Police video catches speeding night rider

Night rider

Queensland Police have charged a man with dangerous operation of a motorcycle after the night rider was videoed riding at more than three times the limit earlier this week.

They have now released the Polair video of the incident in north Brisbane which shows the bike going through a fast foot outlet and speeding through streets on Tuesday night (31 March 2020).

Officers seized the 34-year-old Narangba man’s motorcycle for 90-days.

Night rider

Police will allege around 9pm officers were patrolling Anzac Avenue in Kallangur when they were overtaken by a motorbike travelling at high speed.

It is alleged the night rider turned into the drive thru of a fast food outlet where he bent the number plate, so it was not visible, before riding off.

Police attempted to intercept the motorcycle however the rider failed to stop, “speeding off with the front wheel rising into the air”.

In other words, a wheelie.

The officers last saw him riding west along Anzac Avenue.

The motorcycle is alleged to have sped past another police vehicle on the same road which detected it travelling at 191km/h in a 60 zone.

The motorcycle was tracked by Polair1 with police intercepting it in Thomas Street, Narangba a short time later.

The male rider returned a positive roadside drug test and was conveyed to North Lakes Police Station where he was issued with a notice to appear in the Petrie Magistrates Court on July 6 for evade police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and drug driving.
