Australians Driving Over 110 MPH to Summon Ghost of Dead Motorcyclist (Video)

Ghost RiderNeil Keene writes in the Daily Telegraph:

It could be one of the most bizarre reasons ever offered by a speeding driver — “A ghost made me do it.” But that is exactly the story being put forward by superstitious motorists hitting speeds of up to 180km/h on a road north of Newcastle, supposedly to conjure a ghost.

Port Stephens police have issued a warning to drivers after it emerged that young people were driving at dangerously high speeds along a stretch of Lemon Tree Passage Rd to conjure the spirit of a 20-year-old motorcyclist killed in a crash with a speeding driver in the area three years ago.

A handful of videos have been posted on YouTube, allegedly showing a ghostly bright light appearing in the rear windscreen of cars that start driving at dangerous speeds.Some locals are convinced the light is that of the motorcyclist’s ghost, in pursuit of people who drive dangerously.

  1. Australians drink too much.

    • And smoke too much.
      But the glorious combination of both allows us to invent new and creative ways to 'get chicks in cars at night and the drive really fast'

    Too fast to bother with, especially because you only need to go 88 to travel back in time.

    • You need a flux capacitor in order to accomplish that. How many of our friends in Oz had this on had when they were attempting to summon the ghost … ?

      I must ask former Disinfo site editor and Aussie extraordinaire Alex Burns … (stay tuned) …
