    A while back I was burning along the Melbourne - Geelong freeway when I saw
    a Ducati with its hazards on parked on the right hand side.
    I pulled up and he waved me on saying something about the interlock playing

    On NYE I was talking to a guy who had a interlock fitted to his car.

    It was explained that this was fitted because it was ordered by a court.
    He also has/had a problem with driving while pissed.

    Penalties for messing up again are 5 years, this includes driving something
    without a interlock regardless of BAC.

    Sounds heavy to me though I guess if you do the crime...... however

    This interlock device is basically a breathalyser immobiliser that requires
    the driver to blow 0.00.
    The interlock will then require further samples WHILE DRIVING at random
    times but usually around 5-10 minutes.
    Of course there is a cost to fit the interlock.
    They also need to be checked/serviced every month at a cost.

    Seems a little bit of a money making scam and also a risk to the driver and
    others who are around while the driver is trying to provide another sample.

    Note, the interlock will request a sample and allow the engine to continue
    running while this is provided. You could basically drive for hours so long
    as you provide a sample WHILE DRIVING multiple times.

    very strange,sounds dangerous on a motorcycle having to breathe into it
    every so often.Aim it into the wind that would have zero alcohol.

    Do you have a valid reason for driving over the speed limit rider? Wull
    offersher, uff I don't do at least 110 the interlock doesn't get enough draft
    and me motor keeps stopping.

    Wouldn't it be simpler (not to mention safer) to just not drink & ride?

    Hi betty, you poor wee soul....

    I hope this is a holiday trip and not one of those "last gasp" visits.

    Even for folk who live (?) in Canberra, the UK at this time of the year
    is no laughing matter.

    (Well, actually, it is, so long as you don't have to be there. ;-))

    You'll have to shout, you're a long way away... and what the f**k are you doing in the UK, especially this time of year?

    Have a nice one over there.

    Hi all - no, oddly enough I'm here for a holiday! (catching up with rellies I haven't seen for years). The weather, while (mostly) gloomy and grey, is unseasonally mild. I chose to come at this time of year because it's the only school holiday long enough to allow me to spend a decent length of time over here. Arrived Boxing Day and will be back in Oz on 21 Jan.

    Hope you're all having lots of lovely rides. Motorbikes seem a bit thin on the ground here at this time of year.
