I was reading this story on the news this morning about cyclists and their injuries, all caused by a lack of sharing apparently.
That’s right folks, cyclists should not have to share their bike paths with slow moving unregistered pedestrians. It causes accidents! This reminds me of another argument that goes along the lines of car [...]

Permanent traffic monitoring in roadwork zones
Well, once again, here we are talking about the traffic congestion on Gundaroo Drive which runs past the suburb of Crace.

He was of middle eastern appearance and would have [...]

Do I deserve ‘the finger’ while driving the speed limit on right hand lane of Belconnen Way at 5.15pm

When I was coming to work this morning, I had a crazy lady behind me speeding and yelling abuse, weaving in and out of traffic. I gave her the finger which I guess just made her a little bit crankier. She blew her horn all the way down the parkway and would not overtake me. She [...]
