I was riding to work on Thursday, it was pissing down with rain. If you're in Sydney, you'd know the morning. Horrible. I was heading down a back street as its a way of avoiding a right turn at some lights as I can do a right down a one way, left down another one way, then right down a 2 way back street to a normal street. It's the back streets of redfern; Pitt St, right down East St, left up Douglas, right down Turner with a final left up Chalmers which gives me a straight run up Elizabeth. Yeah, its a bit of a fiddle, it's probably not that optimal, but its been a change I added to my route and I'm liking it. Anyway, Turner is a bit odd; from the Chalmers end of Turner, it's two way. From the Pitt St end of Turner, it's no entry, one way. Hence me having to go down East and Douglas. So there I am, taking my little "shortcut", just about to reach the end of Douglas to turn right, when a cop car flies out from the left - heading the wrong way down the one way street - but because I looked to the left I was able to brake in time to avoid an accident, but being right at the start of a turn the bike does a dive for the ground so I have to wrestle her a bit to stay upright. I stop and flip up the visor, swearing under my breath. Cop: Why don't you watch the road mate. Me: I'm watching the road mate. Cop: Hey, stop your engine there. Me: Sorry? Cop: Stop your engine. Me: You're going the wrong way down a one way street. I didn't really expect you to be coming from that street, mate. I was looking. Other cop in passenger seat: HA HA HA HA HA Cop: Okay. *embarrassed laugh* and then he drives off. But it doesn't end there - oh no! No. Because, I'm following him out of the alley, and as we approach a set of traffic lights, he slows down, as slow as walking pace in front of me, until the lights turn amber, at which point he continues across the intersection and drives off, leaving me fuming at the lights. The worst thing is the video footage is all blurry from the water, so you can't make out anything. You just can't make this shit up.
