Great! Love it.
Could only happen in WA where free spirit is alive and flourishing.
Cops should concentrate on the REALLY bad people or have they run out of crime.

"Police are concerned for the safety of those riding on the tables with no protective clothing, especially when on roads alongside motor vehicles," Western Australia Police said.
Just proves that Mr. Plod still lives on in police forces of the world.

As I drive through the 40kmh CBD zones I see many cyclists flying past me in their protected bicycle lanes well in excess of 40kmh but wearing naught but some flimsy lycra covering that in the
event of a crash will do nothing to protect their skinny flesh or limbs.

Why not just come out and say that these guys are just breaking the rules through larrakinism?

It's hard to get a park at Scarb's on a hot day. Bring the park bench and just pull up on the grass, no problem.

Supercheap auto has been flogging motorised eskys of late (why?) - but good luck to them - another thing to add to the list of dumb ways to die/end up in emergency. I bet summernats this year will be full of them!

The xmas tree is already up at Scarborough, although the fun Police should be by soon to pull it all down.

The only thing better than the sight of that Christmas tree would have been the event which took place to produce the empty cans.

Guess it's time to put my chrissy tree up as well:

Anyway back to the original post, there's no way that those picnic tables are secret MB prototypes - plain wood? Come on, where's the composite body structure, alloy wheels, alacantra clad seats - and no AMG badges anywhere!
