Cycling law options

ONCE again we enter the silly season for cyclists.

Where else do authorities allow 100km/h narrow arterial roads to be used by cyclists to pedal along at 10km/h?

If this is not an obviously dangerous situation I do not know what is.

Any occupational health and safety person working in the private sector would immediately ban such a practice.

In some states there is a push to register bikes and require public accident insurance.

In fairness to the public who funds the road network and cycle paths this is just common sense.

Cyclists are not covered by Motor Accident Insurance in at least NSW as a recent test case has proven.

Also, with bikes becoming motorised with small petrol or electric motors they are obviously vehicles and should be treated as such.

Some have even suggested that any such vehicle used on a public road should meet the Australian design rules for a motorbike.

Cyclists should be licenced or hold a motor vehicle license.

Many major new roads in Tasmania are still built without any provision for cyclists and subdivisions are designed without cycle paths so kids can access schools, etc without venturing onto roads.

This can be seen as short-sighted.

The push to put expensive cycle paths on the existing road infrastructure, however, is a serious waste of money.

In urban areas in other states, cycleways which have taken up valuable traffic lanes are being removed because it has become obvious that the cost of increased motor vehicle congestion (use of fuel and delays) far outweighs the savings from the use of bikes.

In fact, cyclists not using public transport as may otherwise be the case, is a significant contributor to the losses made by buses.

Building cycle paths with the cyclists contributing for their construction, stopping cyclists using roads where it is obviously dangerous for them to do so, and requiring cyclists to pay for accident insurance, seems a quite sensible option.
