Police Operation on the Federal Highway

By LSWCHP - 23 March 2013 29

I drove into Canberra on the Federal Highway on Saturday arvo about 4pm. Just before the big roundabout at Antill Street there was a major police gig happening. The left lane was blocked by a police car with flashing lights, and in a clearing on the side of the road there were maybe half a dozen other parked police vehicles, a semi-trailer, some civilian vehicles, a Harley on a trailer and cops galore. It looked like the civilian vehicles were being searched, rather than the usual string of cars lined up for an RBT.

Did anybody else see this, and have some idea about what was going on? It may have been a super-duper RBT, but it didn’t look like it.

What’s Your opinion?

Nobody is afraid of the Rebels in Canberra since one of them got shot by a guy with paper bags on his hands.

I wonder how many of them were done for having too-loud bikes? Yeah, none. As usual.

When something is in the too hard basket and there’s an element of fear particularly when dealing with OMC’s it’s far easier to turn a blind eye.

Fear? Oh please………….started my day with a laugh.

We’re talking about bikies aren’t we? Police fear? Oh Jeebus, I’m laughing uncontrollably again

Oh come on they’re very very scary or was i just being subtly facetious?

Sunday morning northbound just after the Horse Park/Majura and Northbourne intersection there was the booze bus, the sniffer dogs, more than a dozen police vehicles, witches hats etc. etc. etc.

I think it was the “… and don’t hurry back” farewell from our law enforcement. They were not even remotely interested in my Skoda 🙂

Sounds like the same crew I saw. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bigger collection of cops and equipment in over 30 years living in Canberra.

so that is why there were so many thunderously loud motorbikes around today. Jeez it would be nice to hear the cops were out catching them, but I bet they weren’t. Checking seatbelts more likely.

Motorcycles don’t have seatbelts.

Nice deflection.

The Police can hit those bikes without mufflers with an on-the-spot fine.

What a great idea! I look forward to their doing it one day.

This plus a whole heap of Rebels at the servo near Costco, more on the GDE plus a “Police Operation” On the main entrance to Canberra, I’m going with it is the Rebels Bike and Tattoo show…
