Since this has happened for a few other councils... has anyone done any research on the candidates for Marion Council elections, regarding their policies on cycling?Continue

Fooled by the weather radar

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jilden May 30. 10 Replies

Tonight a glance at weather radar looked all clear (very much like this screenshot from after I got home). But it had me fooled, and it steadily drizzled pretty well all the way home. So does rain…Continue

Is it legal to ride on the footpath when there is a bicycle lane present?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Keith Apr 24. 4 Replies

The question says it all! Today a police officer cautioned me. (He said this applies to footpaths, not shared paths).I tried to politely say that isn't how I'd seen the law presented, but I let it go…Continue

Peter B replied to Jim Saunders's discussion South Road Bicycle Lanes??
"Wow, with all that space between the footpath and the road, surely something more could be done. For instance, even a ramp up onto the footpath would be better than nothing. But there should easily be room for the bike lane to continue straight…"

Peter B replied to Nathan Adams's discussion Helmets that meet AS/NZA 2063 standard, but don't have sticker. OK?
"Can you quote the relevant phrase or sentence? Maybe I'm missing something, I can't see any mention of the sticker there. (And I think Nathan couldn't find it either, hence his question)."

Peter B replied to Savvas's discussion Rising cyclist death toll is mainly due to drivers...
"I have two problems with that article. First, cyclist deaths are not surging; they are more or less constant. A statistical anomaly is being mistaken for a trend. Second, more significantly, I found their dismissal of infrastructure very…"

Peter B replied to Equal2lance2's discussion Is it a Bike lane?
"It's in the Australian Road Rules (that the word "LANE" can be painted on the road) so I suspect it's been law ever since the ARR were adopted. It's certainly there in my downloaded version of the SA rules in 2014."

""Longer to activate" is an issue in an emergency, but coming up behind a pedestrian is not an emergency, in fact one usually has several seconds to choose exactly the time to ring. And for me at least, the bell has 3 advantages over my…"
