Council Requires Every Driver To Flip The Bird At Intersections

In a bold new measure to reduce road rage and increase camaraderie among drivers, the City of Greater Bendigo has passed a law requiring all drivers to flip the bird at traffic intersections.

According to Mayor Cr Andrea Metcalf, the new rule is intended to create a sense of unity among drivers, who often feel isolated and alone behind the wheel. “We’ve all been there, stuck in traffic, feeling frustrated and alone,” the mayor said. “But now, with this new law, we’ll all be able to share in that feeling of camaraderie and solidarity as we flip each other off at every intersection.”

Under the new law, failure to flip the bird at an intersection could result in a fine of up to $500. But many drivers are embracing the new rule, some even calling it “a breath of fresh air.”

“I love it,” said Eaglehawk resident Shane Jefferies. “It’s a great way to let off steam and connect with other drivers, and I’ve already made several new friends just by flipping the bird at them.”

Bendigo city council is also considering additional measures to promote further unity among drivers, such as mandatory honking at red lights and a “thumbs up” sign at stop signs.

“We’re always looking for ways to unite our community,” the mayor said. “We believe flipping the bird at traffic intersections is just the first step.”

The new law will take effect next month, and the city council is urging all drivers to start practising their bird-flipping skills now to be prepared.”
