Did you see a rider get cleaned up on at Glenloch yesterday?

By johnboy 22 February 2012 25

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a collision that occurred about 9 am yesterday morning (Tuesday, February 20), which left a motorcyclist with serious injuries.

The collision occurred on the Glenloch Interchange on Tuggeranong Parkway about 150m north of the Lady Denman Drive off-ramp.

All southbound lanes on the parkway were closed for a period of two hours and traffic was diverted onto Lady Denman Drive around the collision scene.

The motorcyclist suffered multiple bone fractures and internal injuries and is undergoing surgery.

Anyone who may be able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Get off your high horse – there’s no group less law-abiding on the roads than motorcyclists.

You would think that seeing as they choose to use a most ridiculously unsafe means of transport, they would use the road sensibly.
But no.
Speeding (like – massive, gross, excessive speeding) is the MO.
And bizarre overtaking maneuvers (at excessive speed).
And using the HQJOC roundabout to jump 3 cars in the queue of eastbound traffic….’ken idiots.

i saw a duck once. i believe it may have been trying to overcharge someone for a pizza… damn ducks.

#23 You have one incident over, it seems, more than a year and that paints motorcyclists as some sort of maniacal group constantly playing fast and loose with traffic. If you go back over this and similar threads you will see theres more angst over other drivers almost everyday.Motorcyclists are just like everyone else. There some good ones and some bad ones. They dont need to be singled out just because you dont happen to fit your narrow profile.of how life should be lived.

You might have more credibility in promoting your opinions if it wasnt clear you just look for an easy troll on every topic. My only comfort in this is if Im not sure on a topic I can be certain the opposite of what you say will be the most logical and reasonable approach.

So you think motorcycling fundamentalists are justified in characterising all motorists as careless and unsafe?

I almost hit a motorcyclist last year – eastbound on Parkes way he suddenly changed into the right lane level with my front left wheel. Lucky for me there’s no gutter there because a split second later I had two wheels in the grass. Of course he then disappeared into the distance ahead of me, despite the fact *I* was already on the speed limit myself. I wonder if *he*’s still alive?

heh. Which is what the Canturf ute did yesterday, only at the Fairbairn lights, and the next two roundabouts. I guess he could contain his rage no longer.
