I'm interested in what you think the safety benefits of bicycle registration are.If you want to ride a bike on a main road during busy times then maybe you should have bike rego.
Whether it would be cost effective or not is redundant, its a government service in the interest of public safety.
I assume you're being facetious, but even so, it would simply mean more cars on the road. And given that in any accident between cars and bikes, the car driver has been found to be responsible more than 90 per cent of the time, it would probably make the roads more dangerous.For a start it would result in less cyclists on the road.
Because licence plates stop motorists from speeding, tailgating, running red lights, not indicating?Cyclist may be more inclined to obey road rules for fear they may get fined etc. Apparently traffic lights and road signs don't apply to half the cyclists
So many cars have dash cams, can report them same as others do for motorist.Because licence plates stop motorists from speeding, tailgating, running red lights, not indicating?
Despite what people think, motorists aren't going to be taking down numberplates and reporting them to police, they certainly don't when they see other motorists doing the above mentioned acts. Also, do you want to know what will happen if you ring the police, give them a numberplate and tell them what offence you saw them doing? Nothing, because that's not evidence. The only way a cyclist would get fined is if a police officers sees them, in which case, the registration is irrelevant.
Driving home on the freeway from the football Saturday night I saw a car with no headlights on. The only thing lighting up the road infront was the daytime running lights. Are people that dumb not to notice if thier headlight indicator is lit on the dashboard? This was at half past 10 at night!
happens to me all the time, its always near a side street from me aswell, i always cover the brake if i see a car in the streetcampaigners who pull out in front of me and I have to brake to avoid hitting them. Especially when there's no one else behind me and they could've waited 2-3 seconds. Happened too many times the last week or two.
A close second would be those that drift in the opposite direction to what they are going to turn......so it seems your about to get sideswiped or cut off by someone, when they have plenty of room to turn but drift out.People who turn left from the right hand lane instead of moving to the left lane to turn when there are two lanes are the biggest campaigners and shouldn't be allowed on the roads.
then the buses are never able to rejoin traffic because campaigners don't let them inAnother one with building roads, plenty road again. There is plenty of room so could have easily been done - they have gone from 2 lanes to 3 but didn't put a bus stop in. It will have to stop and the left hand lane will come to a standstill. Just easier to put a bus-stop in and therefor traffic wont stop and bottleneck.
