Re: Legally ride a closed lane

I often wonder if a lane is legal or not :? (obviously, all the time) but what I mean is .. there are a lot of lanes that are said to be tro'd but WHO has tro'd them, and what is their legal base for doing so? just because the council or parks authority SAY the lane is closed or restricted, or even...

Re: New wheels brake problem yea or nea

Re: Should police be allowed to chase motorcycles ?

My Mum's car was once crashed into by the local drug dealer when he was being chased by the police...they knew who he was and where he lived, but the reason for chasing him was to get him before he could dispose of what was in the car.

Re: Should police be allowed to chase motorcycles ?

Interestingly....when the first police constables appeared they were unarmed, except for a stout stick.
