"As for MHL repeal, never going to happen. We are the only place in the world with the stupid law, and it here to stay. The battle was lost long ago when the first cycling bodies were founded. Have a look at the founding funding for the bicycle…"

"I just want to go back to the original post about the stupid laws. On a single lane road, traffic can form as many 'lines' as they want, and over take as close as they want. The new rule sets 1m distance for passing cyclists. On a…"

"Don't forget, the motorists that are noisy also think travelling at anything but exactly the speed limit (or up to 10% more) is utterly absurd and the most dangerous thing in the world, even if visibility is drastically reduced due to hail or…"

"Has anyone set up a register of close pass complaints that were reported to the police and then ignored or resulted in a warning only?   I suspect the police are avoiding ticketing drivers so at the end of the 2 year "close pass laws"…"

"Sorry to bump the thread, but there seems to be a system that does definitely measure how close cars come.  Anyone seen this? http://www.lanesight.com/"

"Happy for this not to turn into a slagging match. It doesnt get anywhere and Damien has already been called out on Twitter for allowing this thread. Many of you have been around a lot longer than I or Stephen have, and I acknowledge that, but when…"

"David, that's a slightly amusing pic, but lets not let this thread slip into a "let's make fun of Dave Sharp" segment.  If you've had poor interaction with Dave or anyone else to do with cycling advocacy, happy for you…"

"What input? He didnt make it to a single meeting, even his car broke down to one. Maurice Blackburn was at them representing SCA, but I am not sure any of the actual leg work was down. I give the guy 10/10 for starting the petition, but there was…"

"Wow, OK. That's surprising given his input into the Cycling Inquiry. Maybe it was simply paying lawyers lots of money? Anyway, good to hear."

Aaron Ball replied to Stephen Mitchell's discussion "Attacked" by a QLD cycling advocate
"Good to hear.  As an advocate it's bloody hard to get to meet decision makers (especially if you want to tell them things they don't want to hear), so it is disappointing if they're hearing the 'wrong' message from the…"

"Paul, my conversations with TMR, QPS, BCC and many other areas of Government are that he doesn't.Many have NFI who he is, many others sort of smirk when his name is mentioned and others tell us that they want nothing to do with him."
