A mate of mine is a stuntrider, a bloody good one actually who lost his licence some months ago after an accumulation of points. Ever since, he's been getting his stuntbikes taken to various industrial parks around Melbourne to practice in, using a mate with a van to get them around. There's been no problems with this at all, until last weekend. He was doing low-speed work, monos etc at walking pace in a carpark attached to a warehouse. The area is largely obscured from the road by some high hedges. While sitting on the bike, with it switched off and his second bike nearby, a cop drove into the carpark in an unmarked car. He got out of the car and said that as he was able to drive into the carpark it was classed as a public road, so he booked him for the following.... Driving Unlicenced Driving an Unregistered Vehicle Not displaying P plates Driving an Unroadworthy Vehicle And a bunch of others. The highlight of which was the copper questioning him as to why his stuntbike didn't have a horn. Over $2000 of fines in total, and many moons added onto my mates already suspended licence. The cop also threw in some free insults, and attitude, the highlight of which was "I know what you guys are like - bet you don't have a job" and all that crap. But hey, my mate's got a good full time job within the industry, so whatever. So, what's the best way for him to handle this? Was he really riding on a public road? Can you be done for riding without your P's in his situation? My friend was under the assumption as he was in a private carpark it was private property. But we all know what they say about assumptions... Anyway, where to from here?
