I was on my way up the F3 toward the turnoff to the Pacific Highway (to get to Sydney) and I encounter traffic. The slip road is about 500 meters away so I gun it up the hard shoulder when nestled away in the last layby about 40 meters from the slip road, and parked tight against the wall is a cop car. I see a copper nearly trip over himself to flag me down so I pull in and I am dealing with a cop who may have been molested by a CT110 at some stage because he was having brain spasms at having stopped a bike and couldn't bark the orders quick enough and was even interrupting himself. Anyway, I remove the lid, listen to why I was pulled over and said 'fair enough, no problem'. He then writes up the ticket and gives it to me, $179 fine and 2 points on the license. I was a bit surprised at the severity, but there you go. I also had wankers shouting and jeering as they drive by which the cops didn't pay any notice to. Doing the Lord's work I suppose. He then he proceeds to tell me that its ok for me to lane split with blinkers on, and I should do that. I asked him if he was sure about that, he said yes and then started to check my bike over for rego and anything else he could find wrong, which he didn't so I was on my way. I couldn't believe what he said about the lane splitting, but the next cop will say something different I'm sure. I have never seen cops there ever, and I am wondering if someone can dob bikes in and request a car be put there, kind of like someone dobbing a neighbour in to the Water Nazi's. Could they have been there to catch motorcyclists at the request of some members of the public? Do they do requests?
