    A 19-year-old P-plater has been charged after allegedly clocking speeds of up to 170km/h during a police pursuit in Sydney.
    The chase began after the teen's motorcycle was allegedly detected travelling at 81km/h in a 60km/h zone in Quakers Hill, in the city's north-west, about 7am (AEST) today.

    Highway patrol officers signalled for the teenager to pull over but he allegedly sped off – reaching speeds of between 160km/h and 170km/h.

    He was arrested by police after crashing the motorcycle at a roundabout.

    He was uninjured but was later charged with five offences, including driving in a dangerous manner and using an unregistered and uninsured vehicle.

    The Rouse Hill teenager will face Blacktown Local Court on May 22.

    Dumb bastard. Those roundabouts really sneak up on you don't they??
  3. Especially at 170KM's. Sounds to me like the 150kw/tonne power to weight ratio has been exceeded there!
  4. To be uninjured he had too of slowed down for the round about. But then why did he crash?????

    INdeed it mustve been a ninja roundabout. it ambushed him :D
  5. *ND voice* IDIOT!
  6. I think we all agree on that one :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  7. Ninja Roundabout!! :LOL: funny stuff
    Damn things, you must never under-estimate their sneakiness! :grin:
  8. The art of the Ninja roundabout is that one must never really know if your travelling around it until you have entered. Then all beware the oncoming traffic ~grins~
  9. Being young and fearless certainly has a habit of getting one in more sh1t than it's worth....
  10. Maybe didn't allow for the weight shift of the nuggets in his pants that escaped when he realised what he was doing!

    Wasn't Dan was it? He's supposed to be the resident crazy 250 rider up there. :LOL:
  11. yes they are vewy vewy sneaky... :LOL:

    what's the damange of getting busted on an unregistered/unisured bike???
    can't be healthy for his bank balance and his licence...
  12. I cant amagine running from the cops they will catch you they are in tintops and they can go as fast as they like and they have no pressure on them. A runner on the other hand is clocking up the charge sheet list and panic and the pressure of getting away and so on is almost a cert that a crash is coming.

    19 and just stupid and dumb! :0
  13. What licence!! You are assuming he had one and even if he did it is well and truly history now.
  14. The news article says he held a probationary licence.
  15. Yeah but did he have any points left on it? Also, doing the original speed the cops wanted him for, his P licence was well and truly gone given double demerits at the moment( :evil: ).
  16. some people have to learn the hardway..
    :grin: :LOL:
  17. At least it didnt end up bieng a permanent lesson if you know what I mean
  18. hard way would've been if it was truck instead of a roundabout.. pity :p
  19. Let's see...

    • Provisional P1 exceed speed limit by over 45km/h: $1550 + 6 points + 6 points for double demerit + immediate 6 month suspension (bear in mind that you only get 4 points on a P1 anyway)
    • Use unregistered vehicle on road/area: $450
    • Use ininsured motor vehicle: $450
    • Negligent driving: $300 + 3 points
    • Not comply P/P1 license - No "P" plates - Cycle: $175 + 2 points

    So that's $2925 before you get to the dangerous driving charge.

    And of course...
    • Seeing the look on his face as he pays all the fines: Priceless :LOL:
  20. One very expensive lesson learned... :shock:
