Shocking moment driver rams police car’s head into dash cam

A shocking sight has been released as a vehicle on the wrong side of the road crashes into a police car, as police crack down on unsafe drivers.

Dashcam footage from last month shows the vehicle driving up a curb to veer onto the wrong side of the road and into the path of the police cruiser, before driving straight into the vehicle.

Another video from June 14 shows a car in a parking lot ramming into a police vehicle, which sat in front of it in an effort to prevent its exit.

As an officer opens his door, the driver accelerates and rams the vehicle to create space to exit, damaging another car in the process.

It comes as ACT Police have launched a new task force to tackle a rise in motor vehicle theft and dangerous driving in the territory.

As of August 1, Operation Toric investigators have arrested 18 offenders and laid more than 70 charges, including driving for police, failing to stop for police, aggravated dangerous driving and driving under the influence of Drugs.

Police hope the new task force will tackle the significant diversion of police resources when responding to dangerous driving incidents.

ACT Chief Constable Neil Gaughan has issued a stern warning to dangerous drivers.

“Your behavior will not be tolerated,” he said.

“The dedicated officers of Operation Toric will dedicate every hour of their work to bringing all dangerous driving offenders to justice.

“The task force will be relentless in its mission – to ensure that those who believe themselves to be above the law are arrested and brought to justice for their actions.”
