LOL - A similar thing was in the pathetic movie "Scary Movie 2" -
somewhere at the beginning - 'caus I did not get more than halfway
through the movie.

Eh ? When did I get "that" polite ?

Nah, I'm a committed cyclist (and not necessarily in that order)

Funny thing about stroppy careless dangerous car drivers
monstering cyclists - they don't seem to realise for a few
coins and their license plate I can find out all about them, but
they can't do the same to me back. I'm sure you'd see some
positive behaviour modification if that ever did dawn on them

But you have to have a good reason :-)
It says so on the form you have to sign.

I Jo Jinx do solemnly declare .....

This is a very sore point in my area at the moment, Jinx. I like to
cycle, but see both sides of the argument. I agree that cyclists have
rights to use the roads, but when you see cyclists holding up entire
lanes of traffic at 30 or 40 km/h - you have to woder. Have they paid
any registration fees or taxes to contribute to the building of the
roads?

Cheers,

Sean

You could argue that legally they aren't required to. Many motorists
would also argue that enough fuel taxes aren't going towards road
maintainence but get sucked up into the Consolidated Fund. With
just 4m population revenue is very limited and you'll never please
everyone when trying to run a whole country on a taxation base that
wouldn't even be a big city in many countries. And NZ is basically
Auckland and "the rest", which leads to regional bun-fights

There are several very busy multi-lane intersections and arterial
roads around here, and I'm not game to play in the traffic like that.
Not that I'm ecstatic about being way over to the left in the potholes
and rubbish though

The two things that really scare me are (1) drivers who turn across
your path (like the wretched woman the other day gabbing to her
passenger who didn't even look) and especially (2) cars that overtake
mere feet before a sideroad and cut you off as they turn. I've had a
couple of nasty moments almost being clipped by rear bodywork

I'm not sure about 'positive'. Never heard of a flattened cyclist raising
a fuss. What movie was that where the bad guys had swords mounted on the
hubcaps, like roman attack buggies, and were hunting people with them ?
Mad Max ?

Any rules against stopping and kicking the bike into a bent shape out of
frustration, and then presenting that as evidence ?
