Because talking back to cops is ALWAYS a good idea. :crazy:


So long as you know when to stop

Im not denying the fact he was in the wrong , nor the fact he got fined , Just the way they went about it.
the amount of times i see someone do something illegal with cops round and they get a warning or just left is what piss's me off

Any thing were there is one of there toss pot bus drivers is a hazzard! speeding , cutting lanes , no indicators . Ive complain about them heaps to the council and got no action !


People say exactly the same thing about cyclists....
I personally agree some of the bus driving is appalling - but they DO get pulled up on it.

It's tough, and a warning would have been nice - could have been the council rather than Police doing that. Must hurt more if you are on the wrong side of the $150

I used to ride through there and always wondered if it was legal and if I might get pinged one day.

A bit like how I have my bike rack obscuring the number plate on my car. I know it is illegal. I know that law is generally not enforced but that I risk being fined.

Rather than faffing a solution, I choose to take that risk until either I get stopped or there is an awareness campaign that the blind eye is no longer being turned (as happened a few years ago with boaties and their outboard motors that now all have red flags).

I heard a bus driver a few months back whinging to another driver he had been stopped twice by the police in a week. Admittedly he could have been lying but i don't see why.

Quite possibly.
Funnily enough, he used the rapists/ murderers argument too.
