In NSW they can and do charge you with "operating a vechile in a manor dangerious " They take your licence off you on the spot and you have go before a Court to determine when you get your licence back . I remeber reading about it in Two wheels ( about 33years ago )when they were testing a CBX 1000 six the rider who was an " A" grade race rider lost his licence for only 24 hours as he could prove he was well expernced rider and I think Magistrate was easy on hime. So I learnt from that . Never get caught !!.
It is realy up to the Police if they charge you . Some Country boys down Wagga way I think would have you locked up for an inch off the ground as they have "something to prove ".
Some ex police motorcyclist I know would have pulled you over and depending on YOUR attitude they may just warn you .
Remember its YOUR attitude that has more to do with number ,if any, tickets you get.
A few week ago I saw a young idot trying to argue with a highway patrol officer when he was pulled over . We all had a laught as this skinny short "P" driver ethinic kid was doing a dummy spit in front of his lowered japanese tubo car . The bonnet was up and the officer was not one you should argue with . The officer who I have meet is about 6' 4" about 160-180 Kgs and makes me look small . He is the Police specilist in car defects and this idot is giving him a mouthfull as the officer is writing tickets . I guess the kid dose not know the old Police motto "You can write tickets that thicker than most peoples wallet" and the saying I have heard "there is another book of tickets in the car do you want me to get it ??? " .
