Just saw an add for the above TV news,persuit on The Old Rd.Looks like its a big one.
Where's the Old Rd.. and who was being pursued..
Must be a long road if its going to be on tomorrows "news".
What sort of pursuit what is it about? DETAILS
Is it a very slow pursuit?
The Old Pacific Highway, home to Road Warriors, Pie In The Sky and many, many corners.
Its a 30sec add for Mondays news.Bike gets passed by cop,cop pulls U turn,persuit tops 140,the hook is the bike rider gets off.Should be interesting.
Ahh good old Channel 9. "We have breaking news.....but we're holding it till Monday night when the ratings are better".
Thats only 30 over ? News ??
Nah, the limit on the Old Road is a mix of 60-80.
But probably should be 100 ?
You've got that right.
Wasn't it 100 once?
I think you're right. Maybe three years ago.
So,it wasnt really dangerous.
The Old road is dangerous to ride, but that's more to do with the gravel in some corners and riders who have an ambition/skill mismatch. Speed is rarely the primary cause for the accidents (preaching to the converted, I know).
Until they built the F3
