theoretical. What do you think would happen if
police knew you were driving without a license?
Do you think a)
police would tip their hat and say, no worries,
Or b) the police
would arrest you on the spot and have you off to
court to explain yourself.
Don't answer that
Let's add a few
details to spice up this scenario.
How about if they
not only knew you were unlicensed, but also what
vehicle you were driving.
Just for fun,
let's say they knew not only what vehicle, but
where you were headed?
How about not only
where you were headed, but what time you planned
to leave, the route you were planning to take,
what time you were due to arrive and who you
were travelling with.
OK, now you can
If you answered
b) you were wrong. Yes, wrong. Sit there in your
wrongness and be wrong.
The correct answer
is a) provided you're a member of an outlaw
Not even a
so-called super gang whose members wear their
undies on the outside, just an ordinary trike-riding
bikie on your way to your cubby house.
Yes, it's true.
Recently a very
senior member of outlaw bikie gang Highway 61
was Gold Coast-bound after the club's national

officers who called in the offence thought it
was worth the effort.
One fella, lets
call him Constable Colin, said the police were
salivating at the thought of the pinch.
They knew where,
when, and what time. They did it right, they
organised back-up from the Nerang police station
and they were all set.
``They all wanted
to get this bloke off the road - that is, after
all, our job - and they would have seized his
bike. It was perfect.''
Well, it could
have been until a senior officer got wind of
this plan and ordered everybody back to work.
The cops argued
their case, but the boss wasn't having it and
apparently gave the cops a direct order to stand
``The boys could
not believe it. This happens all the time. We
want to take these bikie thugs on and time and

defended the approach saying this one-off arrest
and seizure would not have been effective.
I can see their
national officer bearer of an outlaw gang would
have been quite nasty.
Making him take
time out of his busy outlaw gang lifestyle to go
to court wearing an ill-fitting suit and lumping
him with the cost of a fancy lawyer would have
been poor form.
Add to that the
indignity of seizing his bike. That would have
been just rude, wouldn't it?

``Mum, why don't
the police just arrest the bikies?''
wondering if there's a grain of truth in the
article, I don't know how long the police have
had the right to seize a vehicle driven by an
unlicensed driver...that's a new one to
me......maybe they just had something more
important to do , it wouldn't be hard.....jees
still no real news on the Gold Coast...
