I never use the path, but I don't often go north on Lombard. I see lots of riders on the road heading that way though. I think I used the MUP east of Kelly Point once a few years ago, and got so...

What to do

From what I've seen on tv, Australia has exceptionally lenient sentencing laws.

Someone could put a bullet in this jackass and probably get off with 18 months.
