    Imagine the chaos and gridlock if each rider in these vids was in a car instead - which is just what Vic Police and TAC are strategising for:

    How much better would this scene be if bikes (and bicycles for that matter) were dominant:

    If this vid isn't a poster child for motorcycling and how motorcycling has congestions benefits, I'll go heave.

  2. a point raised in two of those vids: emergency services stuck in traffic.
    we have shitty ambo response time for a large portion of the country, we have bike ambos in certain areas (which should tell you something right there)
    perhaps we can use that as part of our campaign?

    All the bikes are splitting through to the right of the left-most lane - great to see riders being so disciplined - all the drivers in the adjacent lanes would be expecting bikes to be there.

  5. I know! You could fit little lights to each corner of your car, and have the ones on the left flash when you want to move left, and the ones on the right flash when you want to move right! That way the people around you would know what you're trying to do, and could make room as necessary! Its a brilliant idea, no?

    :p

  8. A protest/awareness ride needs to happen to show vicroads et al the err of their ways.

  11. They were invented a long time ago, unfortunately the larger your car is, the less the chance of them working. (judging from experience)
