High speed motorbike offences, Sunshine Coast
myPolice on Mar 26, 2021 @ 12:46pm
Police have fined a man over $17,000 after seizing helmet cam vision which allegedly showed him performing high risk stunts on a motorbike, including wheel stands at more than 200 kilometres per hour.

Officers from the Sunshine Coast Road Policing Unit intercepted the 27-year-old on a BMW motorcycle at Maroochydore on March 23 after he was allegedly observed travelling at high speed in wet conditions.

The man’s helmet camera was seized, and a subsequent review of the footage showed the man driving dangerously through traffic on multiple occasions, in one instance allegedly performing a wheel stand at 109 kilometres per hour in a 60 zone from a red light.

He also allegedly conducted a wheel stand at 201 kilometres per hour while passing cars in a 100 zone on the Sunshine Motorway.

A search warrant was executed on a property at Pacific Paradise on March 24 where the motorbike was seized. Officers also located a grow room with hydro setup and eight mature cannabis plants.

After further review of the vision police identified a total of 43 dangerous driving and riding offences.

A 27-year-old Pacific Paradise man was today charged with 10 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and one count each of produce dangerous drugs, possess dangerous drugs, possess utensils and possess things. He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on May 10.

He was also issued with Traffic Infringement Notices:

17 for speed; three of which were for exceeding the speed limit by more than 40kms per hour
10 for fail to have proper control
2 for unlawful lane filter
1 cross single line
1 fail to stop at red light
1 stop on footpath
1 disobey direction arrow on the roadway
The fines total $17,512.

Inspector Shane Panaho said the behaviour was extremely reckless and disappointing in light of the high number of motorcyclists who have lost their lives on Queensland roads this year.

“There’s already twenty-one families whose loved ones never came home this year after being involved in traffic crashes,” he said.

“Rider safety is everyone’s responsibility, but it starts with you as a rider.

“Your behaviour on the road has direct consequences on your life and those around you.”

Investigations are continuing into the possibility of further offences being identified.

While there can be absolutely no doubt that this person is a bad example of humanity, it was this part that caught my attention -

Obviously a total frog wit. Yeah, the first thing they grab is your camera. Either wipe it each day or dont have one.

Camera evidence both for prosecutions and accidents is more and more in use these days. Can work for you or against you.

Police in the U.K. also now reserve the right to prosecute on private citizens submitted camera footage, so even if you don’t have a camera, if someone else gets it on film and submits it - or uploads it to YouTube say - and it is seen, it can be used. Too many halfwits in the U.K. have got themselves or I secured by uploading their own footage only to be fine for it later.
Nothing to do.............all day to do it....I love retirement :lol:

Love the terminology. Well if he didn't have proper control he would of been down the road.  :)

No real issue lads, he probably had a troubled upbringing, an alcoholic father, a history of family violence and drug abuse.... he didn't stand a chance. Don't be too judgemental, the Police and society in general are against him.
He just needs a cuddly rug and a cup of warm milk, he'll come right. Won't he ??
Another great day on the right side of the grass.😎

10 for fail to have proper control

Which can mean as little as not have at least three points of contact on the motorcycle including at least one hand on the bars if moving. 

He's obviously in need of an attitude adjustment and they have looked at every frame of the footage and ticked every box possible...

Not that he made it hard for them...
