Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

OUR river­side man­sion dwelling re­tirees seem to have plenty of time to sit around mak­ing up facts that suit them.

Whether a par­tic­u­lar plant block­ing their view is a na­tive or a weed, or what time ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing cy­clists oc­cur seem to oc­cupy their time.

In re­sponse to Frank Granger, who claimed that cy­clists should not be al­lowed on the road in the dark, per­haps if he cared to look at the facts he would dis­cover that 80 per cent of ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing bikes oc­cur dur­ing day­light hours.

I feel much safer cy­cling on the road than a shared path with our young and old, dogs, and fam­i­lies with prams de­spite the im­pa­tience of peo­ple like Frank. SHANNON HUGH, Bic­ton
