M6 Biker Sentenced For Dangerous Driving – wheelies and selfies a favourite on the bike while riding. Riding in such a way is not acceptable say police.
A motorcyclist who performed wheelies while riding on the M6 in Staffordshire has been jailed for eight months.
Pawel Zietowski, aged 27, from Harlow, Essex, was sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court Monday (Sept 18).
The Biker was initially summoned to appear at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on Tuesday 8 August. This is where he pleaded guilty to driving a motor vehicle dangerously.
At the Crown Court Zietowski was sentenced to eight months in prison and given a 28-month driving ban. Charges for speeding and using a mobile device were dropped.
During the hearing the court was shown footage of his antics as he rode his motorbike on the M6, northbound, on the afternoon of June 3. The biker was seen doing wheelies, taking a selfie and ultimately riding a Yamaha R6 in a dangerous manner. He also travelled at above the speed limit at times.
Zietowski was pulled over at Yarnfield, between junctions 14 and 15, by an officer from the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG). There was no choice but to take action. The rider did not appear to be aware of the danger.
Video released to demonstrate the stupidity and madness of behaving in such a manner.
