NSW Police aren’t impressed with people throwing things at bike riders, or on-line trolls encouraging them. In their words:
Police are reminding the public it is an offence to throw an object from a moving vehicle. Police urge all road users to act in a respectful manner at all times.
Traffic South Commander, Superintendent Stephen Hegarty, said police continue to urge the public to report dangerous driving behaviours.
“As part of our Four Ds campaign, we’ve been urging all road users to report drink, drug, dangerous and distracted driving, when safe to do so,” Superintendent Hegarty said.
If you witness a motorist putting other road users at risk, call police in the first instance. We encourage those who have access to dashcam footage to use it where possible. Any information you can provide to police, including registration plates and vehicle descriptions, can be of great assistance.
Anyone who experiences or witnesses illegal or dangerous behaviour on our roads is urged to contact local police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
