Van knocks over most of parked Bikes are down at St Mary Rd, Sydney

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by norm79, Dec 19, 2011.

  1. I just came across that place. It seems like a Van has lost control and knocked down most of the bikes parking at St Mary road (north side), next to St Mary Cathedral. The polices were there and the tow trucks were loading the damaged bikes. If you belong to one of those bikes, suggest heading there and check it out now.

    Notice the bikes on the left of the picture fell the other way...looks like it might have actually gone through the middle of the line of bikes, not just clipped the end of it

    I can see the headline now: "Motorcycles fail to avoid van driver."

    Damn I am cynical.

  18. Seriously how incompetent can someone be?

    Who thinks he'll have his license suspended and charged for dangerous driving? not me! He'll probably get some bs fine like fail to give way.

    Reckon he saw all those bikes and couldn't help himself. White van man DNA took over. He may have scratched his mirror. Bike owners will be billed for a replacement.
