Please pick up the threads in aus.cars if you want to comment.
They have just done this to death over there and trolling out of boredom.

It's probably more relevant to require a licence to change a bike tyre. T.

Must be a full moon 2UE has been pushing all afternoon ( and Duncan
grey) for license and fluoro jacket with a number on the back.
They wish to sound a death Knell for cycling.
The cycle use would drop dramatically,There is not a hope in hades that
I would wear a fluoro jacket with a number, I would just never ride a
bicycle again.
Same with mandated clothing for my motorcycle I would just have to cease
riding.
They have already knobbled cycle use with mandated helmets (which some
think good) but bicycle use dropped when it was introduced, if they
mandate fluoro jackets with numbers on the back only the yuppy lycra
crowd would still cycle.

So you don't wear a helmet when riding your motorcycle?

If that's true it just shows how dumb most cyclists are.

I do but It is not fluoro and it is a single item, totally different to
mandated clothing

It is just what would happen.
Just wait an see, (if they are stupid enough to mandate fluoro vests
with a number on the back.)

Why is it stupid?
Are seat belts in cars and helmets for motorcycles stupid?
Cyclists have zero protection and are often difficult to see, better to
be seen than dead or seriously injured.
With a visible number cyclists could be identified when they break the
road rules, couldn't have cyclists obey the road now could we.

You keep bringing in motor cycle helmets and seat belts which are a
different kettle of fish and I am not discussing them.

Cyclists have zero protection and are often difficult to see, better to
be seen than dead or seriously injured.
With a visible number cyclists could be identified when they break the
road rules, couldn't have cyclists obey the road now could we.


Most ordinary people look at these things like lights on, fluro clothing
etc because their mind thinks that it would fix things because it sounds
to them so sensible that it would fix things which is not necessarily
the case statistically

Lights on frinstance has for and against studies, Long term usually against.
When you mandate lights on,at first stats drop but soon resume the same
or worse stats as before
have not looked at fluoro vest studies yet.
Just look at reversing beepers, when only a few trucks had them they
worked well but as they become more prolific the brain starts to ignore
them as they are so common and they do not have the same effect as they
once did,same with lights on and probably fluoro vests.
Maybe Paul can come up with the west aus stats on injuries prevented
after the introduction of bicycle helmets and the effect on bicycle use
after the introduction

If you insist on riding a pushbike on busy roads, you should have an ace of
spades on your back and a will in your pocket.
