After reading over the thread regarding the psycho scooter rider in the city (Melbourne) today I was reminded of a situation that occurred at my Dad's place recently. He has a psycho neighbour who takes photos of, and abuses him with his scooter (Dad's one of the sane scooter riders - he actually rides it, not commutes-just wanted to clarify that :wink: ) all the bloody time. His latest verbal bashing to the Old Man was about him riding his scooter from his (Dad's) front gate to the nearest driveway and onto the road. Dad lives in an old style cottage with no driveway, just a gate that fronts straight onto the footpath. He parks his scooter behind the gate. Anyway, to cut a long story short we got the Police involved (don't ask there is other shit as well - this is just a small part) and they investigated the matter and have decided that my Dad is allowed to legally ride his scooter on the footpath provided he does so from and to the nearest exit/entry point of the road. They determined this after looking through the Document 'Road Rules - Victoria' which is here: http://www.craftpress.com.au/gazette/Gazettes1999/GG1999P002.pdf This is what swayed the situation to us; PART 18 section 288: So in saying that, here is the definition of Rule 13 from the same document: *edit* - addition: Now by my reckoning, this entitles all of us Victorians to ride onto the footpath to park our motorcycles provided we do so via the nearest practicible entry/exit point. Am I right? Discuss.
