The Channel Nine’s Mornings with Kerri-Anne has a few things to answer for. Not only has she blatantly been against cyclists in her past episodes, but today seemed to be a repeat of her appalling opinions against cyclists all over again.
Again, she and her panel are trying to prove that cyclists don’t pay for roads and quite a few other issues that have nothing to do with cyclists. If cyclists paid for regos and had number plates, that still doesn’t account for the fact that people break the law. And the idea that motorists take account for their actions is complete bullshit. *pardon the french*
…if cyclists expect other road users to give way we should reciprocate by following the road rules. In the midst of the Tour Down Under I was very disappointed to see an amateur team sail through a red light, no doubt in a desperate bid to get to their coffee venue. If we can’t be bothered why should everyone else – except, of course, the cyclist will come off worse. Jonathan Miller, Adelaide SA via Australian Cyclist.
Anyway, I’ve been too angry to write about this propaganda whoring, but you can check out the finer points of many shared opinions here from a past show where she claims the same ideas. As well as here for a good opinion email about common courtesy.
