Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

Re­fer­ring to ‘‘ Make that five’’ (Letters, Fe­bru­ary 20), yes it would be good to have un­lim­ited funds to spend on the Cook High­way, how­ever it is dis­turb­ing that the con­trib­u­tor was ag­gra­vated at the al­lo­ca­tion of funds to save the lives of cy­clists by im­prov­ing safety at round­abouts and was also ag­gra­vated at the use of the Cook High­way by cy­clists. Pub­lic roads are open to all road users, in­clud­ing slow ve­hi­cles such as trac­tors, cane haulers and bi­cy­cles. Any­thing that can be done to save the lives of road users is im­por­tant and worth­while. When next pass­ing a cy­clist please re­mem­ber that per­son is some­body’s fa­ther, mother or child. If you have to slow down in or­der to pass when it is safe, please do not de­spair as your de­lay will only take a few mo­ments and your pa­tience and cour­tesy may well save a life. As a cy­clist I greatly ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that mo­torists give me plenty room when pass­ing me on the roads. Thank you for your tol­er­ance and con­sid­er­a­tion.
