DAN­GER­OUS CHOICE

The Courier-Mail - - LETTERS -

GOOD to know the laws re­gard­ing lane fil­ter speeds and road shoul­der use for mo­tor­bike riders, as re­vealed by colum­nist Marg Wen­ham ( C-M, Apr 18). Ap­par­ently, bike riders who choose to lane fil­ter on Kingston Rd don’t know the 30km/h speed limit for do­ing so. They are also un­aware that no roads in the area have speed lim­its of 90km/h or more, which would al­low them to ride on road shoul­ders. Note to bikers: Car driv­ers are boxed in steel while you just have the clothes and any pro­tec­tive gear you are wear­ing. It seems like a deadly choice as you speed be­tween cars, buses and trucks.
