Bentley Drivers a Menace to Society

By che - 11 May 2005 87

ABC have this story on a fellow caught doing 231kph near Collector in his Bentley after being tipped off by other drivers.

Does anyone else remember another bloke (he was well known personality of some sort) getting caught speeding in his Bentley around 5 years ago doing 180kph or so and then getting off on the argument that it was a first offence in 40 years of driving and that his car is designed to be safe at those speeds. Any chance its the same person, or same car?

What’s Your opinion?

Wow! Nearly 4 years!! If this is the reaction time for people like Farnarkler, then I don’t wanna see anyone doing more than 20 kph!!!

LOL. Kramer, does RA have an archive and of so, what IS the oldest thread?

The bentley was flying past trucks – responsible speeding means slowing down to overtake.

bonfire, if you were doing 210kph in a 120y, it would be out of a plane. no 120y can ever achieve 210kph, the wobbles at 110 are bad enough. speeding does kill. hitting an inanimate object on the road will certainly kill you, be it a rock, a wombat, sheep, person, roo, etc, if you are doing 200kph. autobahns are far better than any roads we have here. one pothole, when your vision is tunnelling at high speed – just seeing the tarmac, and you are history. personally, I would rather jump out a c130 and rely on my chute.

now … this is not entirely relevant to this thread but here’s a link to a longer version of the rta’s “little boys” add

One day people will realise they are being fed BS about speeding. The reality is that speeding is simply the easiest to enforce.

And yes, on a decent road, cruising at 120km/h in my well maintained V8 seems entirely appropriate. What we really need is to practice enforcement in suburban and school areas. On higher speed roads, general courtesy and maintaining traffic flow are more important.

D’oh! Didn’t notice it at all. Was too busy getting over remembering the Hungry Horse yesterday!!
