"That guy averaging 25km/hr footpathing it to get past a taxi with an empty road in front of it, at the exact time you would expect pedestrians to be trying to exit the roadway. Terrible riding. There is no safety benefit provoking a close pass for a…"
"All this proves to me is that the police were never sensible about enforcement in the first place. ie they wasted many officer-days on foam lids and a traffic light that fails to detect cyclists in the first place at the spacious end of…"

"Its a path on one side of the road - which forces people to cross the road twice to use it, when travelling in the other direction.

"0.14 is the reaction time of a drag racer to a racing tree. A semi expected event for me has been measured at 0.7 of a second (ie 0.7 seconds from a light turning yellow to the onset of audible brake noise on a camera. 0.7 is an estimate…"
