Motorists would not endanger peoples lives if police acted on complaints. Jim ffld Potholes. If 4WD stopped ploughing and bashing through them and took a bit more care on the roads the holes would not get so big so fast. Go bush if u want 2 dig up the tracks and leave the streets 2 us car and motor bike user who value our normal suspension. How hard it it 2 drive around not though a small hole? But wait if u have a 4WD u just smash through it till it becomes a huge dangerous hole. Common sense, not so common any more. Mum 4815 To the people in the car at the intersection between Stockland and Centro 09/ 03 – 3 things. 1. I admit my music was loud, and when we heard the ambulance sirens it was late, thank you for telling us it was behind us. I couldn’t see it. Sincerely thanks. 2. I was yelling thank you to you after. Sorry if the wind distorted that. 3. While I’m sure others have given you reason to, and unless the wind distorted you, you didn’t have to scream profanities at us. We were genuinely trying to move out of the way. You seem like a good person. Don’t ruin it with foul language like that. But thank you still. E Kelso Re TTC worker; how about the potholes in the car park on Flinders Street East, they have been there for almost a year but then again that’s how long it takes for u guys to figure out how to fill in a pothole, get it fixed now, and if u don’t know how to fix it here’s a suggestion-rip it all up and relay it with bitumen or the cement they used to do the crossings on Flinders Street East that seems to last a while. TJ. Townsville city. 4810 I just repeated my little observation exercise from a few weeks ago – this time out of 25 cars passing the house, 6 were texting ( the tradie pulling the trailer was all over the road), 2 were talking with mobile to ear and one girl was brushing her hair!

AJJW Mt Low Re ‘‘ Cycle rage on our roads’’ ( TB 10.3.2011) Cyclists have to remember, the road rules for cyclists, are the same as for licensed drivers, yet in all my years of biking, I’ve seen cyclists break every rule in the book, these are the ones that draw the ire of motorists, and so the lawabiding cyclist also cops it. I’ve found, if you play it straight, stick to the rules, and ride well within the bike lanes, you should have nothing to fear from the big bad motorist, he’s not out to get you, unless you do something stupid, . . .
