Split, I understand your predicament, the cops can be intimidating but if we do nothing about this, nothing will be done about it.
I really feel you should do more than just send it to JM, (is he a biker?) you dont have to add your name, address cell no etc.
Lets publish the letter in all the bike mags? It will create an awareness if nothing else.
you cannot just leave it!!

OK, so now Simon has my letter, verbatim, over at Bike SA.

Happier?

Lets hope something comes of this, I know it is a difficult situation, but unless these McBride cowboys learn respect for joe public, how will joe public respect them?
I don't care if they wear a uniform, I have often kakked metro cops out for not wearing safety belts, talking on cell phones(no, if they are laughing and smiling while on the phone, it is NOT official business!!!)
These guys hide behind their uniform far to often, if they want respect they must earn it!
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!
