Yep mib you're correct, they're only allowed to stop motor vehicles, trams, trains or vessels for RBT's.

Correction, the red circles are crossings*

Comment by matt yesterday

One of the drawing guys gave me a map of bike paths around BNE btw - I believe the red circles are lock up points, dashed lines are either planned paths or on-road bike-lanes.

I've been told that the law doesn't give the police the authority to random breath test cyclists. So, any results would not hold up in court. Please note this doesn't stop them from breath testing a cyclist, it just can't be done via a RBT. They need to have stopped them under some other pretence first.

Did the police take any photos? If so you might become as famous as Terry on the "What the?" Friday QPS posts :-)

Comment by matt yesterday

My first RBT today - although once he realised the 'motor' he heard was just me slamming the breaks to slow down, he told me they didn't want me! (not sure how accurate my speedo is, and I was doing 65 in a 70k downhill).

Couple incredulous looks from the other police, but better than expected!

Interesting Aaron, I wonder how each of them figures a shared path connecting the two would effect their interests? Small minded knobs.

Wouldn't Council be able to over rule that?  Or would it be a TMR thing?
