Hi folks. Saw this:- SA cyclists allowed on footpaths, cars to keep minimum distance under new rules While I can see the safe distance business, and I can even go with pushbikes on the footpath, (I do have a stout walking stick with a brass head!) I'm not sure about allowing cars to cross double white lines to give enough space to pushbikes. Either a section of road has a double white line for safety or it doesn't. I'd be seriously pissed off if I got killed in a head=on with a car and it wouldn't make me feel any better knowing that a pushbike rider's safety had caused the car to be on my side of the road.
