Today's Sunday Mail (25/10/2015) on page 7 refers to cyclists not using bike lanes.
The article has a photo with it with a caption
“BRAKING THE LAW: Cyclist ride outside the bike lane along Military road Tennyson, yesterday morning”
While it would be difficult to tell the time from the photo it seems reasonable that for a Sunday paper yesterday would mean Saturday.
The only problem is that the sign in the photo clearly states the there is only a bike lane on weekdays in the morning and afternoon for a few hours.
So what law was being broken as there is no bike lane?
I suppose I would be accused of excessive optimism to hope for some sort of retraction and perhaps an information article explaining how bike lanes work (or in this case don't exist).
Does anyone know why the original recommendation of having to leave 1 mtr outside of a cycle lane was changed?
or perhaps i just misread the citizens jury recommendations.
I'm reasonably sure it's 1m/1.5m from the rightmost point of the cyclist regardless of the lane situation.
yeah it is now,
However i am almost certain that's not what the citizens jury asked for.. I was told that the 1 mtr rule was for roads that didn't contain a bike lane.. I may be wrong, i can't seem to find the link i read it on
Perhaps the problem was the bits of road that have bike lanes that are barely a bike wide ? It is going to be confusing for drivers though I think.
