Human909 liked Rob Berry's discussion Say goodbye to the Harbour Bridge Steps
Sunday
Human909 replied to Rob Berry's discussion Say goodbye to the Harbour Bridge Steps
"It is funny about how they speak about there being 2000 daily cyclist trips across the bridge and not even mention consider the many who go uncounted because of the significant barriers in place."

Human909 replied to back street baron's discussion Transport for NSW is seeking feedback on the draft Roads Regulation 2018.
"There are very good reasons not to let some road users (including cyclists) from using some roads (including tunnels). But if this is an issue then the solution really should be looking at appropriate signage and appropriate routes for those road…"

Human909 replied to back street baron's discussion Transport for NSW is seeking feedback on the draft Roads Regulation 2018.
"Exactly my point earlier. Also note that plenty bridges across highways could be considered short tunnels under that definition.  Lots of highways are dug through and then have covered over sections where bridges cross. Likewise lots of shallow…"

Human909 replied to Peter H's discussion proposed speed limit of 30km/h in Brisbane
"One issue that never seems to get discussed is the effect of wide one way streets we have in many of our capital cities. These are very much pedestrian and cyclist unfriendly.  They supposably increase traffic flow but their actual benefit is…"

Human909 replied to back street baron's discussion Transport for NSW is seeking feedback on the draft Roads Regulation 2018.
"I don't see a definition of a 'tunnel' or 'bridge' for that matter.  Not in this document anyway.  From the perspective of a road user they are necessarily completely clear if you get down to the…"

Human909 replied to PeterT's discussion About time the lack of enforcement MHL made the news
""The one sided view from motorists needs to be challenged by politicians, police and media BUT they mostly hold the one sided view." In a couple of key cases they have spent billions of dollars over the years in nurturing the view. …"

Human909 replied to KimR's discussion Plea to give reformed repeat offenders a new lease - and licence - on life
"On Friday, the NSW Minister for Roads Melinda Pavey made an impassioned plea for public support: "We have to give a light of hope so after they have done some time they can actually function as a member of society." Apparently not having…"

Human909 replied to tonydelyall's discussion Uber admits to self-driving car 'problem' for cyclists
"'certainty' is what we require in aviation Great.  But aviation isn't the roads. As for road safety, zero casualties does depend upon certainty, doesn't it?And that is a pipe dream in an uncertain world. As for…"

Human909 replied to tonydelyall's discussion Uber admits to self-driving car 'problem' for cyclists
"Or perhaps we can say that the good road user doesn't leave it to chance and brakes anyway; until there is certainty. Certainty?  When does that occur? If you are driving 80 or 100kph and another car is stopped at a give way sign or…"

Human909 replied to tonydelyall's discussion Uber admits to self-driving car 'problem' for cyclists
"And I agree with you Bill.I'm not advocating or defending AVs.  Just describing how programming them to immediately react to ANY and ALL collision course detected is a practicable impossibility.  Programming them to react to ANY…"

Human909 replied to tonydelyall's discussion Uber admits to self-driving car 'problem' for cyclists
"If it was say a boulder rolling down the driveway, or a pram, best thing to do would be to immediately brake or swerve Not quite that simple, I'm not sure you understood the kid on the bicycle comparison.  Boulders and prams are not…"

Human909 replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion Vale Cell Bikes
"You can blame NSW govts anti cycling laws on many things but hardly the bust of Cell. Cell was a well established business in a non shrinking market.  Their fundamental business model doesn't seem risky, in fact it seems solid. Thus I…"

Human909 replied to James Mahon's discussion Super Car Runs Bicycle Rider Down from Behind - Akuna Bay - May 2018
"For every intersection? Even in areas of low pedestrian traffic. That would drastically reduce intersection flow capacity and would be a highly radical change. Im a strong advocate of pedestrianising our streets but that is just inefficient."
May 18
Human909 replied to James Mahon's discussion Super Car Runs Bicycle Rider Down from Behind - Akuna Bay - May 2018
"Dangerous at the best of times?  The vast majority of ALL our traffic light intersections have this. In fact it is very rare to see otherwise.  Even on 8 lane roads."

"AFAIK this didn't occur in a slip lane."
