Motorists Behaving Badly

Most motorists are excellent. Some are horrible. 

 

Authorities perceive that there is no problem.  Let's keep a record to show them they are wrong.

Listing bad drivers

Up until about 2008 or '09, there was a website called "rate the plate".  The idea was you register yourself, including your cars registration.  Then you record and describe poor driving by others.…Continue

So apparently 'ghost bikes' are a thing. Roadside memorials can have a massive meaningful impact if used effectively.…Continue

A mate of mine was riding his motorcycle on Saturday and was doored by a Nissan Patrol as he rode down Cavendish Rd. After he came to a stop after hitting a Range Rover Evoque, the driver of the Patrol got out of his car and started abusing my friend for damaging his car (friend wasn't weaving around stopped traffic). Even after the police and other motorists told this guy he was in the wrong, he still insisted he was in the right. My friend remembers the door being opened and as he hit it, he turned his head away from the door and could see the guy who had opened it was busy talking to his wife and not even looking what he was opening the door into. I hope the police charge the guy (they confirmed it was indeed his fault) but either way, the guy will have to pay for repairs not just for my mate's motorcycle but also for a car worth about $70,000.

Hope he has third party insurance...

I reported it to Hoonline, they weren't able to progres it and wanted me to report it to the local police station.  I've done that before with similar instances, and nothing happens, so I don't have an afternoon to waste.

That's not acceptable behaviour, I would report him to the cops using this form: http://www.police.qld.gov.au/forms/hoonOnline.asp

It's also worth getting a camera, this one works well for me: http://www.ozspy.com.au/products/1-Hidden-Spy-Cameras/283-High-Res-...

Northsiders, keep a watchful eye out for a tall, dark young guy in a silver Audi 179 MUP. He almost knocked me off my bike going across the narrow BAZ bridge next to Eagle Junction Station, then got out of his car, threatened me and tried to push me over before driving off.

Cyclist knocked off his bike and abused

Video: the moment when a Nottingham cyclist was knocked off his bike by a car before being abused by the occupants, who were en route to a funeral. Police later said the incident was at least partly his fault

Report it via the online hooning web form. Even if they only call him up its a win as his rego is now logged in the database. Any future complaints will show he has "form".

No point telling the police. My wife was pretty shaken up about it, naturally, but I know from past experience the police will say he's done nothing wrong and take no further action.

That's dreadful, Aaron. I hope you told the police.

Comment by StephenW on April 26, 2013 at 8:56am

Aaron:  That's terrible.  I find those sorts of encounters quite upsetting.  If Shit Head gets that wound up over a trivial traffic delay, imagine what he's like when he's really upset.  Hope he doesn't hurt someone before he's locked up. ... Stephen
