Roads are for cars, not Lycra louts

Sydney Morning Herald, 29 October 2009

Whoever made up the Roads and Traffic Authority's 1990s slogan ''the road is there to share'' has a lot to answer for. It's a big fat lie. The road is not there to share. Roads are built for cars. Pretending otherwise is unfair to motorists and cyclists alike. It leads to tragic accidents and violent incidents such as the attack on a 64-year-old bus driver by a cyclist last Friday.
