Any one can make a mistake. This morning on my way to work, I was at a four-way traffic light crossing turning right without activation of the right-turn arrow. There was another cyclist there. He…Continue

"It was a pretty good piece. A serious message delivered with humour."

Henning replied to Henning's discussion Current policy for high speed traffic sharing
"Reasonable suggestions I think, although I'm kinda not usually in favour of speed limits in general (except on certain road types). My argument with speed limits is that they tend to remove the need or expectation to enforce traffic rules other…"

"I kinda recall that bit of 400m  or so being put in as the old service station just east of the showground turnoff was a popular low price fuel seller. You would often see cars queuing up and waiting/ blocking/ doing what they always do now -…"

"RMS is a road authority, road authorities in aus generally have immunity to prosecution for negligence.  One of the general presumptions underlying that is road authorities can't control their budgets and may not always even be able…"

"I just read your response from RMS. If you do really want to push this issue then please go ahead and report the "near miss" incidents that you have had.  Emphasis that you are reporting these near misses as a safety issue.…"

"There's supposed to be some sort of RMS community consultation going on regarding Mona Vale Rd upgrades according to the local rag this morning, sounds like the bicycle segment of that community doesn't rate, ha... In other news, NRMA…"

"Hi, I've ridden (and travelled in other ways) on many rural roads without a shoulder on them, or with a minimal shoulder. But I can't recall seeing this on any a multi lane roads with three lanes heading in the same direction. There are…"

Josh replied to Henning's discussion Current policy for high speed traffic sharing
"Yep. Ride that way often, almost always at weekends. Never had a material problem around the Showgrounds. But the left turn off Forest Way onto Mona Vale Rd is bloody dangerous for cyclists on Mona Vale Rd, and I have certainly, umm, remonstrated…"

"Of course all this highlights what we already know.  Sepparation is great, but education and enforcement of behaviour endangering cyclists is also vital.At the moment the education that most motorists are receiving is via Terrorgraph, the…"

"Um.... Aren't half or even more of Australian rural roads like this!?  The notion that shoulders/lanes for cyclists are needed is completely contrary to the majority of our roads.That said if this has a very high concentration of cyclists…"

"Well, I'd flick it to Ed Hore, BN and the MPs and sit back to see if anything happens. Maybe also the Turramurra Cyclery group. Nothing ventured, nothing gained."

"I only have so much effort in me though. At this stage I'll probably just keep riding and hope I survive."

"The relevant MPs for the road sections we have discussed would be Robert Stokes and Paul Fletcher I think."

Bob Moore replied to Henning's discussion Current policy for high speed traffic sharing
"Maybe ask Ed Hore at Cycle to take it up, or even BN if BNSW isn't too keen. Or ask Roadie groups in the area to support further action. Calls for a bike path on the north side as Jasonb said might get noticed in local media. Who is the local…"
