On the move, and off the road, a woman is a dangerous driver, and when you think you’re safe, it’s not always the case.
The song Blackfoot Highway is about a young girl who dies while playing on a bridge.
The girl is being held captive by the Blackfoot highway patrol.
In this clip, you can hear the woman speaking through her cell phone, and as she’s speaking to her daughter, she tells her that she’s a “traffic-sniffing dog”.
“If I see anything, I’m going to let you know,” the woman says.
“Just keep your eye on me, I’ll be back.”
And then she’s gone.
“She was in a hurry, she didn’t care about what she was doing, she was just driving,” Blackfoot Patrol member James White told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“So she was driving really fast, I don’t know if she was going too fast.
But she was coming up behind me, and I said ‘well, what’s your name?’ and she said ‘Blackfoot Highway Patrol’.”
The police officer, who didn’t want to be named, has now lost both of his legs and is in intensive care.
“I’ve lost two legs.
My wife has lost a leg too,” he said.”
It’s been devastating.
My dad is a huge supporter of the Blackfeet.
I’ve got a whole new family, my partner has got a new partner.”
The woman was not wearing a seatbelt.
“The last thing she wanted was to be in that car with that child, and she just lost control,” the officer said.
The Blackfoot patrol has been working on the Black Foot Highway for more than a decade.
“We’ve seen people come through and try to drive around with children and it’s quite scary,” Sergeant White said.
The Black Foot Patrol’s goal is to keep people safe on the highway.
“People are going to get in the car with the kids and get a little too close,” Sergeant Brown said.
“If we see that we’ll be on the road in a few minutes, we’re here to assist them, we’ll help them with the paperwork and the registration, and if they have a ticket, we can get them to a police station.”
The Black foot Highway is one of several road closures around the state and the surrounding regions.
This year’s Blackfoot road closure was in October.
But the road was open for recreational vehicles in November and December.
“What we’re really hoping for is people to be aware of the signs and the warnings that we have around the road,” Sergeant Whitfield said.
But not everyone has been so lucky.
A woman was killed in an accident while on her way to work in late January.
Another woman died after being hit by a car while on their way to a friend’s house in March.
And last month, a family from New South Wales was hit by another vehicle while walking along a highway.
There’s no official count of how many road accidents occur on the Highway.
