Bloody Water Corporation

Recommended Posts

This is what happens when you try to do the right thing.

I went out for a ride on Monday, trying to get ready for an enduro coming up. I got 200 meters off the road down near a Water Catchment area behind my house, when a Water Corp car came around a corner and stopped right in front of me. Stupidly I stopped, trying to do the right thing and thinking I would only get a warning. They took all my details, took a photo of my bike and then explained that there is a fine coming as well. The fine will only be about $80 but on top I have to pay their legal fee's for court, $300+. Apparently if I was outside the 2km zone around the Dam then he would have let me off.

Where is the incentive to stop?? You might as well take your chances and give them a run for their money.

Poor Ass 👍 Dan

Well, not to be a downer, but if you knew you weren't supposed to be there....

Sucks about the fine, though. Had it happen to my friends in Australia, they were near a dam, too.

Wankers! You're right about not stopping next time.

Its getting to be as bad as Germany.

A group of friends were riding in the forest, after a bad get-off the rangers turn up and they are more concerned about the oil / gas that leaked from the bike than my mates broken body!
