"ok - that's bad.  They should log a complaint with the local plod.. who will hopefully put some patrols down there to catch any speeding motorists. There's really no other way to deal with it, imho."

"Yes, could be Balmoral. Several cyclists witnessed  4 McLarens riding fast and in very close formation around Cottage Point on that Saturday. Guess this photo was taken towards  the end of the event."

"McLaren car club was at it again on Saturday with high speed drivng near Cottage point and finishing at what looks like Church Point. When is it ever OK to use national parks as a a race…"

"You'd wish they have some sort of retribution and no longer conduct road tests the same way, but looking at a recent Au road test of the 570, there's mention of understeer at silly speeds on public roads!! You can only hope it's…"

James Mahon replied to Bob Moore's discussion Safe rail crossing for cyclists.
"I know several riders who avoid streets with tracks completely. However I just don't think anyone is really considering this issues at the moment... is it mainly bike riders or would it pose a risk for wheelchairs, high heels and the like? JM"

James Mahon replied to PeterT's discussion Cyclist killed, Liverppol Road / Cosgrove Road in South Strathfield 3/Oct/2018
"Yup - could be truck passed the rider, slowed and turned left OR the rider was undertaking. Either scenario should have been designed out of the intersection. I'm pretty game on the bike but I would never ride on the Hume Highway - which is…"

"Yeah he'll get paid by the CTP insurance but I wonder what happens to the Trivetts in regards to getting insurance in the future. My guess and hope is they won't be able to, does anyone know for sure? I'd also guess that CTP will be…"

"Police recreation > Actual Footage of Mike riding. This poor quality safety theatre. Tick a few boxes and move one to the next fatality... JM"

"Or the driver will incriminate himself, then the Police will have to press charges aka actually do their job! JM"

James Mahon replied to Dabba's discussion It was all Mike Hall's fault that he was killed
"There is no explanation other than the motorist was driving too fast for the road/conditions despite not exceeding the speed limit. You don't drive around a bend in the road that you can't see around, especially in low light conditions, at…"

"No amount of money will make up for those injuries! Pity too, 3rd party only comes out of a pool rather than directed at the perpetrator. Would seem Trivetts encourages recklessness on public roads with waves of cars given the chance to turn up the…"

"Thanks for the update Bill, what an amazing positive outlook. Question : Is he taking this to the civil court for loss of income? A multi million payout case will do more for safety than any of the hollow words and lack - of - action from our…"

"Agree with the weird car ad feel of that crime report. I understand that the rest was satire, but I do feel the need to point out that Subaru Australia has been a great supporter and sponsor of cycling in our country."
