Jim Frech replied to Scott McLeod's discussion I wonder if NSW Police will ever do this too.....
"When that a******e Duncan Gay hiked the fines the mendacious bastard justified them by saying they were only being introduced for the safety cyclists. There have been 17 times the number of bell fines as there have been close pass fines, QED (using…"

Jim Frech replied to Neil Alexander's discussion Influencing the policies of political parties*

"So the police were out to get me and it wasn't just me being paranoid. FFS - what else can be said about this insanity? (And it is insane - the attack on bicycle riding in Australia is a mass hysteria - a very bad one)."

Jim Frech replied to Scientia et Labore's discussion Study about bad attitude
"Pretty much sums up the human condition. "The meek shall inherent the earth" but only if they get the reins of power and double down with the hatred and spite that they've learnt from being downtrodden by blindly seeking revenge on…"

"If the driver was injured or the cyclist wasn't wearing a helmet it would have made front page Terrorgraph news. "Criminal helmetless cyclist smashes innocent motorist's vehicle". Commander Ploddy McPlodface of the North Shore…"

Jim Frech replied to Snowy_5's discussion Cyclists using mobile phones in Victoria to face $476 fine from July
"So are Bicycle Queensland implying that cheap AS/NZS 2063 helmets aren't safe? Or are they suggesting that bicycle food delivery riders should wear proper helmets (motorcycle helmets) not the foam hats we are all forced to wear?"

Jim Frech replied to JimmyH's discussion 2017 NSW Budget - anything for cycling?
"Hard to do an apples to apples comparison but if $62,000,000 of the $73,000,000,000 infrastructure budget is earmarked for "active" transport - Tibby Cotter bridge anyone? - then only $72,938,000,000 is left to be spent on motorways."
