Racerbamf The scary thing with the new law is that it doesn't specify bikies. It just talks about groups of people in general. The focus is currently on bikies, but it could just as easily be applied to any group of people doing something that police don't like.

I don't ride with other people much, but if I did and got pulled over for it I'd be pissed!

You know the law isn't working when riders are getting pulled over while riding in a funeral procession because there's a group of them.

Punch What will happen as people ride to the upcoming Qld motorcycle Expo?

Even though they may not know each other, will four at the same traffic lights constitute a violation?

Classic case of a fix for a minority and f#ck up for many.

I have not read the legislation, but how far apart is not riding together?

davy.j We aren't allowed to ride in groups of more than three without being stopped and harassed by the tax collectors and be branded as a "Gang"

steveb64 Holy sh1t! You poor buggers. And I thought the Americans had a police state. <groan> - I guess this means our slime bag PM will be rubbing his hands together, and enacting similar laws here next.
I think I'm finally glad I turned down that AU$110K job, back in 2000. And I'm too old to try again now.

So - how long do you reckon before Tony Abbot starts enacting the same laws as federal laws? I'm sure he'll be watching the 'test cases' in Queensland.

Bly Here they call 1%ers bikies and anyone else bikers.

Bonaventure I think that the Australian media ought to use the term biker instead of bikie.

Queensland perfect one day Nazi Germany the next

WA already has those stupid party laws, you need a permit for a gatheringf of mor e than 12 people.
Im sure the police will be busy this christmas monitoring all the family get to gethers of more than 12 people

I witnessed its get out of control when my daughter went to a well organized party with security the permit the whole lot, that was attended by the riot squad and WA police chopper and subsequently shut down at 9:30 pm which basically put 60 odd teenagers onto the street to party instead of this particular house.

For all the absurdities of Queensland's anti-bikies legislation, its bill cracking down on parties is probably worse, writes Chris Berg.

Every government has a reform program of some description. The reform program of Campbell Newman's Queensland government is to expand, to a ludicrous and dangerous extent, the powers of the police.

Admittedly, the title of the Police Powers and Responsibilities and Other Legislation Amendment Bill doesn't have the same sort of grunting aggression as the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Bill, which was passed earlier this year to target bikies.

But for all the absurdities of the anti-bikies legislation, the bill currently being considered by the Queensland parliament is probably worse.

The bogey-man in this bill is "out-of-control" parties. No doubt you can conjure up such a threat to public order in your mind. Hundreds of drunk teenagers spilling out on the street and damaging nearby property.

But according to the draft bill, a party is a gathering of twelve or more people. And it is considered out-of-control if three people at that party do something like be drunk in a public place, cause excessive noise, unreasonably block the path of a pedestrian, litter in a way that might cause harm to the environment, or use "indecent" language.

The punishment for holding a party that gets out-of-control? A $12,000 fine or a year's jail. In other words, a party host is punished for the actions of party guests. For good measure, the bill allows police to enter property uninvited without a warrant.

Out of control parties are a classic moral panic. They involve teenagers. They involve alcohol. They involve new technologies - house parties are now being organised on social media. This apparently makes them worse than they used to be.

CAlexio good to know.. if I ever make it to Australia on a weekend ride, I will definitely avoid Queensland... hopefully the area isn't too big as the gas tank on my hyper only goes 70miles and I'll be damned if I spend my hard earned $s on queensland gasoline.

going out to get a tattoo now.
