    By bouncer bar? Is that the area that turns into a one way street at night with cars double parked, parked on corners and parked in the road? I am truly shocked, who would have thought an accident would happen there......

        That implies that people only do the right thing when they are caught doing the wrong thing. How about we all take responsibility for ourselves and just DO the right thing!!

    One of them was about five feet behind me for almost a full minute on the carriageway at normal speed before he could overtake. If I had hit brakes he would have been on my roof. So I guess I would have had to stop and waste hours dealing with a damaged vehicle, the police, gawkers and other nonsense.

    We lack leadership in the police force. This foolishness must stop.

    I would have probably hit and run too when it comes to these nuisances. They usually ride around with guns as well....So if not badly injured you may end up being the victim with one of them..... Our society and our roads in particular lack any form of law and order.

    How quickly we forget! Lots of people are blaming the police force for not enforcing laws and policing scooter riders. Yet I distinctly remember the hoopla when they were doing just that! The news blogs were full of comments that they were harassing the riders and they should focus on "criminals". I guess the RVIPF is damned if it does and damned if it doesn't!

      So they stop enforcing the laws on the scooter riders because of hoopla and news blogs? That's exactly why we say there is no leadership in the police force.
