Tripod, do you really think a covert camera hidden in a rubbish bin is the answer to stopping people from doing stupid shit and killing themselves?
I agree that if there is a problem in the Adelaide Hills ( and I honestly don't believe it is any worse than any other year, but they tend to focus on crap like this before a big blitz) , they may need to do something, so here's an idea out of left field or you!
How about actually getting out there as a police force and being very visible!
This has the most dramatic effect on driver/rider behaviour on the roads, not hiding speed cameras in bins to issue collect the maximum amount of money possible.
As a motorcyclist, if you are seeing a cop car or two everytime you go for a ride, you tend to think that next time you go out it is on the cards that you will see another one, so you adjust your riding to suit that environment.
The police dont even need to issue tickets to achieve what they say they are trying to do ( save lives). Just be out there and having a constant presence is the best way to reduce squidly behaviour and ultimately deaths. Unfortunately, that is not what this is about. Hiding a camera in a bin is nothing more than a revenue raising exercise.
