Public Service Announcement If your vehicle breaks down on the M1, immediately call 13 19 40 for a 'free tow to safety'. My bike died on the ride up yesterday, but I had a state-wide work event all day yesterday until after shops closed. Went back to pick up the bike this morning and it was gone. Rang around and it had been towed... and that'll be $385 to release it (plus $5.50 for paying by credit card). So now you know. (apparently they did try to ring me, but my phone was flat... lots of things all together went wrong, but it all means I'm almost 400 bucks in the hole before I even start on getting it fixed) I'm not sure on the legal status of Main Roads contracting a towing company to tow my bike without my consent, and charge me for the privilege, but I'm sure they've covered themselves.
