Motorists in Australia have been hitting 180km/h in an attempt to conjure the ghost of a dead motorcyclist.

Drivers were caught driving at dangerously high speeds along a stretch of Lemon Tree Passage Road in the hopes of summoning the ghost of a motorcyclist who was killed in a crash with a speeding driver three years ago.

"It could be one of the most bizarre reasons ever offered by a speeding driver - "A ghost made me do it''."

I bet they would have crapped their pants if the ghost appeared once they got caught lol Stories like this make me glad I'm taking the bus. I'm wondering if they're taking video with their cell phones and texting their friends all at the same time?LMAO

First the UFO and came the "sparking vampire" and now its a ghost?! Would people stop blaming the paranormal! Excuses won't work.

How do they know its not just someone on a bike in the distance who then takes a different road off in another direction? I was thinking the same thing!

At speeds of 180km/h, instead of conjuring a ghost, they'll become one. Geez. There are other ways to communicate with the dead.

I am just amazed at how easy it is for people to get drivers licenses. I don't know about Australia but in the US it seems you only need to be 16 and have a pulse. Oh and if you fail they let you keep trying until you pass. No wonder there are so many crashes and deaths on the road. This story just reiterates how deranged people are. I wouldn't doubt that some of them were telling their friends on their cell phone. Hey Dude! Guess how fast I'm going? The combination of speed, stupidity and cell phones happens all the time and these people actually believe they can drive just fine while talking... [More]

I can just see every other vengeful spirit standing around the water cooler in the Amityville breakroom kicking themselves thinking "Geez, here we are working our ecto plasm off trying to drive people insane so that they kill themselves, and it turns out all we need to do is tell them they have to engage in life threatening activities in order to conjure us up, and not only will they do it, but they do it willingly and in large groups? And the only proof we need to provide in order to ensure they keep doing it is a vauge easily explainable light in the distance?"

Well I guess at least they are attempting something in the pursuit of science or with the pursuit of the paranormal.
