Hi all, Im hoping some one can help me, I was Rideing on the South Eastern Freeway Away from the City in the Right Lane, about 1k from the Warrigal Rd Exit with No Emergency stopping Lane, this is Due to Road works. The Guy in front of me put on his Brakes as did i. During this I hit a piece of round steel ( 4 to 5 X 1' ) in the indentation where the Road works have riped a grove in the road to remove the old White line. When i hit the Above Object under Brakes, the Front wheel bounced up on to his object Locked and the bike went out from under me. I am now faced with a) the Costs to fix my bike, b) The Costs to Replace my riding gear. Although some Riders with many Years of experience may have avoided this, I could not and i don't think many to many people could have. Who is responsible to Make shore the Roads Are safe, and clear of debris whilst Road works are on, and what is the Legality of NO Emergency lane? What can i do to recover my costs, as i don't have Comprehensive insurance? The Police have Said Stiff. Please Help.... PS i have suffered minimal injuries, just a few minor Scrapes thanks to Correct riding Gear.
