A MAN was arrested after he allegedly rode his motorcycle on green strips and pathways in Monash yesterday (June 28).
Police attempted to stop the man, a 20-year-old, who was riding a blue Yamaha dirt bike, but he kept riding.
They found him at a nearby residence and charged him with aggravated dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, driving on a footpath, riding a motorcycle without a helmet, driving without a license, driving an uninsured vehicle, driving an unregistered vehicle and breaching a good behaviour bond.
He will face charges before the ACT Magistrates Court.
ACT police are now reminding the public that it is against the law to ride dirt bikes and quad bikes on public parkland, including ovals and greenbelts.
Footage or information of illegal or dangerous dirt bike riding can be provided by contacting Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
While the program announced today seems full of bounce and vigour, in contrast to the clear and self-explanatory “Enlighten” and “Floriade”, the enigmatic title is reminiscent of some other Canberra festivals, “You Are Here”, “I am Me” and “Art Not Apart”, with the potential to confuse rather than enlighten the public, writes arts editor HELEN MUSA.
