"Likewise with train drivers and plane operators. The responsibility and the punishments generally increase as the consequences of mistakes get more severe.
But for some reason the Victorian cycling advocacy group BNV thought cyclists and…"
I'm debating that if bicycles should have the same fine as cars then cars should have the same fine as trucks.
I wonder what those calling for bicycle and car fine matching would think about car and truck fine matching"
"Good that someone is pointing out the foolishness of draconian fines, and the even greater stupidity of advocating that acceptance of big fines equates to improved rights. WTF.
My own 2c, again, is that big fines invite non-compliance. Don't…"
The problem with the Terror is that they make shit up. Last year they were telling their readers cyclists were on the road illegally, as in compulsory to use shared paths & cycleways.
Currently they tell their readers there are 10…"
"There is really very little point responding to these things rational arguments. It is not rational to solve problems largely invented by a newspaper, with increased fines which can't be enforced and no one will pay (other than out helmet free…"

I just saw weiyun's comment, re the DHBC web site layout in Safari, that he added to the Bitten discussion. I was wondering why he put it there. Ideally an issue like that would be communicated to the DHBC webmaster (you?) through the DHBC web site.
If I could make a suggestion. Many sites have links in the site's footer that are not specifically related to the topic of the site but rather to the construction and management of the site. I couldn't see that at the DHBC website (using Firefox on a mac). The "contact us" link on the side menu seemed to be for messages to the club secretary who, I expect, is more concerned about running the club than running the web site.
On Sydney Cyclist, for example, the footer contains a link to "Report an Issue". Other sites often have a "Webmaster" link or similar that will allow the user to send a direct message to the webmaster.
A link like that on the DHBC site would allow web site users (members or not) to have the option to report issues or suggestions for improvement directly to the people who would be most interested.
