Gday all, What a $h1tty week to be riding in Sydney eh? Anyway I was talking to a mate who works for a road works crew and he said that it has been unofficially decided that all new road markings (Arrows, ped X'ings etc) will not be painted. Instead they will use that plastic/glass compound crap. Now this may be old news to some of you; but that stuff is banned in nearly all european countries. Why? Because its goddamn dangerous whether its wet or not. The mixture does have a small amount of 'grit' in it to help traction, but it is common knowledge (Especially with the boys putting it down) that in about a week all of that gets pushed to the bottom by cars leaving only the glassy surface. But then again this is from the people who decided that the only piece of safety wear you are under legal requierment to wear is a helmet.... :?
