& # 39; It is worrying and dangerous behavior that can cause serious injury to a cyclist or pedestrian & # 39 ;, a police spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia via email.

Thrilling fishing lines or wires strung between trees can kill a motorcyclist or motorcyclist who hits the unseen line in speed with his neck.

The deadly danger of hidden wires was immortalized in the 1974 Australian film Stone, in which wire was threaded over a road that beheaded a motorcyclist.

It is believed that the wire was intended to deter motorcyclists.

& # 39; I cannot approve this at all & # 39 ;, one resident wrote.

& # 39; But people in the Morphett Vale area are tired of people driving unregistered motorcycles around the parks at all hours of the morning and treating people with disdain when they are approached. The police do nothing about it when she is called. & # 39;

& # 39; The community needs to take a stronger stand on this before someone is killed (by the wires and or the riders). & # 39;

Residents in the Morphett & # 39; s Vale area joined together in 2017 against teenage cross bikers, Adelaide Now reported at the time.
