We’d been tipped off over the weekend that there had been a major interception of Rebels bikies on the Federal highway.
NSW Police have this to say:
Police have issued numerous traffic infringement and defect notices after targeting an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang group ride in the state’s south at the weekend.
Officers from Strike Force Raptor conducted a mass vehicle stop of ‘Rebels’ members on Saturday afternoon at Collector as they travelled from Sydney to the ACT for a memorial ride.
Officers from South West Metropolitan Region Highway Patrol, Southern Region Highway Patrol, the Public Order and Riot Squad, the Dog Unit and ACT Police also assisted.
All ninety-five riders and three drivers were breath tested, with police also conducting a number of drug tests and motorcycle compliance checks.
Officers issued 20 traffic infringement notices, 10 defect notices and one criminal infringement notice for offensive language.
They also identified a suspended driver and one rider returned a positive result to a drug test.
Twenty Department of Environment and Climate Control notices were issued for excessive noise.
