Chris replied to kerry's discussion Accident
"Fair point. The rider made a mistake, for which he, his family and friends have paid a high price. In an ideal world drivers, especially of heavy vehicles, would slow down and check before turning across a busy path. I think this crash was avoidable."

Chris replied to kerry's discussion Accident
"This tragic incident highlights a grey area in the NSW road rules. There is a convention in the rules that a turning vehicle gives way to any vehicle or pedestrian going straight on. Specifically, when turning into or out from a side road, you…"

Chris replied to Pooliothrvwganster1's discussion Pacific Highway is to lose a car lane and covert to a bike lane
"When the Warringah Freeway opened, traffic on this short section of Pacific Highway dropped overnight by 40%. The freeway did what it was meant to do: it diverted traffic away from the North Sydney CBD, significantly reducing air pollution, noise…"

Martyn P replied to Chris's discussion Police ambushes - early warning
"The magic hat law is certainly trivial and banal compared to the discrimination of a large portion of a population based on skin colour. I don't dispute the validity of disobedience as a method of protest but I don't think the relative…"

"Cycling is not who I am, it is a means of recreation, transport and fitness all of which can and be substituted with other things. Rosa Parks' black skin did not allow her this freedom (at the time, and would only debatably now). It invaded…"

Colin replied to Chris's discussion Police ambushes - early warning
"Why do you dislike the Rosa Parks comparison? Is it because you believe: disobedience is only valid when the law in question is extreme (like racially discriminatory laws), rather than banal (like the helmet law)? such comparisons play badly in the…"

Kathy Francis replied to Chris's discussion Police ambushes - early warning
"I don't think Chris was trying to compare anyone to Rosa Parks. He was simply pointing out that breaking a law is not  always morally wrong. Nor does it always lead to a loss of respect from other people. Fortunately, human beings have a…"

Kathy Francis replied to Chris's discussion Police ambushes - early warning
