    So should this "Aussie Hero" face fines, the GoFundMe page will cover it.
    What a lovely signal to send to cyclists.

    It really does seem that Oz is quite anti-cyclist.
    Anyone have any ideas why?

    Hope the judge has the option to send him off to chokey for the offence, that might do it.

    Seems to be a side affect of having a pretty masculine culture.

    Saw a Mitsubishi shogun go through a red light today & swerved around all the cars joining the road from the green lights across. I think they just didn’t want to stop so did it on purpose.

    The reason I dislike Australia is because it has even more nodders than the UK, which is quite an achievement.

    Sometimes it almost seems like the UK spent nearly 100 years dumping its nodders in Australia to fark it up, isn't it?

    It's funny that the two cyclists were coppers. It would've been even funnier if he had stopped, cos knowing Aussie cops the chap would have had a terrible accident while climbing out of his car.

    Its embedded in their culture for reasons I can't fathom, but its perpetuated by successive governments and a media that is so rabid it makes the Daily Mail seem a calm and authoritative news source. That said, the Australians are stupid enough to keep believing it.

    No worse that the car in front of it parked on the pavement. The council have a downer simply because it's an APC, and such is the vitriol of their feigned indication they are completely overlooming conventional vehicles being parked in the same manner.
