Q: Helicopter patrols (Adelaide)

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by fred_kroft, Feb 5, 2006.

  1. I was talking to a guy at a chewnspew lunch time yesterday and
    he was telling me that Police listen out for ride days and patrol
    speeding riders using helicopters. He was telling me that one
    group he was with got done at Victor Harbour.

    Has anyone heard of this ?
  2. I've got to say that it would be a very costly method of tracking down speeders.
  3. About 6 months ago there was a 2 week blitz on speeding bikers throughout the hills which did involve a helicopter. Have'nt heard of anything recent. Sign of things to come.
    As for the cost, the governments cookie jar must be good with tax payers biscuits.
