I got pulled the other day on way back from getting the WIVI test done on the bike. The bike was not regoâ€™d yet so no plate but I was told this was ok before as long as I had my 3rd party insurance in place and carried my papers on me. Any how I was on my way home along the gateway motorway, no rego plate, lane splitting and using the hard shoulder as well and I may have even excided the speed limit a tad. So I was asking for it I suppose. So I decided to slow down and just plod along with the traffic. Then there was this BMW in my mirrors with â€œblues nâ€™ tunesâ€ on. So I pull over, the copper had about 5 attempts to get out clearly what he was trying to say and I still donâ€™t know what he was saying. He then aggressively asked me about the laws of the road and how they apply to bikes? I figured this was really his forte and tried to explain to him I had been living overseas for about 10 years and now that I was back I was waiting for Queensland Transport to have the rule book back in print. So this sent him into lecture mode about road safety, the dangers on lane splitting ectâ€¦.. Now while this was happening I could not help notice here is this bloke, riding a motorbike on the motorway, setting an example to us on road safety and he was not wearing any kind of protective jacket, no gloves. Just a pair of hiking looking boots, pair of chino dacks, a short sleeve shirt and a helmet. I didnâ€™t really see this as ideal biking gear. Or is it me? Any how I had just forgotten just how aggressive, rude and arrogant the Aussie coppers are, I mean just some common courtesy, I removed my helmet but he kept his on, I just found him to be rude and did a lot to push me against the police and any one who has met me will tell you Iâ€™m not the kind of person to be rude or antagonistic to people. I didnâ€™t mind getting the $105 fine, I deserved it(Wahoo no points by the looks of it) but would have expected to be given a warning instead. No wonder there is so many accidents on the roads here. Every one is making sure they are not breaking any laws just in case they get done for it, because there is no room for the police to use there discretionâ€¦â€¦â€¦..or is that it? Are the police not trusted to use any kind of discretion? Arr, thatâ€™s better. I just had to get that off my chest.
