The ABC has the rivetting news that research from the University of Canberra’s Ruth Wright has found that in the cyclist-driver flame wars some people are just wankers.
The study by the University of Canberra identified both drivers and cyclists who think they have a greater right to the space on the road, and drive or ride accordingly.
“There seems to be a sense of entitlement to the road and to the road space amongst Canberra drivers,” she said.
“The other thing we’re getting a sense of, is there’s possible clashing senses of entitlement amongst different groups of road users.”
But apparently her findings support funding more research in this area, didn’t see that one coming.
