And I don't know whether it was reported in Sydney news but apparently another tragic, negligent aggression-fueled hit & run cyclist death occurred yesterday. :cry:

This is really senseless. Okay ACA and Today Tonight, you've had your fun - now just stop it. People are dieing out there. How many in the last week alone?
