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

"Obviously some bad ones there, but I'm genuinely unsure who is meant to give way in a left turn situation, like 0:59 and 1:18. If it was a painted on-road bike lane, I believe the answer is the bicycle gives way, because the car can…"

"As I said back on page 1, there's a bit of an art to bell ringing - you need to be far enough back to not spook them, but not so far that they don't hear. Your "ringing but from way back" sounds about right."

Peter B replied to Henry's discussion Bicycle lane question
"Are you sure it's as low as $57, Dave? I can't find the reference but I thought the maximum fine for a cyclist was higher than that. I hope you're right, but I have a suspicion it's higher, though not as high as $400+."
