  1. I would like to see us have a version of the 5th Amendment in US Constitution: Obviously would need to be updated a little to match the times.
  2. This is a real problem. If it's legalised we can assume it would still be an offence to drive under the influence of Marijuana, given how long you can test positive to THC on a mouth swab how would one go driving within a few days of smoking? Should you just plan to not drive at all for the next week or two? Should you declare to the officer that pulls you up that you smoked x days ago and then go through the hassle of a blood/urine test to get an accurate reading of the THC in your system? It really seems impractical. Same goes for work. My workplace we are expected to be subject to random breath and drug tests and any time. Say you smoke on a Friday night, get tested Monday with a swab and show positive. You'd then have to get a blood/urine test to get an accurate reading. You'd be expected to stay off work until the results come through which can take time...Could you go through that every week? I doubt it. I'm not a smoker, never tried it or really have a desire to try it. I am for legalisation however I don't think it's as easy as "Ok you can now carry and grow x amount" without first thinking through some of the logistics of enforcing workplace and driving sobriety.
  3. His appeal contained two portions to it. First was that the Drink Driving offences previously committed (2 previous instances) were done so before drink driving was a prescribed offence under the 'anti-hoon' legislation. The second grounds for appeal was that the forfeiture of his vehicle after a punishment (In the form of a fine) had already been imposed. This double punishment is unconstitutional and also caused the total amount of financial punishment for the offense to exceed the maximum allowable penalty. The first grounds for appeal was rejected with reasons provided in the link above. The second grounds for appeal is what was successfully upheld and renders the laws unconstitutional. I definitely agree with the decision in that imposing a forfeiture on top of the existing penalties is flawed and unfair. I am always surprised by how soft the punishments seem to be against people caught Drink Driving. Too many times you hear about people being booked more than once for DUI and they get a short license suspension. Problem is there isn't any reliable way to stop recidivism for this type of offense. Crushing or confiscating cars certainly doesn't seem like a great solution other than to hit someone hard in the wallet but even that won't stop a lot of people. To me it seems like it's more of a publicity stunt than effective solution.

  7. Give Lionel a call. Would recommend him a million times over. http://www.ocdonline.com.au/ He's done a bunch of cars for me and for other forum members both on NS and JDMST. He has his own thread over on JDMST where you can see his work as well as the gallery on his site. He also keeps albums of every car with an explanation of what was done on his Facebook page for OCD.
  8. NSW Spotted Thread

    Spotted a white S15 (JAP15S) in the alley behind my work in North Sydney this morning. Looks very tidy
  9. UNDERCOVER COP - YELLOW S15

    This behavior perpectuated by the police, in my opinion, is unacceptable. A SIMILAR incidence occurred to an acquaintence of mine. An unmarked Subaru WRX essentially entrapped them by initiating a street drag from a set of traffic lights; then pulled them over once they reached 160kmph. At that speed it was an instant LOSS of licence so now people think my acquaintence is a LOSER for not having a licence. that is my STORY, no LOOSE ends. I once got pulled over by an unmarked Triton, there was no way i could have spotted it. By the time you could see usual undercover behavior (follow technique) its too late. Entrapment is when they get you to commit a crime you would not have done under normal circumstances. By creating a situation for them to commit a crime they are not engaging in entrapment unless they persuaded him into racing them. I think it's safe to say if a simple gee up from a car at the lights got him to race then he would have raced anyone else who wasn't a cop.
  10. Last time I filled up I had done ~190+km on 9 litres (16 litre tank) That's with some "spirited" riding and a bunch of short trips.
  11. I have my learner license and another 4 days till I can go for my reds. I bought a Yamaha XVS 650. Put on a set of pipes and an air cleaner kit and you have a mini harley with a sound that will fool most people into thinking it's the real deal. Mine is just tiding me over till I get on my fulls then I'll buy a proper harley I have Vance and Hines short shots and a Baron's Big Air Kit. It's an easy bike to ride, very comfortable. It is a little heavier than the 250 sport bikes so it doesn't have the same turning circle but general riding is a breeze. Just don't try to do U-Turns in a tight street. They also hold their value like you wouldn't believe. There is also a lot of custom parts for them if that takes your fancy. I'll be changing the indicators, mirrors and a few other little bits. http://imgur.com/wqZ0W Quick word of advice - don't use this bike when going for your P's; the majority of the test involves tight, low speed turns so the weight and heavy disposition of your cruiser work against you in a big way. I'm a big guy (6"1, 120kgs) and even I had to wrestle my shiny new CB400 through the Ps test. I passed w/100% score but I can't imagine doing it on a cruiser. Spend the $80 to hire one of their 125cc bikes (or borrow a mates), they are so light you can flick them around like a push bike = breeze through the test. Yeah planning on borrowing my mates Hysoung 250. You are absolutely right would be a nightmare to do the test on

  15. We had just come back from a family trip in our EA falcon. Parked the car at a shopping centre. We had all our clothes and everything in the car from the holiday. We come back out and the car is gone. We were freaking out for 3 days as we lost all our stuff as well as the car till the Police called and said it had been found back at the shopping centre on the top floor (We parked on the ground floor) We get the car back and it's in the same condition it was left in with 1/2 a tank of petrol more than when it was taken as well as a $150 tool kit they used to get into the car and get it started and $50 cash in the boot that wasn't there before the car was taken. All our clothes and everything were still in the car undisturbed I guess we had joy riders with a conscience lol
