SAPOL Traffic Thursday

I was interested to hear on the radio this morning that SAPOL were going to start their first ever Traffic Thursday!To quote their posting:Police will have an eagle eye out for motorists failing to keep left on multi-lane roads. Keeping left is essential to the safe, efficient flow of traffic.You would have to question if this is the most pressing issue on our roads at the minute.On the way home tonight I was on the corner of Bartels Road and Dequetteville Terrace, on the parklands side waiting…See More

Michael replied to Stig of The Dump's discussion bike stuff at Aldi soon
"I picked up a set at Aldi Hawthorn tonight. Not a huge number left I must say .... perhaps 4 or 5. I have compared them to my original Lezyne ones and they do appear to be a cheap knock off. It seems as if they have basically cut as many corners as…"

Michael replied to Stig of The Dump's discussion bike stuff at Aldi soon
"Yep they look similar but definitely a knockoff. I still think they would work well for a 5 year old. I like the idea that he thinks lights are a good idea from an early age. He has also put an order in for saddle bag .... so he can carry stuff."

Michael replied to Stig of The Dump's discussion bike stuff at Aldi soon
"The bike lights look very similar to the Lezyne ones that I have (and paid considerably more for). Being USB chargeable I was thinking of getting a set for my 5 year old to try out."

"Is it true that certain ACC Councilors are now seeking public consultation from outside the Council boundary in a desperate attempt to find enough people to support the removal and reinstatement of 4 traffic lanes? ;)"

Michael replied to Ruddager's discussion The signals are on at Porter street
"Cool .... now we can expect SAPOL to be hanging around to issue fines to appease the motorists who have had to wait because cyclists have taken advantage of a break in traffic (like the old days) instead of waiting for the lights."
