The Australian police are blaming poor driving by teenagers on videogames. Daily Telegraph quotes New South Wales police acting superintendent Dave Evans as saying:

"Video games can have a negative impact on young drivers because it increases their complacency and their indulgence in risk-taking behaviour. In games you race, you crash and it is a matter of pressing the buttons and off you go again. In real life it doesn't work that way, you can be killed."

This is the dumbest thing I've read all month. I suppose Gears of War 2 will help me become an expert marksman and combatant. Guitar Hero: World Tour will obviously help me shred like Malmsteen. On the downside, my poor Crackdown performance has clearly impacted my accuracy when it come to jumping from building to building. I'm going to call my Aussie friends to tease them about having dolts like Dave Evans enforcing their country's safety. Idiot.
