I guess they haven't seen KWalterMitty recently.

I hope they're not implying that the photos are "before" and "after" pics of the same bike.



Speed-Cameras are easy: when one becomes too-much of a nuisance, a couple of old tyres, some petrol, and a roman-candle fix that [email protected]#ker up right.

From article's end: "Nonetheless, since the story has gone public a member of the public has called police and identified Mr Marchesani who now faces court."



I believe they're implying just that.

I thought Australia is THE place for motorcycle education, training, and tiered licensing.



I thought systems like that prevent reckless driving and riding without proper gear.

Funny how these Euro-style governments with "free" healthcare seem to want to control their citizens so much.



Don't they trust them?

Also weird how France and Germany always have such high unemployment.



There was a poster on here earlier in the week saying that we need to set up work schedules like france because they get soooo much time off and how super cool it is.



Well, when your unemployment is hiting 7 and 10% I'm sure you will love all the time off you're getting.



Also, there seems to be a lot of issues building up in France when it comes to economic and employment areas.

Interesting... looks like Texan's are banning "speed cameras". I guess we in WA should take up similar action before things get photo-crazy.

they need to do like we do, put tons of people in jail and hire massive staffs to house them, start some wars to employ a bunch of other unemployable youths, etc.



O I see Costa mesa will be installing about 10 more intersection cams, the first bunch have done such an excellent job of cutting down on crashes.
