Two weeks ago I had to wait in Mooball, by the rail trail crossing of the Pottsville Road. During the 30 minutes I was there, maybe two dozen bikes crossed the Pottsville Road. There are big red STOP signs. Not one person obeyed the traffic rules and stopped. They deliberately cycled between the rails, or around them.
Later that same afternoon, my sister attended a music function at Stoker`s Siding. Whilst traversing the Dunbible crossing in her car, a bike shot across in front of her. She shouted that he should obey the traffic STOP sign. He flicked her a V sign and told her to get f—–.
It is high time that the traffic police collected much needed revenue by fining these people who have no concern for road rules. As they show no means of identification, confiscate their bike and treat them no differently from us vehicle road users.
All crossings should be fenced off on one side. Fit a locked gate to the other for medical access if needed. And fit a one-foot step within the pipe rails so that they have to dismount and walk across all gazette roads. Road rules must apply to all.
