Parents caught what was possibly a car jacking or drugs related feud on the dashcam last night. 4 blokes in balaclavas with hammers and other weapons going for this car.
Driver then tries to run two of them over and hits a third guy.

Will upload footage if I can get them to send it over before the police come to take the sd card

Also in the local paper yesterday (unrelated) was story of guy who's Golf R was stolen by a gang who stopped behind him on the driveway and were carrying machetes. Despite giving them the keys they decided to taser him before driving off

Stay safe out there!

Hi Kerr. I was impressed by the car that saw what was coming and dodged the bullet. Always good to keep an eye on the rear view mirror.

I passed about 10 bikes on a dual carriageway this week in the dark. They had lights and we're the quicker racer types but even going full pelt they only probably do 30 to 35mph.

I actually thought what they were doing was illegal like with motorways but no.

When you've got cars and trucks rapidly approaching these guys it's really dangerous. Worse when it's in dark conditions, wet and around corners. Then a car or truck behind another truck can't see the cyclists until the lead truck changes Lane.

There was also this lorry driver up for this just a couple of weeks ago too.

No idea how that guy survived. Hopefully he recovers.
