Cycling in Sydney Australia
Two VMS (Variable Message Signs) introduced in recent days on Longueville Road, Lane Cove project into the green on-road bike lanes ..... cyclists riding in these lanes could well hit their heads on the display boards, hence the need for Mandatory Helmet Legislation !!!
The two trailers are owned by Kennards Hire, whose head, Sam Kennard, is a candidate in this North Sydney by-election being held this Saturday. Normally VMS's provide road safety messages or information about the road network. These VMS trailers are located on a council road creating very dangerous conditions on a public roadway. Further there is no authorization on the display as required by the electoral act.
Tipping them over is always tempting but I fear that only increases the safety hazard.
Would get quicker attention of authorities, though. Those-in-power would, however, just put it back where it was originally.
What about reporting to electoral commission?
Re reporting, I want to hold off replying to this at this moment ..... I can explain later.
OK, now I'm intrigued!
Nice of Kennards to reply, but that is hilarious!
Safety at Kennards must be one of these "Grass roots" movements, as it would appear not be flowing down from the top.
