A Cycle forum member was sick of MHL mentioned, and wanted the topic banned.
Did people for all time want things banned or people killed/deported if they didn’t like something?
Like cycling banned if not wearing a helmet. I see banning working for everything (sarcasm).
I ride on the beach. A local government property by-law has banned bicycles on the beach, in 2009/2011, before any popularity of the bicycles now sold in Australia that could ride on the beach. Banning leaves no ability for discretion, fair use policies or fair policing for any real issues.
So an honest healthy activity fitting between pedestrians and jogging, is outlawed, and fines imposed.
They say sarcasm is the lowest form of humour. Banning is such a bad joke that it makes sarcasm look intelligent.
I think MHL is one part of the multi-generational cultural problem that results in examples of senseless banning of bicycles and "our own kind" logically deducing that bigger harsher punishments for misdemeanors is progress for "our cause".
Time to ban children.
Short answer, of course you don’t, this is Australia, where the reality is the automobile is the protected majority.
The plaintiff was riding his electric bicycle home from work along a shared pathway designated for cyclists and pedestrians when the defendant reversed out of his driveway directly into the plaintiff’s path. Although the plaintiff cried out the split second prior to the collision, he was unable to brake or swerve and collided into the side of the defendant’s vehicle. The impact was of such severity to render him a quadriplegic.
