James Mahon replied to Keen Cyclist's discussion Threatened by Fastway Courier
"Definitely flag it with Fastway, and report it to Police. This guy drives for a living, with his attitude it is only time before he actually hits someone, and his driving history might be the difference when it comes to guilt/sentencing. JM"

James Mahon replied to Bob Moore's discussion Homebush Bay Walking and Cycling Circuit
"Lights. Sections are pitch dark and other sections dimly lit. That and they need to build the paths a lot wider, build for the projected population not the current population. The recent Bayrun 'upgrade' has provided for too narrow a…"

"Pedestrian complains about almost being hit by person on a bicycle - NSW Police are on the job! (also recently happened at pedestrian crossing in Five Dock). Bike riders hit by motorist, caught on cam, nothing... That section of Anzac Bridge is a…"

James Mahon replied to Dan's discussion RIP dockless bike share
"It really is quite sad. Damning indictment on Australia. I wonder if there is some kind of index that measures this type of thing? I imagine a country like Japan or Singapore would rank fairly high whereas we would be down with the battlers. Earth…"

"Hi There, I was fined on my cycle at 6.45 am this morning at the same notorious intersection, turning left into Kevin Coombes Drive coming off Australia Avenue. The police motorcyclist was hidden behind the seating shelter on the corner of the same…"

James Mahon replied to noelbike's discussion Who is for and who is against lower speed limits in Sydney?
"Fewer zones - and the zones need to be coloured or some such consistent continuous marks so you know what the max limit is. People also need training about speed. Part of the driving test should involve standing in the middle of the road whilst a…"

James Mahon replied to Tim's discussion The NSW Budget
"Please. Whingers. Look on the bright side: Free car registration if you drive lots on privately owned toll roads. PLUS Reduced parking fines for reasons! NSW desperately needs more people driving and leaving their cars places. JM"

"yep, saw them book people, 6 to 6.30, probably doing unregistered car stuff, easy catch, they were gone by 7, so they must've gone to the annual prayer gathering next door in Bicentennial park - for Eid. Any presence out there is good as…"

Peter Robinson replied to James Mahon's discussion Sydney Olympic Park - Morning Laps & Stop Signs
"you sure they were booking cars? they were in odd positions. One on the footpath as people turned off Australia ave before the railway bridge, and two more in the entrance to bicentennial park. I figured there must have been some VIP event in there."

James Mahon replied to JimmyH's discussion The high cost of the useless Moore Park cycle bridge
"Was it fully paid out of cycling budget? I thought it was - and yet Cyclists Dismount signs displayed in the photo... Too funny. NSW Government is sounding a lot like Auburn Council used to sound like. Corrupt and clueless. JM"

James Mahon replied to PeterT's discussion About time the lack of enforcement MHL made the news
"The whole thing is just so crazy. You can tell from some of the comments people don't fully comprehend the real issues. Road safety is not common sense apparently. The one sided view from motorists needs to be challenged by politicians, police…"

"I lost my front on Conti GPS4000 on wet polished concrete then switched to Maxxis Refuse and stuck with them. Two front flats from thin bits of wire in 20,000 kms of mostly commuting. Every now and then I pick the glass out of them. I do swap the…"
