Very obvious that you just want to take a contrary view to me on things Earl. If I say up, you'll post down. You should try debate the points being made irrespective of who is making them, rather than have whoever made a particular post colour your attitude to a particular topic. Go on, try it. You might even enjoy the novelty of it.
What point was being made? You claimed that cyclists don't post videos of other cyclists breaking the rules. What is there to debate, you were caught bullshitting again?
 
I'm over 6 foot tall and shall we say built more for comfort than for speed. I don't get knocked down by cyclists, but my niece was, and I heard only last night that my mother-in-law was hit by one recently. What's your point on this exactly Honky? In well over 40 years driving I never knocked anyone down. Are you saying that the rules of the road should be drafted purely on the experiences of certain individuals and that given I've never knocked anyone down in a car I shouldn't need car insurance or something?
Thanks, you have never been knocked down by a cyclist.. as I figured would be the case

The number is all I asked for, the rest is just fluff Ive heard a million times before
 
I am car mad, probably overly so, but I also have a number of bikes including a racing bike, gravel bike and mountain bikes and love going out for spins on the bikes.

Honestly I think the Bus Connects program, in its current form, will destroy the city. Tearing the local community environments apart and introducing gridlock on other routes.

A simpler solution would be to
introduce a congestion charge solution. Simpler and faster to mobilise and it truly targets the challenge. Hand back the existing roads to the lowest polluters.

I think it's unworkable in its current form tbh.

Your post is based on the assumption that bus corridors won't lessen car usage, surely the plan is to get more people using public transport and to have less single occupant cars clogging up the city.

We need to give people viable sf alternatives to driving in cars as a means of moving around the city and in particular in bringing children to and from school, will bus connects deliver that? That is the pertinent question here.

No.

Jeebus, congratulations on being such a pedant in your ongoing fixation with me.


I don't even remember what you're referring to but I think it would have been obvious to most reading my posts that I'd have meant generally cyclists don't post videos of other cyclists breaking the rules. Of course there are some cyclists posting up videos of cyclists breaking rules; some motorists posting videos of motorists breaking the rules, and indeed I'm sure there'll even be some pedestrians posting up videos of pedestrians breaking the rules. But generally it tends not to work like that.

Most people would have grasped that concept but I see your fixation with me is such that you've stored up your potential for pedantry like some weird hoarder. Well done you. :rolleyes:
