Police stopping cyclists off ivory lane

Postby vaeske » Thu Aug 22, 2013 8:21 am

Just be aware, there is a stop sign on Ivory Street city inbound coming onto boundary street. there is one police officer in a undercover if you turn right onto boundary, not sure if there are any if you go left.

It's a $110 dollar fine with no demerit points.

Really gotta wonder about such use of Police resources.

I know its a digression, but i drove a car up the M1 from Tweed Heads to Wacol the other morning.
In 2 and a bit hours i saw just one police car on the highway.
I did see several vehicles that were at various times, speeding, tailgating, veering from lane to lane - all the usual cr*p that you see anytime you drive.

Somewhere around Loganlea on an arterial road (not the M1) there were several police with their cars parked, conducting RBTesting at 10am.
Really, what are they going to acheive doing this at 10 am ?

Surely they would have been better off patrolling motorways and arterials at 10am thinks me.
