Shar­ing our roads

Townsville Bulletin - - Text The Editor -

Cy­clist 4817! Just stay off the line! Get in the the bike lane, you know the one with the pic­ture of a bike. I’ve got a lot more to say to your smart mouth that wouldn’t make it into the pa­per. Mark G Bush­land Beach. Dear Cy­clist 4817, when I had driv­ing lessons not once was I in­formed that I have to change lanes to go around the cy­clist. Not once! Don’t cre­ate your own road rules and stick to the bike lanes. SMB. To all cy­clists and low-pow­ered m/ bikes, if you ac­tu­ally rode com­pletely in the lane you would not con­fuse driv­ers and put lives at risk, get in the lane or get out but don’t ride on the white line and then com­plain about near misses. Kris Mt Louisa KG, of course u have ev­ery right 2 be hos­tile, ura red­neck fool like ev­ery­one else who can’t share the road legally like ev­ery­one else can man­age 2 do, we ride in the early hours 2 get away from peo­ple like u, fair enough a few cy­clists are idiots & need 2 wake up, but be care­ful be­cause some cy­clists do not tol­er­ate crap. Dou­glas. 4814 To KG: Last time you checked, mo­tor ve­hi­cles ‘‘ con­trib­ute’’ to the road? You are liv­ing in a fan­tasy. All the cy­clists I know own cars and pay rego and fuel taxes. We ride for fun. Next thing you will be com­plain­ing about those pesky pedes­tri­ans that cross the road with­out pay­ing. Cy­clist 4814. On the cy­clist is­sue doesn’t mat­ter who is in the wrong u hit a cy­clist and they’re dead. Pe­riod. I ride and drive use ur un­com­mon sense, King Brown, Aitken­vale

To cy­clist 4817 if rid­ing your bike else­where is so good maybe u should move there and u’ll be sweet. Doesn’t mat­ter what time of day it is roads are for cars bike lanes for bikes. Tony
