(Photos: my bike's perspective from traffic lights, King Street, Newtown)
Regulation 256 is an example of manifold discrimination towards road users other than motorists, and as such displays an unacceptable level of preferential treatment for one group over another.
Coupled with their own ignorance & the support of other protectionist bodies (aka Bicycle NSW & UNSW), the NSW government has embraced a blatant top-down approach in order to paralyse the freedom of choice debate.
Should this status quo continue, government inertia and deferred action will be the continued 'Plat du jour' ad infinitum - sigh!
So join me on the "Punk Commute" to remind our democratically elected representatives exactly what we're looking for in the 'much-awaited-brand-new-transport-landscape'...
...and it isn't more congestion!
