Timmy Rakei

Nov 19, 2021 | News, Parliament

For my members statement today I would like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of Timmy Rakei from Bayswater, who was sadly killed during a hit-and-run while working as a traffic controller only last week.

Timmy has been described by those who knew him as generous, kind hearted, a loving father and a giving friend. He was a young man with a wife and four children, and their lives have been changed now forever.

This should never have happened.

Such a tragedy is an important reminder to all Victorians of the consequences of speeding. Speed limits are there for a reason. When they are ignored you put the lives of others at risk.

Every worker deserves to go to work and come home safely.

That is their right.

Please, we all have a responsibility to each other when we drive on Victorian roads.


Timmy Rakei
