Police concern over Vic Club cruise

To all members,

An undesirable confrontation with Victoria Police has followed the recent Great Ocean Road cruise. The police force received complaints from members of the public with respect to burnouts, speeding and dangerous overtaking. We have been advised that some number plates have been noted and certain cruisers can expect letters in respect to these incidents.

All efforts by senior members to enforce the Club Regulations fell on deaf ears, and the seriousness of this situation has reached a new level now that we have the eyes of the legal system upon us - one of our greatest fears. We will be trying to work with the police, to ban members who were responsible for the concerning incidents on the cruise. However, most of these cruisers are not necessarily known forum members, or Club members.

As a result, more drastic action must take place. As reinstated Acting President, I am recommending to the committee that for the time being, no large-scale public cruises take place in Victoria except those specifically going to Heathcote. Some of us are starting to believe that it is outright impossible to have a safe E Series cruise on public roads - a concern reinforced by the increased number of attendants.

Our events have become so large that we no longer control them. Whilst the high attendance and passionate enthusiasm of the highly popular cruise is something of an achievement for the Club, the reports of irresponsible driving are loud enough to make me feel that the safety and security of the general public should be a much higher priority. Final decisions and updates on this matter will be added as they come in.
