Congestion in Tassie, yeh right!
Good to hear they've made it legal I suppose,
have always and will always do it, legal or otherwise.
Always better off been in the m/c lane at the lights
than getting rear ended by some inattentive fuckwit on their phone.
Thanks for the heads-up BD. What a great move forward.
You might be surprised Vic. Hobart has turned into a traffic quagmire over the last 20 odd years. The town is growing fast and the roads are the original ones from the 1800's, suitable for the odd horse and cart and a few pedestrians. Also the town planners(if there are any) have been asleep for years and it is actually a cunt of a city to get around most of the time normal people commute.
Looking forward to the new filtering laws....being legal.
So, we're a week into the new lane filtering laws here in Tassie and I'm yet to see any 'public education blitz'.
Infact, I'm yet to see anything at all in the media apart from the death toll attributed to motorcyclists and several motorcycling group spokespeople pushing for an 'older riders refresher course'.
They have been plugging it a Lot on the radio Roo
WTF... Older refresher rider course, you have got to be kidding me! How do they think we got to be alive after over 40 years of riding motorcycles. FFSake...
Just as an aside, you may find the odd law on your Northern Territory equivalent of murder .Pretty sure old plod could find it if he removed his head from his arse long enough!
Another problem (I encountered yesterday) was when a fuckwit tradie in a parked ute accidently opened his driver's door without looking into the path of my bike.Insurance claim in progress .Lucky my 420 kg pig mangled his open door and I wasn't on a pushbike!
