Health insurance is in the news again ... http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-10-18/health-insurance-dont-blame-y...

More effective treatments are increasingly becoming available to be used to improve the length and quality of our lives.

In a sense we could say that buying and using a bicycle is our health insurance.

Many (non-riders) would consider riding a life-shortening activity however.

Remember cars are safe and riding is dangerous!

I agree it's the opposite. Sitting on the couch and drinking beer is **really** dangerous. 

Riding a bike.  Driving a car.  Sitting on a couch drinking beer.

I've been known to do all three!  Sometimes on the same day : )

Living life on the edge!

As Meatloaf would say, 2 out of 3 ain't bad ....

I have a partial solution ... Nahhhhh ...

Environmental pollution — from filthy air to contaminated water — is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. More than smoking, hunger or natural disasters. More than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

A car that won't door a cyclist!

Who'd a' thunk it?

Shame it doesn't lock the doors completely and trap them inside, forcing them to listen to Rick Astley, until they move it and park somewhere other than the bikelane.

Sigh....  3 points and $378

Disgusting isn't it?

Something along the same lines. Will probably get a similar fine ... http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-10-25/yasmin-mcallister-man-in-cour...

That's certainly the tone of the report.  

Interesting one by local councilor Andrew Vines. He wants to put a resident parking scheme in around all train stations. He hopes that by doing this he will encourage the state to build ever bigger parking stations at train stations.

“What option do we have than to drive?”

He doesn't at any stage make the leap to thinking that BCC could increase the safety and amenity of people wanting to walk or ride to the stations by providing cycling and walking facilities. But I guess that would be his responsibility.
