nothing to actually apprehend these morons. Instead they actually made it more dangerous for park users because all these Utes hauled ass out of there down the walking track. I hope this...
