I suggest putting your local police station's number into your mobile phone. Also helps if you know a officer at that station who cycles, that way you can ask for them, get's alot more action!

Are you 100% sure of that?

Have a read through the Queensland Transport "Heavy Vehicle Driver Fatigue Fact Sheet 7"

http://www.transport.qld.gov.au/resourc ... sector.pdf

Pay particular attention to the section "Standard Hours"

Thanks Lark read the standard hours section.

Did you read the start of the 2nd paragraph?

"However, the Standard Hours option has specific differences
for bus and coach operations"

Thats exactly how alot of cyclists treat pedistrians on footpaths.

Your so one eyed Max. You have to lose this everyone out to get you attitude.

Yes of course in a perfect world Police should patrol every square inch of our roads & shared footpaths & book offenders (rolls eyes)

Pedistrians should also be able to walk on shared footpaths (as is their legal entitlement) without being endangered by cyclists too.

I have never seen a cyclist get booked for riding through a red light or booked for flying past a small child on a shared footpath twice the legal speed with no regard for the childs safety & i doubt i ever will.

Unfortunately we do not live in a perfect world & resources are limited. Get real.
