"Ingham Ave and Fairlight St is also very dangerous, too tight for a car and bike to safely approach (up the hill on ingham heading west). Cars turning across you from ingham into Farlight and out of Fairlight L & R in front of you.  It…"

"Arthur and First. When you are on Arthur, it's very hard to see them coming from the right as there is a big hedge, and they are usually coming quickly. My roundabout strategy is to get into the middle and stand up, ie make myself more visible,…"
