    Thai authorities said alcohol may have been a factor and Ms O'Connell was not wearing a helmet.

    Most of us survive the stupid stuff we do when we are young - some don't. I believe that will never change ...

    Speaking of stupid stuff...............................



    Senior Constable Lance Munckton was shocked to clock a cyclist travelling at 56km/h in a school zone this month.


    WEST Metropolitan Traffic’s top officer has issued a reminder to cyclists that they must abide by the same road rules as motorists after a man was caught speeding through a school zone on his bicycle.

    Senior Constable Lance Munckton was shocked to clock a professional cyclist doing 56km/h through a children’s crossing outside St John’s Primary School in Scarborough during morning peak hour earlier this month.

    It was the fastest speed of a bicycle the officer had ever recorded in 28 years of policing. Sen Const Munckton gave the rider, a 34-year-old Mt Hawthorn man, a fine of $150 – an infringement the cyclist was reportedly “very annoyed” with.

    West Metropolitan Traffic officer-in-charge Patricia Lagan said although there was no one crossing at the time, a bicycle hitting a pedestrian at that speed was likely to kill or seriously injure them.

    “It was during a time when children and their parents could reasonably be expected to be crossing, along with traffic wardens,” Senior Sergeant Lagan said.


    “The key message here is cyclists are subject to the same road rules as motorists and will not be given special treatment by police.”

    A cyclist could be liable for up to 10 years’ imprisonment for culpable driving under the criminal code, if a bike was ridden in a way that caused serious injury or death.

    Cycling WA chief executive Garry Chandler said 99 per cent of cyclists would not reach these speeds.

    “This is the first time I’ve heard of a cyclist being done for speeding,” Mr Chandler said.

    “Speeds likes this aren’t uncommon for professional or top-level athletes, but cannot be sustained for a long period of time.

    “But clearly cyclists are bound by the same road rules as everyone else.

    “Flouting these rules could create a dangerous situation for everyone, especially when recorded in a school zone.”

    The cyclist could not be contacted for comment.

    Must have been very drunk or stoned, not to see a food cart outside a nightclub, not like it was in a dark back ally.

    The 2nd photo of her is terrible, makes her look ugly and sickly thin.
