I was waiting at the intersection of Wakefield and Northbourne, probably 10.30 or 11pm last night.
The light goes green so I put my foot down - right as I stick my nose out some fuckwit trying to cross in front of us comes pelting straight into the side of my car. He was this close to going up the windscreen.
I roll down my window and start giving him a piece of my mind - he hit me right in front of the driver door over the wheel so he's right there getting up off the ground.
He was obviously drunk (and not wearing a helmet!!!!!): "Listen man I didn't scratch ya shit and if you keep being lippy I'll punch you in the head"
I told him what I thought of that and before I got out of the car he rode off.
I'm fucking fuming! Actually the cunt did scratch my car and I couldn't get a name or even scooter number off him. Bullshit. Emailed Neuron about it.
Fuck the piece of shit scooters.
I was buying groceries at Countdown Quay Street yesterday. My electric scooter (Mi m365) was locked to one of the three bike rack next to the carpark entrance between 5pm - 5:40pm. When I came back outside with groceries, it was gone.
I made a police report and I spoke to the staff and they looked at the CCTV footage. A guy wearing singlet and shorts "broke off" the bike lock and just rode off with it. Sadly that's all the description I got since their CCTV is pretty far away and couldn't get any good look. Staff said they'll send the footage to the police with my ref number.
I know it's very unlikely I'll get it back. There's very little to go on and it's a very common scooter with no distinctive markings on it. In hindsight I should've save all the serial numbers, attached a GPS tracker on it, paint it or whatever. I guess I need to rant. I've been feeling mad since yesterday and can't seem to focus on anything.
