Plastic Wrap Barrier Causes Motorcycle Crash
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | July 16, 2004 | DARRYL ENRIQUEZ

Posted on 07/19/2004 9:01:53 AM PDT by BluegrassScholar

Town of Waukesha - Motorcyclist Daniel Buckel was within 10 feet when he saw the potential disaster stretched across a dark and foggy rural road just ahead.

Disbelief turned to fear, then anger, as Buckel's 2-year-old motorcycle hit a barrier of kitchen-variety plastic wrap that was wound thickly from traffic pole to traffic pole on opposite sides of Guthrie Road, south of Highway I.

The clear plastic trap, which was 3 to 4 feet above the two-lane road south of Waukesha, sent both Buckel and his passenger, girlfriend Theresa Brzykcy, into a bloody slide across the asphalt.

"It's appalling, and it's really frightening," Brzykcy said. "What was their intention? This should make people more aware that pranks like that are not as harmless as they seem.

"They had done a pretty thorough job. It was wrapped around pretty thickly," she recalled.

The malicious prank has Waukesha County sheriff's investigators concerned because other capers involving plastic wrap occurred in the town last year, although none was as serious as the motorcycle crash early Tuesday, Sheriff's Detective Steve Pederson said Friday.

Investigators were planning to canvass homes near the crash site this weekend, looking for information that will lead to a break in the case.

"When something like this happens someone always brags about it," Pederson said. "If anyone has heard anything about this or any other incident involving (plastic) wrap, contact us.

"Maybe someone had seen this happen or removed (plastic) wrap from other areas," he said. "We'd like to know about it."

Last year, a number of parked cars were found bound in plastic wrap to prevent drivers from getting inside the vehicles, Pederson said. Plastic wrap bonds together, giving it strength and making it difficult to remove.

Pederson said investigators were unaware of other incidents of wrap being stretched across a road.

The couple's injuries sent both to Waukesha Memorial Hospital. Buckel, 22, of the Town of Waukesha, required 15 stitches to close a deep gash above his right eye and also broke a finger. Brzykcy, 19, of Brookfield, got a deep cut and bruise to her right cheek along with other scrapes and bruises. The motorcycle was a total loss, Buckel said.

The 1 a.m. ride was supposed to be a short one meant to relax the couple, who have known each other for more than a year. He had just left his bartending job, and she was waiting for him at his family home. Earlier she had taken his mother to a medical appointment.

Buckel said he was driving 5 mph under the 45 mph speed limit because the motorcycle headlight had shone on deer along the road and there was a slight haze from ground fog in the low-lying area.

"I didn't see it," Brzykcy said of the barrier. "He braked so hard I figured it was a deer. My first hit was on him, which totally saved me. Then, I landed on my head (on the road). Everything went white and yellow and red, and I blacked out for a while. I woke up on my back, laying in a driveway."

Buckel, fueled by anger and concern for Brzykcy, fought off his own pain and called 911 on his cell phone, he said. Among the first emergency personnel to arrive was Beckel's best friend, Scott Sommers, a member of the Town of Waukesha Fire Department.

"I ran over to my girlfriend and looked around to see if the pranksters were still around," Buckel said. "I didn't see anyone. When my friend arrived, it made things a lot easier to cope with."

We did the plastic wrap over the toilet bowl trick in college. Just as messy, but not dangerous.

I have friends who did this between the front porch posts at my house when I was out of town on night. They poured pancake syrup over the wrap and put a flashlight behind it to attract bugs.

By the time I got there at 2:00am the light had burned out and I partially walked into the mess...sensed it at the last moment in the dark.

I reponded with 5 lbs of pinto beans on the main culprit's nicely manicured lawn.

Agree with #1, some pussy is going to get an ass-whipping from hell.

I've been riding for years and your story reminds me of a punk-ass neighbor of mine putting branches across a dirt track that I built in the woods beside my house once. I was riding an XR350R at the time (hardly a loud bike) and came around a turn to the barrier. I stopped in time. I knew that the punk was in his backyard on top of the hill above me and I yelled at the top of my voice for him to "come down here and get some you ()@&%#". Never had a problem again.

In college, we went to a sugar company, and told them we were doing an agricultural experiment. They GAVE us the seeds, and we took them to our rivals' stadium and planted them all over their football field. You should have seen it the following season.

Nope.

I had a similar problem though....about 10 years ago. Some dope who moved in next to me would come screaming up the hill in front of our house and pull into his driveway at closing hour each night. Any rational thinking human being would probably ride at a moderate speed and at least short shift the bike (HD with open pipes) at that hour. Well, after a few weeks of this, I'd wait until about 4 in the morning and throw a 1/4 stick out my upstairs window and have it land in his driveway next to his bedroom window. So every morning his wife and newborn would get a rude awakening. Fight fire with fire I always say. Within a week, the baffles went back into his straight pipes and he rode up the street at a slower speed and lower rpm. His wife was happier, and I could finally get some sleep.
As an owner of a bike shop (that sells loud pipes), I had to teach this moron that a little common sense can go a long way.

My town had kids riding motorcycles through back yards during one summer. Then one hit a wire used for hanging clothes and was decapitated. That stopped them pretty quickly.

Riding through a back yard is far different than riding down the street or in a public area on a bike trail. Anyone who would deliberately put a wire or saran wrap to inflict harm should be required to ride into it themselves.
THAT would end it quickly, too!

And I've got a 6.2 litre diesel engine on a wheeled test stand with no pipes and I'll test it whenever and wherever I want. :)

I'm no Sherlock Holmes but when push comes to shove this shouldn't be all that difficult to solve: you just need to work backwards.

-What are the specifics of this plastic wrap (I mean, we're not talking Saran-Wrap here)?

-Who makes it?

-What is the minimum that can be bought? The weight? The height of the role? Over the past year who bough a small amount of this? ("Small amount" Commerically speaking, of course)

- and so on.

....it was not my first move to settle the problem. I went to his front door and introduced myself and asked him if he might at least ride a bit slower and try to "be nice". I offered to give him "dealer cost" for any exhaust as long as he kept some sort of baffles in the pipes.....even "performance" baffles are a bit easier on the ears than open pipes...He just told me to "F" off and slammed the door.

So I moved on to "plan B".

That's funny. I used to work on the Ford Powerstroke diesels at a local dealer before I opened my bike shop. I've got some Mexicans a few business down the hill from me who rented a garage for 'car detailing' (selling dope, probably) and on the 4th of July they had a big throwdown. Didn't hear 'The Star Spangled Banner' played once, but that mariachi crap blasted out all day long.

"...I was immediately transported back to my childhood, when a neighbor strung barbed wire across our bike path."

My older brother tells the story of him and his friends rigging up a device to get a car that was crossing a friend's yard (corner lot). They filled two cans with cement with a wire between them. Propped them up on sticks at door height where the guy would drive. The car would snag the wire and the cans would come flying into the door panels.

Not sure if it actually worked. And it sounds like a good idea - until a motorcycle or sports car comes through and you hit the people in the head with the cans. Or - the guy with the dinged door panels stops and throws rocks through all of your windows.

Kids will be kids. (Stupid and hopefully VERY lucky.) I wonder if this plastic wasn't put up to catch a car (more likely that a car would be on the road). The kids are back in the woods to laugh at the driver's shock and then his efforts to get the wrap off his car. Not thinking about a motorcycle - or a paniced driver careening off the road.

And yes - even though "kids will be kids" (not thinking is the key phrase) they should get punished severely.

With all due respect, I confess to being kind of amused at this. That is, you making those threats on an internet forum. Bet you have a lot of people shaking in their shoes.

I understand your point about wanting to ride whenever you want, and if it makes too much noise, well, your point seems to be "Tough Shiite". But, of course, it's all about you, so f them anyway.

I wonder how you'd react to a banjo player moving next door, one who has carved out the post midnight hours for his practice time. And on the off chance that you like banjo music, think death metal bands, whatever it takes.

So when does the Saran wrap company get sued?

Afterall, they currently do not have a warning label on the box- which demonstrates their disregard for the safety of vulnerable consumers! The box should say something like, "Construction of transparent road barricades can be dangerous or fatal."

I am being sarcastic of course, but millions have been made from equally stupid things...

The article says kitchen variety plastic wrap. Wrap enough of that stuff together and you've got a pretty effective barrier. Things like that stack up quick, remember 1 sting is nothing, a whole bunch of strings is a baseball.

I was also transported back to my childhood... as a little kid, we had a corner lot on an old rural road, and I used to build snowmen in my yard as most kids do. However, a couple of teenage punks would come tearing down the road at night and cut across our lawn and run over my snowmen... So, one day I built my snowman around a fire hydrant, completely hiding it...

Let's just say that their habit of cutting across our yard came to an abrupt halt that night...

Ah, the memories......

When I was a wee lad, my small town gang got the great idea to 'borrow' two empty garbage cans (back then they were always metal, none of this wimpy plastic stuff) and tie them together with a long wire. That night, we placed each can on opposite sides of our side street and propped up the wire with a stick in the middle of the road about fender. Our naive adolescent minds never even considered motorcycles and fortunately one never came.

We then waited for the first car to come down our street.

Wouldn't you know it, after about 5 minutes, the first car to come down the road was the local police car!!! He hooked the wire beautifully, pulling the two cans along and making the desired horrendous amount of noise.

Needless to say, the cop was furious. We spent the next hour playing a frantic game of hide and seek with the one cop on foot and one using the squad car spotlight. Not sure how we all managed to get away.

No, we never tried that stunt again.

We used to throw milkweeds at cars driving by on a nearby road. Just sit out in the field, standup, throw, duck... Messy stuff, those milkweed things.

One day I had one sail into an open window, hit a county deputy in the face, and apparently knocked his cig out of his mouth... I'm guessing it was a cigarette because he STARTED to chase us (about 8 years old) but he turned around and noticed the front seat smoking... We noticed it, too. And ran as fast as our little feetsies would carry us...

Somehow, the guy knew it was me, and was waiting at my house when I got there. I denied up and down that it was me, but everyone knew it was me... He let my parents handle it.

I never did that again. (and by that I mean, we always made sure it wasn't a cop first)...
