COVID-19 Streets are empty.

Recommended Posts

Guest TT-R34

Went for a cruise last night through and around the city, seriously its a ghost town out there. - some cars are out and about taking advantage of the empty streets. 

Wondering if there are still any Brisbane meets happening or week night cruises ?? 

Its been a while since I have been in SAU scene, feel free to delete or link me to a more relevant thread if there is one. 

Here is a pic of my child that takes way to much of my money. :P

You need to take this seriously mate. Trump didn't and as a result a quarter of a million or more Americans could die. There are going to be long term consequences of this pandemic and in the modern connected world it will have to be defeated in every country before  we can expect anything resembling normalcy.

Yeh fair call guys. This is serious shit and we must adhere to the strict rules. The roads will still be there tovrip up in 3-6 months after this has cleared. My advice get on forza and cruise

250k is conservative. 8% of the country getting infected is super, super unlikely considering how lax the measures were. Florida didn't shut down the beaches and the net effect is that they helped seed the disease across the entire country:

Dr Karl says 75% infected.

 

Dirty math at 0.5% fatality rate is 125,000 deaths.

 

Keep fit, keep heathy, keep the hell away from me....😷

I was actually in the city today!! Unfortunately couldn't organise meet as I was there for work, but thought this sign kind of paints a different meaning in these current times... Still plenty of cars on the road due to construction and trades still in full swing.

I think most of us have UHF Radio's  (we don't even need to get out of the car)  & as by 'meet' I am meaning just doing some happy laps since the streets are so empty.  

It's not illegal to go for a drive, is it? I went for a drive last night & there were quite a few nice cars just lapping around. 

GTofuS-T - Engine has been changed quite a bit since that photo & yeh it did actually let through some sand from a road work site and screwed by turbo.... but that's a whole other turbo. 

& yeh thatt keep left sign.... righhhhttt.. 😑

 

Any way was just a thought to get some socialising in while keeping our distance. 

 

Be safe peeps.

Dirty math using a better estimate of maybe 2-3% where many don't get the treatment that they need to survive.

Yeah, not sure what's happening in their heads.

Had a few people at work say they have been pulled over and asked where they are going. 

Wherever the f**k I want. Quite a lot of things are still legal to do, and just going for a drive is not harming anybody. If anything, being pulled over has been the only risky thing so far. 

Going to take the motorbike bike for a slow spin up cootha, just to get the fluids in there moving and charge the battery. 

Will see how I go

Good luck with that. Certainly doesn't meet the reasons to be out of your home. It's only a 1500 ish fine...

absolutely this! I saw 2 guys getting fined the other day for sitting on a bench after getting out of the surf... ironically there were 3 cops together to do that important civic duty.

Going home from getting petrol? Just went to the bakery to get breakfast? It doesn't say I need to take a direct route home. 

People are allowed to go out and get hair cuts....

Like I  said, good luck with it. I would imagine if you tried the "doesnt say i need to take a direct route home" you will get a fine.

but hey, you do you.

what would they fine me for....?

There is even a statement from the Minister for Health and Ambulance services stating that motorcycle riding is a form of exercise.

But hey, I will do my research and what I am legally entitled to do, and you can continue to offer misinformed advice, and you do you.
