"Was there ever a chance of a separate bike tunnel?
Yep. Simple, have one vehicle lane in each direction instead of the two eastbound. Then there would have been plenty of room for nice bike lanes.I don't regularly ride that area but…"
"It does look like an added safety improvement. But given the cost in installation, maintenance and some decreased efficiency of the trams the likelihood of it being implemented across the board pretty much ZERO. Implemented in key…"
"I think an educational tour to Amsterdam is in order.
(Or Melbourne if your Amsterdam is a little too far.)
Tram tracks are a hazard. But they are predictable and can be safe with some care and basic skills."
"The coroner was shown the video. The police had seen it until preparation for the coronial inquest.

Comments like this make me wonder whether you have ever ridden a bicycle at night before.
-a. That isn't 3000 lumens of usable light.
-b Any light that…"
"Before you completely abandon things see whether you can do a simple bulb replacement.
Like Scientia said earlier. Halogens use much more power. Normally about 5 times more than LED.
Now not all bulbs will be available in LED…"
"The conversion isn't that complicated to get a 6V battery involved.
Waterproofing really isnt needed for 6V apart from rusting. But covering exposed connections would be smart it would be a good ideal.
mAh ratings and length of time all…"
"True. The 1% claims I made were based on lights off, higher speeds and on time.
If you have a powerful set of lights and are just riding at a more moderate speed then the percentage of total energy does increase. 10-15% is entirely…"
"I hope I'm not being a pain. But before you take the plunge you should recognize what is an issue and what isn't.
