Since the road surface was under construction, and a bicyclist decided to take the sidewalk. The bicyclist fell off the sidewalk. He was bloodied.
I couldn’t pass the cyclist because of the useless islands in the middle road. The SUV tail gating me probably coulldn’t see the cyclist and passed the pair of us illegally. It is only a matter of time until a cyclist gets killed or seriously injured on Preston Point Rd between Petra St and Riverside Drive / Wauhop Road. Personally, I use Jerrat Drive to bypass this section, the only section of Preston Point Road between Wauhop Road and Canning Highway without cycle lanes.
Broken glass in the bike gutter forces me onto the sidewalk
As I left the roundabout, a black Vauxhall was gaining on me at a speed which seemed excessive for the 30mph limit, so I mounted the pavement to avoid the danger, only for it to be followed by an even faster Subaru! ‘W88 MLS’ and ‘V88 MLS’… coincidence?
Drivers are often driving into the semi-separated bike lane (flexible delineator posts on wheel stops) over the kerbs to avoid driving over the speed cushions.
On a highway, this would be fixed quickly. Let’s hope it get fixe on a cycling highway as well.
Would this be allowed on a highway for cars?
