Denise Nagorcka, Byron Bay

I am a driver, cyclist, pedestrian: so cyclists for your safety, could you please:

1. Make yourselves visible at night. Wear high visibility clothing, add lights and reflectors to your bike.

2. Ride in the same direction as traffic when using designated bike lanes. If a large vehicle is turning right, vehicles proceeding on the left can’t see you coming if you’re riding on the wrong side of the road because you are hidden from view by the turning vehicle.

3. Not use mobile phones while riding on a road or footpath. Your attention needs to be on safety – yours and pedestrians.

4. Consider the advantages of wearing a helmet.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
