Default Talkback one eyed lunatics

I do not know If any one has heard 2UE afternoon talkback, think his
name is Justin smith,on the subject of bicycle rider registration, he
seems manic on the subject and howls down anyone who has an opposite
view to his, he seems to have the opinion that it is a foregone
conclusion that we will have rider registration by the end of the year.
He seems to have Duncan Gay (roads minister)on his side.
He also has the opinion that bicycle ordinations should not be allowed
representation at the soon to be,round table group on the subject with
Duncan Gay because "they are going to say no to everything".
His idea is registration of rider not bicycle with mandated fluoro
jackets with number on the back.

We would then be the only place in the world with it.
It would almost mean the death knell for cycle riding.
He has a bee in his bonnet about insurance associated with license,which
would in my opinion eventually make the license fee expensive which is
the case of all mandated insurance since the beginning of time.
He would be better served to get government paid cover for the minute
cases of third party claims against bicycles.(every so often a bicycle
knocks some one down injuring and even killing where the victim has no
cover and can not identify the culprit)
It is not worth registration just for revenge against the rider,it is
better to cover the third party through special govt.paid insurance and
would be much cheaper than an other licensing monolith.
It would mean that I would never ride again as it is rare that I do and
would not be worth it (I sometimes take train with bicycle to the city
or places like Gosford for use at the other end)

Going to be fun seeing that when I'm riding my recumbent.

How much for the kids then? Family discount?

Do the vests fit over the top of a backpack? Lots of cyclists ride with
those.

Indeed. Also can I have two in case one is in the wash? Or do we just
have to make do with one? (Ohh pheww!)
