In the run-up to the usual Christmas crackdown on motorists, Queensland Police have released this video compilation of the stupid things some motorists do.
We’ve edited down the bodycam vision a bit as it gets boring.
However, it includes a rider doing 160km/h in a 60km/h zones, stupid drivers holding mobile phones, not wearing seatbelts and a drunk driver spinning his 4WD out of control on a damp corner when it hits white lines — all riders would know about that one!
Interestingly, bike cops were involved in several incidents including the detection of a driver at night on his mobile phone.
Queensland police are today launching Operation Romeo Sleigh to focus on road safety from this Friday (13 December 2019) and running until January 31.
“The Queensland Police Service is releasing this vision as a reminder to all motorists using our roads during this busy holiday period, to do safely,” they say.
There will be a similar crackdown on motorists in all states, with higher police patrols and speed camera deployments.
