    How about taking drone pics of accident scenes also take regular pics marking out vehicle location, something to speed up the process, this is 2023 holding up commuters for so long is unacceptable & frustrating in this day and age. Come on get with it.

    Textbook. What does the motoring public have to do? Put speed bumps everywhere? We see a lot of rogue cyclists and some of them are even lady cyclists. Yesterday witnessed a male cyclist overtaking on that wide bend by the Baileys Bay railway. The guy was sooo low leaning around our car, we could barely see him! And this was a young male in student uniform. Stop throwing your lives away! You are not indestructible. THINK before you overtake blind corners.

      The suggestions of the road (they can no longer be called “rules”) do not apply to motorcycles or auxiliary cycles. They haven’t for years.

      Even cars and trucks are now ignoring the suggestions of the road, traffic signs and traffic lights. I was nearly hit a few days ago by a driving instruction vehicle running a red light in town (with only one person in the car).

    Look, some of these guys have a death wish and ride like idiots. I respect their death wish and wish them luck with accomplishing their goal. However, I wish there was a way that they only kill themselves, not innocent bystanders who value their lives.
