According to the Country Alliance Party's media release, http://www.countryalliance.org/media/20110811-andrew-yarraranges.pdf the Yarra ranges council has taken a dad to court because he let his kids ride mini bikes on his own property. Now this could be just due to noise complaints or something else particularly colloquial and petty, I don't know - I couldn't find anything more about it, BUT the scuttle butt is that this is a veiled attempt to apply a "carbon tax" to get off road riders out of the area. It's unsubstantiated, so keep your ears peeled for information. I would imagine that the Labor party would have kiniptions if the carbon tax angle came to be true. Can you imagine the field day Libs would have if this rumour was substantiated?!
