You'd be foolish to think they would pass up another chance to milk a few more dollars out of visitors and locals............

Some clown will still have his bike impounded and 99.99999999% of riders will carry on as normal.

The only thing that worries me is some over-zealous plod wanting to book me because I sped up to overtake some-one clearly travelling below the posted speed limit.  That situation occurred today as I overtook a granny in her Mazda 2 doing 90 kmph on the Monaro Hwy.  I'm in the Pajero, trailer attached (fully loaded), opportunity aorse, so I hit the go pedal.  Plod has a stationary car parked on the other side of the road as I exceed 110kmp (might have been higher) but I didn't get chased down, flogged and body searched (as I'm sure would have happened in Vic).  No sign that plod pinged me so I'm hoping he read the situation and I don't get one in the mail.

The overtaking situation is the only thing I'm worried about - I'll take my chances otherwise.

I've been done twice in the distant past for speeding whilst overtaking, once in NSW and once in Vic.......... You were lucky
