James Mahon replied to Jim Frech's discussion Won't someone think of the children?
"Just suspend MHL enforcement and see how it goes. If cyclists start dropping like flies with serious head injuries bring it back. I can't understand why this is so hard. Try things. If they don't work try something else. JM"

James Mahon replied to Bill Parker's discussion Duncan Gay takes job with transport consultancy
"I should of specified. His political clout and connections are completely useless in improving transport outcomes. They will further the agenda of the muppets who are now paying him. I was musing the other day about Parramatta Road being turned into…"

James Mahon replied to Jon's discussion Bike or food
"You have to drive to a safe place to ride bicycles - time to move. Food and bicycles in equal measure for me and mine. Although my wife does not ride, kids are mad about bikes.  The only requirement when we got a house was rideability - there…"

James Mahon replied to Bill Parker's discussion Duncan Gay takes job with transport consultancy
"According to the SMH article the other day nothing has changed in relation to truck safety. The fiery crash in Mona Vale was supposed to be the catalyst for change but too hard. The stats show trucks make up a small percentage of traffic but are in…"

James Mahon replied to PeterT's discussion Bicycle NSW BUGs promotion on FB
"I have no words. Black socks, black shoes - how can this bunch be taken seriously? BNSW needs to lift their game, it is not hard. Plenty of bunches out there actually abide by the rules. Also that road surface would be harsh on vittoria graphene GPS…"

James Mahon replied to Bill Parker's discussion Duncan Gay takes job with transport consultancy
"Setting aside his unique lack of qualifications for the role, what action can be taken to get the super/pension politician entitlement down to 9.5% in line with peasants like us? It would make for a popular change.org petition but I am guessing the…"

James Mahon replied to PeterT's discussion Violent road-rage incident erupts between driver and cyclist in Summer Hill, 6 Sep 2017
"I was thinking reading comments on Facebook that if the attacker did not make the appalling racist comments people would be more "on the fence" about the incident aka what did the bike rider do to provoke the lovely driver. Motorists…"

James Mahon replied to PeterT's discussion Violent road-rage incident erupts between driver and cyclist in Summer Hill, 6 Sep 2017
"Yes. I am also expecting they will put bollards across the road so vehicles can not kill people there. Like the ones they bolted onto Pyrmont Footbridge, I've seen similar bollards give way to cars parking, so I think it is more window dressing…"

James Mahon replied to PeterT's discussion Why cops much rather pick on cyclists
"Why would anyone stand in front of a motor vehicle, especially one that is speeding? It really reinforces my belief that the so called road safety experts (Police) are clueless when it comes to road safety. JM"

James Mahon replied to John Knight's discussion Mike Hall
"I am not sure - but I think in more high profile cases the Police might hold back until they are 100% sure they are on the right track. It would be nice to at least have them say they are working on it, maybe release some preliminary findings…"

James Mahon replied to noelbike's discussion Bicycle sales slump in Australia
"Population density is making public spaces more crowded. Kids learning to cycle near where I live are often competing with other path users and it is stressful for everyone. I've seen kids dive off bikes when a dog comes up sniffing, or even…"

James Mahon replied to John Knight's discussion Oh dear - Brisbane this morning
"On a stretch of road that cyclists hardly ever use. By hardly ever I mean all the time. Loving the comment at the end of one of the articles saying that cyclists speed down the road all the time and that it was an accident waiting to…"

James Mahon replied to Bill Parker's discussion Sydney Bike Share Scheme starts July 2017 ("6000 bikes within 6 months")
"The red bikes are light years ahead of the hire "bikes" that are available for hourly rent within SOP from that kiosk/shop.  I was very impressed with how bright the front light is in daylight - a quick head check picks it up loud and…"

James Mahon replied to jrjr's discussion Tree pruning request being ignored - Norman St Concord (next to golf course)
"Awesome work. On another note did cycling advocates get anywhere with how dangerous the roundabout/Bayrun on ramp is at the end of Arthur Street? A truck pulled out of Henley Marine Drive turning right into Timbrell Drive this morning, I had just…"

"I had perfect chance to use it Saturday - had to go from Town Hall down to Crown Street (Bar Reggio - piza still awesome). But helmets. So I walked there and back - late home. But helmets. Other issues: I think I need to reinstall ReddyGo so it…"
