Those pesky power poles keep jumping out in front of people something should be done about them immediately

Really nothing to say about fools like this one.  All you can really say is that he got what he deserved, but since it wasn't fatal, it will just be a matter of time before he's out there doing it again.

Red plated motorbike, not yet paid taxes + insurances. Perhaps no driving license either. Helmet?
Daily we see them driving, slaloming with speed 80-100 kmh in busy road traffic
All of them at certain moment get their moment of truth.
Remember, the moterbikes can drive high speed, but are not designed for it.
In some European countries they have speed limiters, 40kmh.
