    The Police RPU account tweeted the video below on February 3rd, saying, “Lots of damage at a collision on Crawl Hill this afternoon. Straight stretch of road – how do you crash?” Uh, ask yourselves, how did two police bikes crash on Frog Lane straight or rearend a car on the causeway?

    @sage – police bike collision on Frog Lane, caused when one bike turned across the path of the other in a training evercise. Police bike that rear ended a car on the Causeway was caused because the car had defective brake lights.

      So because the frog lane situation was an exercise, that gives the BPS a free pass for having Non Riders….#tryagain…oh and btw if joker wasn’t riding like a jack@$$ on the causeway he would have saw traffic slowing. #justsaying

      So that makes their comments acceptable? What if something similar happened here….

    • sage says:

      So they were at fault then and that is how crashes happen on a straight road, thanks for clearing that up. Defective brakelights? That’s a good one, the bike was too close so was at fault. Turning across the path of another motorcycle means a lot more training is needed, also Know it all, were “due care” tickets issued, like they love to throw around for third laning? Or were they just let off with zero consequences like the two cops who drove the wrong way down Church street all on cctv, and were found in a bar and the responding officers did nothing either?

    • walls says:

      Just because it was a training exercise, it doesn’t or shouldn’t absolve officers from riding safely on the roads. Was the officer who turned onto the path of the other charged with due care?

      In what way were the brake lights defective, was it because the center brake light was missing with the aftermarket spoiler despite the other two still in operation? Regardless even if all brake lights were defective, the onus is still on the following vehicle to keep clear and blame would still be apportioned 2/3 to the rear vehicle.

      Lol.

    How is the Mass attendance at your parish compared to a few years back? How is the charitable giving in your parish? Are finances frequently in the black or is your parish finance committee frequently wondering how the bills are going to get paid in the next quarter? If your finances are in good shape, how about the average age of your parish membership?
