"I'd say that a lot of other countries look after their wild life better than Australia looks after cyclists. A conundrum in the land where OHSW regulation is a corporate religion that often is allowed to stay in the way of common sense."

"It.... is.... a..... bike lane.... Other countries and cities started doing these nearly 50 years ago and have hundreds of kilometers of them now and are creating more of them every bloody day . How come it is so difficult to do in Adelaide.…"

"But car transport expenses, like CTP insurance and licenses, have also gone up, so it's not as if public transport has been singled out. Given some of the spending, I think public transport has done ok (not brilliant, but ok) from the budget."

"If you compare to Sydney and some US cities then you are probably right, but I don't understand why Adelaide/Australia constantly compares against be bottom. Perhaps Adelaide should have looked elsewhere when the MATS plan was ditched and…"

Bill Gehling replied to Ken the Dane's discussion Where are you Adelaide?
"Actually Ken, the 60 kph roads with 20+ signals works rather better than you credit for a number of reasons. 30 minutes to cross a city by car is not bad by any standards. While the lights can be a pain, they regulate traffic into platoons with…"

"I think Adelaide has developed just fine into a disaster for automobiles even without MATS, but perhaps (most probable) the disaster would have been greater with it. Unfortunately now is it bike unfriendly AND it takes half an hour on 60 kph roads…"

Bill Gehling replied to Ken the Dane's discussion Where are you Adelaide?
"Looking through the list of 20 cities, all seem to have gone through the experience of trying to appease the automobile, but have realised after wasting a lot of money that it was never going to work for them. Fortunately or otherwise, Adelaidians…"

Hi Kenneth and welcome to Look For Cyclists and Vote For Cyclists. This week I added to the former under 'How to design for cyclists' and 'How NOT to design for cyclists'. Notice in your photo that you have young children, plus a cargo bike. There is an AC group for parents with children, also cargo and utility cycling. Cheers, Heather
