Has anyone else come across a roo on the freeway down track only 1km down from the Crafers bollards?
I side-swiped him (or her) a couple of weeks back and it scared me half to death and caused my ankle a bit of grief. The following morning it was there again but this time on the far side of the road.
Today, yet again, at about 6.15am the roo shuffled out of the way as I rapidly braked.
Be careful... it's a marsupial jungle out there.
And koalas, echidnas, deer (so close I could have smacked them with my hand on the ascent), rabbits and foxes.
Dogs being walked without leads are the most dangerous near the top though!
I have seen kangaroos as well I would think that during the bright part of the day the problem would be less
Add to the warning list:
Joggers with headphones, walkers with dogs on 4-5m long leads, a motor scooter (up near the bollards- he should have a fair idea I didn't approve) and long-board skaters (usually weekends and later in the day)
If you get the rego of a motorised vehicle on a shared path or cycle path, you can report to SAPOL on 131 444.
The point of this would be what? A conviction can't be secured based purely on he said/she said testimony.
SAPOL will contact the owner, tell them that a member of the public has reported / alleged, and remind them of the law. This might be enough to get the person to re-think. If enough reports from the public, the police consider other action.
In 2011 AC members noted feral deer on the Mt Barker Road, Measdays Hill. See http://www.adelaidecyclists.com/forum/topics/feral-deer-mt-barker-r... When I reported this to DTEI, reply that signs 'WILDLIFE' would be installed by the end of Sep-2011.
Seen them near the old service stations on eagle on the hill....4 of them came bouncing over the fence and across the road in front of me.
