“There appears to be little distinction between the quality of actions of this driver and those of the driver who killed pedestrians in Melbourne, although a difference in the scale or degree,” the AMC says.
ACT Police were made aware of this video a day later and began investigating.
A second video later emerged showing the same driver of the green Ford Falcon swerving at another rider just a minute later.
In his rejection of the appeal, The Director of Prosecutions confirms the riders were travelling at a legal lane-filtering speed:
Both offences involved a motorcycle lawfully lane filtering at approximately 25kph, with the offender travelling in the same direction at approximately 15kph and swerving marginally to the left to apparently scare the motor cyclist, possibly motivated by displeasure at lane filtering.
