Australian Sportbike Hoons Giving Po-Po Worry, Speed Cameras The Bird



A group of five motorcyclists Down Under are giving the police fits, as they buzz past speed cameras, front wheel in the air, middle fingers flying, often while carrying passengers. Currently, the cameras only shoot the front license plate, but due to acts of hoonage like this, that's about to change, making the bikers culpable for their speed and recklessness.

"There's always someone out there who's got to show off. Let's educate them about the danger, not just whack fines on people and seize bikes," says Motorcycle Industry Association spokesguy Craig Marsland says. But Craig, does a hoon truly know he's a hoon In this case, we think so.

Was reading an article the other day about some highschool kids in somewhere middle america that started printing liscence plate pictures, taping them to their plates, then speeding past the camera, with the ticket being issued to the victim of the prank.

I appreciate a decent prank, but aren't bikers hassled by cops enough as it is? Anyone drawing more undue attention just creates an unfair judgment for all of us.
