The Australian Road Rules 187(2) make it an offence to stop in a bicycle lane. On the Duthy Street bicycle lane (door lane), the layout means that trucks, fat SUVs and badly parked cars often sit…Continue

"I also agree a rounabout is an aweful soluton. I live 100m from Sheoak / Old Belair intersection and am generally held up by those trying to avoid James road and turn right from sheoak (again what Henry describes in reverse). A friend suggested an…"

"But the same already happens, in reverse. I used to live in Glenalta, and the quickest way down the hill should have been a left turn onto Upper Sturt Road and then go down James Road. But I didn't, because James Road traffic was always banked…"

"And therefore increase the traffic down Laffers Rd (past a school) and Sheoak Rd (past a pre-school and another school) so that cars get onto James Rd for priority at the roundabout."

Matt S replied to Keith's discussion Blackwood roundabout
"A roundabout at that location would be a very silly idea. I drove that way to work for 20 years and I know that in peak hour my preferred route was down James road because you could always count on cars letting you in. So, a dedicated roundabout…"

Keith replied to burley's discussion Mitcham BUG - Who's interested?
"Absolutely. I was actually thinking of a Mitcham and Hills BUG, but a much better solution is me supporting someone else organising it."

"Would have been ideal for trips in the city on the days I hadn't brought my bike. Another casualty of the lack of proper joined up separated bike lanes, and helmet laws."

Keith replied to Henry's discussion Bicycle lane question
"Strictly it's not a bike lane outside of the stated hours, but part of the driving lane. The magic paint isn't magic during that time."

Keith replied to Peter B's discussion Is it legal to ride on the footpath when there is a bicycle lane present?
"I would complain about the caution. SAPOL has followed up with me in a case of being wrong on legislation rather than an arsey judgement call. For reference, here's the extract from the South Australia Australian Road Rules: Regulation…"

"I sometimes use it on the trip home to Belair, to avoid the King W door zone run you get at rush hour. The crappy Cross Rd options are the bigger problem with that route tho."
