"No requirement to use, only to have. Just like a horn on a car. And I'm with you Neil. I prefer to have full control dealing with pedestrians than try and ding the bell."

"Does the bell law require you to use the bell at all? As I have said to the odd pedestrian, usually wandering randomly on a shared or even not-shared path, who has told me that "You are legally required to have a bell, you know":…"

"I was wondering that since Bell laws predate headphones, does the current bell law legally require the person  to hear the bell ? I use my bell but I don't expect the people to hear it ...and an AirZound would be too scary."

"I ask Bicycle NSW, what is being done to introduce close passing operations by the Nsw Police as has and is being done in the U.K.? How many NSW cyclists will be killed, maimed or terrorised before careless and in some cases, malicious drivers are…"

"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…"

"That is a little surprising to me. I mean... I have a bell, but I don't remember when was the last time I have used it, really. "

"From the data I've seen, not having a bell is 17 times more dangerous than close passes.  Why else would riding without a bell have incurred 17 times the number of fines than close passes"

"Yes. If the plod is 1.8m tall then his arm span is 1.8m. Allowing 0.3m from the centre of bike to end of handlebars, then you have a 1.5m safe passing distance. Its a pretty good rule of thumb I think! And very impressed with the undercover…"

"Yeah they should definitely speak about it. Simon Castle is right that this is about public safety. London police is doing a good job."

"Apparently the West Midlands police have studied the Killed & Seriously Injured (KSI) collision data and have found that: ...in the majority of KSI collisions, cyclists aren’t to blame, concluding “… it would be a waste of…"

"One of the NSW police excuses that I've heard for them not enforcing the metre matters rule is that they can't reliably determine the distances. Obviously the poms can. This suggests that they employ people with a higher intellect than NSW…"

Dabba replied to Scott McLeod's discussion I wonder if NSW Police will ever do this too.....
"Just sent this off to my state MP (ALP). -------------------------- We have spoken before about the poor attitude of NSW Police towards the protection of cyclists. In particular their lack of enforcement of the 1 or 1.5 metre clearance that motor…"
